Episode 48: Book vs. Movie – Better Nate Than Ever

In episode 48, the Mamas are joined by everyone’s favorite uncle to celebrate Pride month and chat about Tim Federle’s middle grade character, Nate Foster, a theater lover who stars in a book series and a new Disney musical. The trio follows up the book vs.movie discussion with 6-ish adult and kid books that turned them into readers (or book nerds as Margie no-so-lovingly puts it). Johnny also spills the tea on Margie’s grad school years from a century ago. Get your hot goss here!
