As we bid farewell to 2021 and hope for better and brighter days in the new year, I felt it prudent to send this year off with some folly and Toddies! I didn't want to do it alone. So I got one of my favorite people my Big Sister-Cuz, Bambi Jones, to come sit and chat for another good feels get down Holiday VM&M episode!
Last year was so much FUN that we decided to turn the shenanigans all the way up this time! We get into not just what we have, and are currently, binge watching and how it makes us feel, but some heavier chat about the connection between what entertainment we consume and its relevance to our world. Speaking of which, Bambi clues us in on the historic moment that happened when Broadway reopened post pandemic lockdown in NYC. Did you know that seven Plays that were written by seven Black Playwrights, were a major part of that reopening? If not, get ready to be in the know! She gets all into it for us! And you can check out my Blog for additional links and info about all seven of the shows.
We had a lot to cover! So much so that this is going up in 2 parts! Yes,we go deep here and there,but we bring more than enough love and laughter to the party as well. Don't believe me? Check out the VM&M Youtube Channel to see our version of "The 12 Days of Christmas!" featured in the Holiday Shenanigans Episode Preview video. You'll be glad you did!
So grab those tasty hot beverages, preferable a Hot Toddie, and join us for some Holiday cheer!
Happy Holidays & Happy New Year!
