While we're plugging away at episodes, here are some other things we're excited about. In the meantime, listen to this episode from 2017, #87: Storming the Castle.

Alex meets his hero, the thorn in the side of Dick Dale, GG Allin, and Alex Trebek. 

Listen to Episode #87: Storming the Castle
Associate Producer Jessica Yung has a recommendation for everyone who brings their lunch every day: "I got a Takenaka bento box as a gift recently, and it’s truly been a game changer for me.

"They’re so compact and, depending on which one you get, can have many compartments (mine has two levels). Now for lunch I can take a little soup, some sides, even CAKE; it’s perfect."
Heather Schröering says, "As a classic Aquarius who’s notoriously against all things most people love for no other logical reason, I hate that I’m buying into ASMR. But these mesmerizing soap-cutting videos with their crumbly, hollow sounds are really getting me to totally defy my astrological identity." 
Heavyweight Producer Kalila Holt would like to recommend the TV show You’re the Worst, which is about two terrible people trying to date each other: "It is very funny and easy to watch and yet still allows you to lean into all the sad and messy feelings that accompany trying to be with another person.

"I watched a bunch of it when I had strep and found it very comforting. Then I watched a bunch more of it when I was sad and worn out and also found it very comforting. On that note, I would also like to recommend just moving New Year’s back a little if you’re not yet ready to look ahead to a new year. I personally moved New Year’s Day to Jan. 5. It was great. I have now started this year with a terrific energy."
Samantha Lee, associate producer on Crimetown, says: "As a card-carrying member of The Burnout Generation, my brain often feels one Pro Tools crash away from a total meltdown. And in those times, I dig deep and call on a higher power: Dolly Parton. Thank Dolly Netflix gets it and made a movie with a soundtrack that's 100 percent by my queen. Dumplin'  stars Danielle Macdonald (who you should watch immediately in Patti Cake$ if you haven't already) as the plus-sized daughter of a former beauty queen (Jennifer Aniston).

"Is it a good movie? Of course not. But I highly recommend inviting over a few friends, cracking open a bottle of wine, making this chicken & dumplings recipe and laughing at Aniston's 'southern' accent with your friends. Your brains will thank you for the break. (And it's the best way to gear up for Dolly's eight-part Netflix series coming later this year.)"
