761: Milli Vanilli, Tarantula Tragedy, & Fire Fear


Show Notes

Sarah and Susie are fresh off their Denver reunion, and ready for more candy for their brains. We start with a discussion about Milli Vanilli, the lip-synching duo from the 90s, who were exposed and exiled from the charts. Susie learned a lot more details about their careers that shed some light on why they did it, why the music industry was in on it, and the vitriol that followed. We hear Susie’s connection to the group. We learn about a tarantula that almost caused a car crash and Susie is mad that he’s still living his best life. We discuss “siren clubs” that are happening among Pacific Islanders in New Zealand and the debate about how to handle their noisy “cultural” expressions. We hear why fire is so hard to make in CGI, and why Sarah believes the hit film, Backdraft contributes to her fear of fire to this day.
