You asked and I answered! Today I’m joined by my good friend (and friend of the show), Alana Dawson. Alana is a podcast coach and podcaster, as well as a fellow fan of pop culture, and she is here for another round of “Ask the Couch.” You all have sent me your burning questions about TV, movies, books, and more—and I’m here with the answers. Or at least my opinions. Either way, we had a lot of fun talking about all of it, and I think you’ll enjoy listening too.

One note: This episode is airing a bit earlier than I originally planned, so when I say that the Saved by the Bell reboot and second season of Virgin River are already out, don’t get confused. Saved by the Bell comes back tomorrow, the 25th, and Virgin River returns on Friday, the 27th. Also, if you’re wondering why I didn’t mention Wonder Woman 1984 when we talk about upcoming movies, it’s because at the time of this recording, I didn’t know when it would be released. Now we know it will be released in theaters and on HBO Max on Christmas Day, and I am absolutely looking forward to that! All right, everything else should make perfect sense. So get comfy and enjoy episode #65 of The Couch!
