Today we talk about what’s new on the telly and in theatres, and what we’re watching now.
The new Star Wars movie, ‘The Force Awakens’, opened to record breaking crowds. It’s a mix of old and new, familiar yet fresh. Here’s our take on it: what we liked, what we didn’t. There are spoilers so if haven’t seen the movie yet and intend to, you might want to wait to listen to this podcast. Either way you’ll enjoy our discussions and will undoubtedly share some of our views. Awaken the Force within you!
These are the droids you’re looking for !
Happy New Year! So to start off the new year, we talk about last year. At least we start talking about it and then we talk about Amazon Prime, Beethoven, and the more memorable “pop culture” things that happened over the course of 2015.
There may or may not be spoilers for Sense8 and Star Wars: The Force Awakens
Since we’re all off feeling the Yuletide love, we decided to repost this show for your enjoyment: What We Hate About the Holidays. Check back for new Audacious Eleven next week… in 2016!
“In this show, we talk about what drives us crazy during the holiday season, and how to handle “those questions” (you know the ones – “When are you having a baby?” “When are you getting married?” “When are you getting a real job?”) from relatives or others that you only see maybe once a year.
Our advice is to be prepared: have your “elevator speech” ready. Donna has an example of how to graciously change the subject. Wendy has a rant about how many “real jobs” someone in the arts actually has. Mary has a rant about how people in the performing arts are perceived by people outside the field.
We also talk about the secret Santa societies and the documentary film I Am Santa Claus (playing on Netflix at the time of this writing), and a beautifully written essay on how a performing artist answered the question ‘Do you have a [real] job?‘”
