On this week's episode of Parenting Roundabout's entertainment-themed Round 2, Catherine and Terri check in with a new TV series and an old one, plus the latest in Hamilton- and Lin-Manuel Miranda-related pop culture. Here's your road map:
00:35 The Great American Baking Show - The Great British Baking Show has pitched its enormous tent on American soil, and we are basking in its warm, comfortable, sweet-smelling glow.
10:11 The Hamilton Mixtape - Maybe you've heard that we're fans of Hamilton and its creator, Lin-Manuel Miranda? In news that shocks no one, we love the new Hamilton Mixtape, as will as Lin-Manuel's interview with Marc Maron and his turn on Drunk History (even if he didn’t seem all that drunk to us).
16:26 The West Wing - Along with the West Wing Weekly podcast, we watched "Noel," a particularly fine season-2 episode guest-starring Adam Arkin (and the delightfully snobby Paxton Whitehead; see video above).
For next week's episode, we'll watch The West Wing episode "The Leadership Breakfast" and see how the American bakers do on their attempts to bake bread. Join us!
