SHOW NOTES: S01E13, "Knock, Knock"
Friends! We made it to the finale of season one! Thank you so much for listening—we appreciate you so much, and we can't wait to go on the rest of this ride with you.
Our special guest this week is Alison Cherry, the producer of this show! (Me, it's me! I also write the show notes! It's really weird to write about myself in the third person!) Her official bio and photo are on our About Us page, but, here are a few fun facts about her:
1) Alison loves doing "animal encounters" at wildlife sanctuaries. Here's a picture of her holding a domesticated fox at the JAB Canid Conservation and Education Center in CA. She has her eye on a red panda and a beluga whale she'd like to meet.
2) Alison was once rushed to the hospital after falling through a ten-foot-high piece of scenery at the Metropolitan Opera, where she was working as a photographer.
3) Alison tried her hand at claymation last year and won a music video contest run by rapper/singer Dessa. Her submission is now the official music video for the song "Shrimp."
And now, in the words of Caroline, "Let's get into it."
To start off on a serious but important note, Jenna says she thought this week's death fake-out was "one of those things where women experience heart attacks differently." It's true—they do!—and many women don't get their symptoms checked out because they think it's something far less serious. Here's an important article about women and heart attacks—please take care of yourselves!
Caroline mentions in this episode that she got in trouble when her pager went off in class and she pretended it was her Tamagotchi, which is possibly the most late 90s/early 2000s sentence that has ever been uttered. For our younger listeners who are baffled, Tamagotchis were super popular "digital pets" created in Japan in 1996. If you didn't "feed them" (by pressing buttons), they "died." Here's a picture of one. You can read (a surprising amount) more about Tamagotchi history and game play here.
We do some speculating in this episode about whether Claire Fisher and Veronica Mars would get along. What do you think, dear listeners? Write in and tell us. They both like a good pink shirt under a green print, if these pictures are anything to go on. (Claire would NEVER wear that hat, though.)
All of us lost our minds when Caroline mentioned that Jeremy Sisto was considered for the role of Jack Dawson in the movie Titanic, and then we lost them again when we found his screen test with Kate Winslet. Scroll all the way down for the video and enjoy the magic.
If you're curious to read more about the Lambeth Conference Resolution on Human Sexuality that Jenna talked about, you can do so here. The next Lambeth Conference is scheduled to take place in 2020.
And since we can't possibly end on a note of bigotry, please enjoy this picture of the Jenna-nominated Best Look of the Season, Gabe's badass eagle jacket. If only the person inside the jacket were as excellent.
We're going to take a short break before we jump into season two, but we'll be back in your feed later this fall. Until then, keep your feet and your MDMA and your babies where they're supposed to be (in the funeral home, out of the funeral home, and out of the funeral home, respectively.) We'll miss you, but feel free to get in touch on Twitter or Instagram anytime at @notoversfu! We're here for all your SFU-related thoughts and feelings.
