I started hosting a podcast with my aunt several months ago, and I’ve come to think that I should post my new episodes here so that all my readers can conveniently access them. So below are the first eight episodes of That’s Auntertainment! (as well as five mini-episodes, and one “update” episode).

Episode 1: 2019 Primetime Emmy Awards

Every week, I list all the upcoming (or recently released) movies, TV shows, albums, podcasts, etc. that I believe are worth checking out.

Not too many movies are going to be released theatrically anytime soon. I’ll let you know if any good streaming options pop up!

There’s no new premieres I’m looking forward to this week. Weird.

-The Weeknd, After Hours

Dead Eyes – This debuted a couple months ago. It’s about Connor Ratliff exploring why he was fired by Tom Hanks from the miniseries Band of Brothers.

Best Podcasts of the 2010s

Any ranking of the best of the best must come with the caveat that the ranker hasn’t seen/heard everything, and that’s especially true in the case of podcasting, despite it being one of the youngest entertainment mediums around. Obviously I didn’t listen to every podcast released in the 2010s, but I did listen to my fair share. My feed mainly consisted of comedy, pop culture, and comedic pop culture shows. But even if I confine myself to those categories, I cannot claim that I was anywhere near comprehensive. So then, what you are about to read is the revelation of my podcast journey I went on in the past decade.

October 23, 2019 – Pop culture maven Jeffrey Malone, along with his aunt, Beth Woods, are proud to announce the launch of their entertainment discussion podcast, That’s Auntertainment!
