episode 520: Laura Krafft

This week brings you the inimitable multi-talented writer & more, Laura Krafft ("The Colbert Report,""The Harper House”), whose family tree and sibling dynamics make for perfect JV Club material. Plus! Some of JV’s favorite “movies you’d jump into” unexpected choices in the history of the podcast!



episode 519: Kerri Doherty

It doesn’t take an armchair detective to understand what drew JV and the charming Kerri Doherty (The Goldbergs; Out On The Lanai podcast) to each other, but it DID take an awesome investigator to make their worlds collide.



episode 518: Rose Abdoo

This will be one of our shorter episode descriptions, and here’s why: you simply MUST listen to this episode with Rose Abdoo ("Gilmore Girls!"“Hacks!"“Reboot!" More more more!), because you will be missing too much joy otherwise. Truly!



episode 517: Cricket Leigh

Pour this bit of sunshine into your ears (which sounds weirder than we meant it to) with the dear and inspiring Cricket Leigh (MAI in AVATAR THE LAST AIRBENDER!)



episode 516: Boys of Summer - Migizi Pensoneau

Get a gorgeous mountain range in view and savor that green chile omelette with Migizi Pensoneau (“Reservation Dogs”), who takes us from Minnesota to New Mexico to Connecticut to… well, just get ready to travel. And bring your love of 80’s/90’s absurdist comedies with you! Plus: more love for "Avatar: The Last Airbender" and the scrumptiously watchable “Barkskins!"
