Ross and Carrie Practice The Art of Living: Subtly Snoring Edition


On a tip from a listener, Ross and Carrie attend an introductory session at the Art of Living, a self-improvement organization that claims to use special breathing techniques and meditation practices to make people happier. They find themselves inside one of the most beautiful (and overheated) buildings in Los Angeles, for an introduction to some basic techniques, and an invitation to their PROPRIETARY Happiness Program. Are Ross and Carrie happier now? That information is proprietary.

Pop Rocket Ep 215 - Dame Angela Lansbury w/ S.A. Smythe & April Wolfe

Pop Rocket
S.A. Smythe
April Wolfe

When she was 17, Dame Angela Lansbury quit her job at a department store to take a part in a movie, as 17-year-olds are wont to do. She played a young maid to Ingrid Bergman’s character in Gaslight, a film that garnered seven Oscar nominations and two wins, including one for Best Actress for Bergman. It’s the typical tale of a young actress trying to make it big and having to struggle, role after role after role after role, to hold her own on screen with the most celebrated actors in the world, on Oscar-winning film after Oscar-winning film.

She’s now 93 years old and has been in the business for nearly eight decades, dominating the big screen, the small screen and the stage.

For this episode of Pop Rocket, we felt it important to give Dame Lansbury’s career a discussion worthy of the legend that she is, and we couldn’t do it by ourselves. We needed to bring in the biggest Fangelas we could find outside of her immediate family: April Wolfe and S.A. Smythe, two individuals that get positively giddy noting which Murder She Wrote episodes comment on on colonialism and the prison industrial complex.

You guys, this is such a great episode, and that’s not even including everyone’s All Abouts!
