So, the other day, while cruising the Interwebs, I stumbled upon something spectacular.
Wanna know what it was?
A Golden Girls podcast.
That’s right. A GOLDEN GIRLS PODCAST.
It’s called “Out on the Lanai” and it is fantabulous.
Ever since I turned 30, the Golden Girls have been, like, my religion.
If I’m sad, sick, tired, or whatever extreme mood I may be in, I know there’s an episode or two of the Girls that will take my mind off of my life. Well, at least for 20 minutes to an hour.
I can’t even tell you what my favourite episode is; I don’t think it’s even possible to have just one?
I also can’t even tell you which GG is my favourite.
Though, I did take a “Which Golden Girl Are You?” quiz and as it stands now, I got Sophia and Dorothy.
I’m not mad. In fact, my best friend always used to tell me that I was like a mixture of Dorothy’s sarcasm and level-headedness and Sophia’s sass and wit.
So, the hosts of “Out on the Lanai”, H. Alan Scott and Kerri Doherty, are super hilarious. And they often have equally entertaining guests on their podcast episodes.
I’m all kinds of jealous that I don’t have another GG enthusiast to do a podcast with because the show is timeless. Sure, some of the social issues they touched on are dated, but let’s face it – this show will be treasured forever, and it is irreplaceable.
One of the things I love the most about the OOTL podcast is that they do a “golden take away” from each episode – a tiny bit of wisdom you can take to heart and can apply to your life.
When it comes to the Golden Girls, for me, the two lessons I learned from these ladies are: You can choose your family and that your life doesn’t have to end just because somebody else’s does.
