Ep. 89: What (& How) to Watch Stuff

Game of Thrones. Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt. Poldark. Great British Baking Show. Old Project Runway reruns. Handmaid’s Tale. The umpteen quirky documentaries about everything from food to Banksy.

There are so. many. things. to watch these days. How do you choose what to see with your precious few viewing hours?

To stick with our current theme: what do you say yes and no to?

That’s the topic of this episode of The Simple Show… How to not be overwhelmed by the onslaught of entertainment choices we have right now. They say it’s the Golden Age of television—there’s more than any one person can watch.
