Editor for The Billfold Nicole Dieker makes a case for the 1978 miniseries version of Little Women, starring basically everyone who was on a famous TV show in the 1970s. Listen to Nicole play a ~brand new~ season two game, and discuss who her famous bae would be (hint: It's NOT William Shatner, who *was indeed* in the 1978 version of Little Women). 

Follow Nicole on Twitter @HelloTheFuture and pre-order her book, The Biographies of Ordinary People, out May 23!

Season 2 premiere! Motorcycle Instructor Jesse Lamp doesn't want you to stop learning things just because you're not in school anymore. In this "lost" September 2016 episode from Meryl's last weeks of living in Portland, she interviews a dude she's known most of her life about growing up in a conservative part of the country, but how the military and two deployments to Iraq broadened his horizons. Travel and a lifelong love of learning has taught him the values of knowing about and understanding other cultures.

Follow Jesse on Twitter at @Jesse_Lamp_101!

Sidenote: Members of both the bands Saintseneca and Papadosio went to high school with Jesse and Meryl in southeastern Ohio. Small world!
