Kristine started podcasting about her favorite show, Game of Thrones, but quickly grew to speak on tv and movies broadly, as well as how pop culture relates to current events.
Happy Wine Wednesday! We are back and introducing our special series, Does It Hold Up.  In this series, we will occasionally watch a classic film from the past and examine whether or not it still holds up today.  Up first, the 1983 hit Trading Places, starring Eddie Murphy and Dan Aykroyd.  The film is undoubtedly funny and features a stellar cast, but also has its problems with  blackface and gratuitous use of offensive language that definitely wouldn't fly in 2020.  As always, we kick off with our drinking selections for the week.  We also raise our glasses and salute our lovely listeners in Los Angeles, California.  Thank you for your support.  Before getting into our topic of the week, we talk all things Animal Crossing.  Kristine has joined the game and she is hooked on the Nook!Next, we get into the topic of the week - Trading Places.  We start with our overall reactions to the film and then unpack its problematic parts.  We also talk about the parts of the film that still ring true today, get into the Philadelphia of it all, and ponder what a modern version of the film might look like.  We then close out with our final verdict - is Trading Places timeless or is time up for the film?  Listen to find out where we landed.Links to ish we mentioned:The Animal Crossing videos that got Kristine hooked on the game before she could even get a Switch.An oral history of Trading Places.Until next time!  Be sure to follow us on Twitter and Instagram at @MoreWinePod!

Happy Wine Wednesday! We are saluting our favorite fictional wine mom, Linda Belcher.As always, we kick off the episode with our drinking selections and listener toast.  We raised our glasses this week to our lovely listeners in Adelaide, South Australia.  Kristine is digging ESPN Ocho and Jocelyn was excited about Digital Drag Con - links to both below.  Over in the Corona Corner, we recommended virtual game nights via Jackbox and streaming Community on Netflix to spark a little joy while you stay at home.In honor of Mother's Day, we share our favorite fictional moms.  Next, we move on to our topic of the week - the LEGENDARY Linda Belcher.  Kristine is a newbie to Bob's Burgers, so we started with our overall reactions to the show.  We are happy to report that she loved it!  Using our watchlist as a guide, we talk about Linda as a mom, a wife, and a character generally.  Indeed, Linda is a longtime member of #TeamTooMuch, but she's so endearing.  How can you not like a character who loves her wine and follows the life of a raccoon she named Little King Trashmouth? Although it's an episode all about Linda, we work in a little bonus discussion of the other Belchers we love and share our favorite songs from the watchlist. Links to ish we mentioned:Kristine welcomes the return of ESPN Ocho.Digital Drag Con - see YouTube description for time stamps.Host a virtual game night with Jackbox.Follow the voice behind Linda Belcher and the only John Roberts we acknowledge. Enjoy Linda’s Thanksgiving song.Check out the Bob’s Burgers’s Cookbook.Be sure to follow us on Twitter and Instagram at @MoreWinePod!

We are so lucky to have him!As always, we kick things off with a few things we liked and some Rona Recs.  Rob dropped some exciting news about the availability of Sprinter on Netflix in Canada and the Caribbean.  We also saluted the unforgettable Verzuz battle between Babyface and Teddy Riley. We raised our glasses and gave our heartfelt thanks to our lovely listeners in Philadelphia. Long live Comrade Gritty!Next, we get into our topic of the week - Sprinter!  Sprinter is a heartfelt, wonderfully written film that provides invaluable insight into the ways in which immigration impacts families. Rob shares lots of wonderful insights, including his inspiration for the film and favorite scene to write. We also talk about the powerful portrayal of West Indian culture, as well as the brilliant use of Jamaica as a beautiful backdrop to the story. We celebrate the film for bucking tired tropes of plots driven by Black pain and death. We also get into memorable characters, such as Kerry and Germaine and close it out with a bit of thirst. It's a really fun time and we are so grateful to Rob for joining us.  Links to ish we mentioned and where to find our guest:Follow Rob Maylor on IG and Twitter.Follow Sprinter the Film on IG and Twitter.Check out Verzuz on IG and Twitter.Be sure to follow us on Twitter and Instagram at @MoreWinePod! Support the show (https://ko-fi.com/morewinepod)
