Episode 51: Gloss Gone Horribly, Horribly Wrong

0051 FosseThis week, dear listeners, bring out your jazz hands, because we talk about BOB FOSSE! Well, mostly Windy talks about Bob Fosse. But that’s alright, because Melissa suggested the topic because she knew she could be lazy for an episode while Windy expounded upon the greatness of Bob Fosse.

If you would like to drink along with us (and you know Fosse would have wanted it that way), we suggest Esprit Barville Cotes du Rhone, which was a lovely red wine. It’s probably not as high octane as what Fosse would be imbibing were he still alive, but it certainly kept us going strong.
