The 74th annual Emmy Awards will be given out on Monday night and the only thing prognosticators can agree on is that:
a. We desperately need this diversion from the real world, and
b. Michael Keaton will win best actor in a limited series for hauntingly portraying a caring small town doctor who becomes addicted to Oxycontin in Dopesick.
We will be watching and unpacking it all in a very special new episode of Pod From A Chair this week.
Will it be Abbott Elementary over Hacks? Does White Lotus edge out Dopesick? Can Succession take the top honor once again vs. the relentless Squid Game? And how about finally rewarding the last season of Better Call Saul for… something??
More importantly, will The Chair be able to tolerate three plus very full hours of Kennan Thompson as host??
Please join us – The Chair and Holly – on Wednesday when we will give you an escape hatch from reality by unpacking the awards, the outfits and the minutia you never knew you needed to hear about until we brought it to your attention.
The Chair and Holly bring you their annual (we can say that now!) Summer Must List podcast! Find out what we’ve been watching, reading, and revisiting in this all things pop culture roundup. As our beloved Stefon would say, this episode has EVERYTHING.
We cover everything from Abbott Elementary‘s Emmy futures (lookin’ good) to Showtime’s underrated gem I Love That For You, all the way to the Chair’s love for MSNBC’s Nicolle Wallace, Mel Brooks’s audio book, and the accuracy of the Netflix algorithm (we feel seen!). Also unpacked: Jordan Peele’s Nope, Baz Luhrmann’s Elvis, HBO’s The Rehearsal, Netflix’s Uncoupled, and the possible/pretty likely return of the Golden Globes.
It’s a supersized episode bursting at the seams… and who can ask for more? Find it anywhere you get podcasts or use the link below.
