650: The Queen’s Bees, Know Regrets, & Choose Adventure


Show Notes

We discuss the death of Queen Elizabeth II and the good and bad that she represented. We learn about the Telling the Bees tradition, why the Queen’s death was announced to her bees, but also why this is not a practice reserved for monarchs. Susie tries to convince Sarah that cats have a very important advantage over dogs. We talk about the Choose Your Own Adventure book series, why the publisher wanted all the protagonists to be boys, and how the series teaches children a lot about life, virtue, risk, and regrets. Plus, and most importantly!, Susie interviews her hero, James Burrows about his incredible career in television. He directed Taxi, Cheers, Friends, Fraiser, Will & Grace, and hundreds of pilots of television that have changed American culture, television, and comedy. He is a giant of pop culture, and it was the honor of Susie’s life to speak with him about his book, Directed By James Burrows.
