I have been waiting two years for this podcast! I (Nikki) was joined by Kate (the wife) and Mike (the brother) for this extra special hour-long extravaganza. The rules for this show were as follows:
- Each pick one movie with a back-up option
- The movies had to be significant to us as a family
- No research allowed!
- Add alcohol
I cheated and chose two, but I would have been remiss (that’s the word!) if I hadn’t included Moulin Rouge, as we have watched that movie an obscene number of times as a family. The others we discuss are Into The Woods, The Others, and The Goonies. Quite a wide range of options in this bunch (with 50% Nicole Kidman representation!), so there should be something for everyone in this show. I very much apologize that it’s been so long since our last podcast, but I promise to have another one in the hopper for next month. I’m back on the scene, I swear!
For this show, we “enjoyed” some Bud Light Rita Fiestas, which we learned later are much better on ice!

Our favorite guest co-host Colette Moody joined in on the SPOILER FILLED discussion of Jennifer McMahon’s The Winter People. If you plan to read the book and don’t want to have the ending completely revealed, stop listening before the second half of the show. I think you’re safe before that. I repeat: This show is chock full of spoilers. Filled to the brim. You’ve been warned.
In celebration of our 100th episode, we’re giving away either a coffee mug or a pint glass from our Cafe Press store (http://www.cafepress.com/cocktailhour) so be sure to leave a comment no later than June 12th. You can let us know what your favorite line from this show was or if you have a favorite episode that you’d like to mention or you can just say hello. Whatever you like. We’re easy. Well, Andy is anyway…
A big thanks to everyone who has helped us and supported us over the past 100 Cocktail Hour episodes. We couldn’t have done it without all of the wonderful supporters, co-hosts, listeners, and authors who have been a part of Cocktail Hour Productions. Thank you!
In the course of the discussion we side-lined off to other things, you know how we are, but ultimately, Renee seduced us with her smooth talking wily ways and piqued our interest in her newest novel. Don’t be shy, show Renee some love and buy her book.
