pop a la carte 109 quarantine and chill

While self-isolating at home, Valerie, Tatiana, and Angela discuss all the productions that have been halted and releases that have been pushed back (1:00). Since the podcast was recorded, The Witcher stopped production and Kristofer Hivju tested positive, many more Disney movies have been pushed back, and movie theaters have officially closed down.

We then go over some things of the things we’ve been doing at home, such as watching Locke and Key, Lucifer and The Witcher on Netflix – and playing Witcher 3: The Wild Hunt (12:15) on any video game device. There is a book reading tangent that involves A Song of Ice and Fire, The Wheel of Time, and Anne Rice novels (18:00) before leading to the actual book recommendations of The Epic Crush of Genie Lo by F.C. Yee (20:30) and Kim Ji Young Born 1982 by Cho Nam Joo (30:30).

Asian Drama Corner this week is comprised of a Thai drama called Until We Meet Again, as well as the Korean dramas The Memorist, Hyena, and My Holo Love (38:00).

Then, Tatiana has a review of The Hunt (1:01:15), which you’ll have to watch on demand if you want to see it, and a reminder that Frozen 2 is on Disney+ three months early (1:09:00).

Finally, Valerie conducts an interview with the EP of Sacred Lies: The Singing Bones, Raelle Tucker, and director Scott Winant (1:14:00).
