Been waiting to do this episode of @thisdaypod since we launched the show two years ago, and I guess I’ve been sitting on this riff since 2012… This kid is five today! Here’s to another year of incredible outfits and lots of fun. So excited about the arrival of this new show @oprahdemics. Not mention this fantastic animation that the folks at @radiotopia cooked up. Kellie and Leah are having fun, being brilliant, and finally treating Oprah Winfrey like the cultural and societal force that she is. The first season is 15 episodes, and will cover everything from diet shows to Tyler Perry to the remarkable episode in which Oprah took her show to LA during the Rodney King uprising. Shoutout to everyone who has helped make this show -- now it's your turn! Take a listen, share this post, spread the word, let us know what you think. Thanks again. Brooklyn jumble.
