Talking Your Ear Off About Yellowjackets

Episode 452,   Mar 29, 2023, 09:00 AM

Pamela Ribon returns to talk about Showtime's teen-girl survival drama!

It's time to reconnect with the Wiskayok Yellowjackets in a whole new season of Showtime's runaway hit drama, and Pamela Ribon is back -- with a sober Dave, for a change -- to talk about it! Around The Dial takes us on a real journey through Succession, Be Melodramatic, and Waco: American Apocalypse. Pam takes a big swing by pitching the Girls episode "Japan" for The Canon. Then after naming the week's Winner and Loser, it's on to a Game Time sequel that really sings. (Or, in some cases, forebodingly thrums.) Load yourself up a nice platter of bear meat and join us!
