The episode may be about being second string, but this recap is starter material all the way! The crew goes all ‘Murder She Wrote’ and pieces together another discrepancy between filming and airing, figuring out that this episode is probably much closer to the pilot than you’d think. Rider remembers a push-up problem, Will has chicken issues and Danielle remembers the time her little brother ruined a trip to Disneyland. Plus, what line from this episode was so memorable that the cast repeated it behind the scenes for over 7 years!? You’ll need to think fast - even faster than Feeny’s AMC Gremlin!See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

Marla Sokoloff Meets World

2022-09-2601:12:152

Marla Sokoloff is best known for her successful career on TV shows like Full House, Friends and The Practice, but before all that - she was “Paige” (and almost Topanga) on Boy Meets World.  The delightful actress stops by to talk to the gang about her prolific TGIF legacy, life at the Oakwoods and her memories of the infamous Topanga switch. And they also dig deep into the psyche of the child actor, and the pressure that comes with auditioning.  There’s a whole lot of ‘90s in this week’s interview, so bust out the scrunchies and capri pants because we’re time traveling.See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.
Critic / writer Starlee Kine (NPR, “Search Party”) joins the cast to define the role of comfort TV in our lives, all while dissecting quite a scandalous episode. Amy might be cheating on Alan, but the true mystery lies in Feeny’s puzzling (and kinda dumb) math equation! You may want to have your Casio calculator watch handy… There’s some great BTS secrets (which scene made the guys break?) and the group ponders the bleak future of the American sitcom. Plus, find out what classic TV moments scarred each of them forever!See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.
Barbie Block and Sally Stiner were the storied casting directors for Boy Meets World and now they’re revealing how the Matthews family, and so many more of their classic TV shows, came together!  They’ll talk auditions, missed opportunities and even their side of the infamous replacement of Topanga. Plus, there’s plenty of amazing tips for aspiring actors AND some incredible stories about some of Hollywood’s A-lister beginnings. We heard tidbits about Will Smith, Taylor Lautner, Reese Witherspoon, Adam Scott, Brittany Murphy, Leonardo DiCaprio and much, much more! This episode goes behind the scenes…of what goes on behind the scenes! Let’s go deeper!!See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.
Go ahead and separate the marshmallows out of your cereal because this episode is sweet! The gang is joined once again by Trina McGee to breakdown an episode written by a young Bill Lawrence, years before his success as the creator of Scrubs and Ted Lasso. The father/son softball game becomes more of a father/son battle and Topanga takes on Cory in the great Pledge debate. This one is loaded with some hella cool BTS details you need to hear, including why rewatching it left a bad taste in everyone’s mouths (Hint: It’s not because of Minkus’ tainted hamburger). See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.
Trina McGee Meets World

Trina McGee Meets World

2022-09-1201:24:565

Trina McGee, aka the beloved Angela Moore, joins the gang for the highly requested reunion of unpacking that Pod Meets World is known for. These 4 friends have been through a lot and are living proof that open communication is key. Order up a couple of Double Chubbies with cheese because this episode is ready to heal.See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.
In this episode Shawn's dad gets laid off at Christmas time, starting the oh-so-emo, and long lasting, narrative that Shawn is poor. Cory vows to get Shawn a present, but that act of kindness proves harder than it sounds. It’s certainly a BMW moment we’ve remembered for decades…except for Rider who for some reason can’t remember this episode AT ALL. Will overheard something on set that changed his acting strategy forever and we do some ‘90s trivia that the hosts may or may not know. It’s fitting that this is a Christmas BMW episode because it's the gift that keeps on giving.See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

Lance Bass Meets World

Lance Bass Meets World

2022-08-2901:00:243

There’s nothing like young love - especially when one of you is a TV icon, and the other is in the biggest boy band of the ‘90s.  We're welcoming Danielle’s ex-bf, NSYNC’s Lance Bass, to relive their relationship and a very “special” Prom night. You read that right, they went to Prom together with matching teased hair. They dated for a year and she thought it was ‘gonna be her’ until (spoiler alert) he said Bye Bye Bye via telephone (mostly likely a flip phone).  And now - they’re still close friends - and (EXCLUSIVE!) turning that Prom into a movie. Put on a tux and boutonnière, because you don’t want to miss this reunion!See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

AND BEHOLD THE MEAT FEENY!!!  Looking back is sometimes hard, but not when it involves an episode of BMW! Get in there…See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.
We are back for Part 2 with The Wrong Missy’s Lauren Lapkus, now tackling the second half of “Grandma was a Rolling Stone.” The group recognizes Will’s comfort and his newfound appetite for laughs - even if his first came when the cameras weren’t rolling. Speaking of firsts for Will…he details his first on screen kiss with Felicity herself - Kerri Russell! Of course she wasn’t Felicity yet, but she still gave Will some pointers anyway. And her hair! Geez!!! This leads the gang into detailing just how weird TV kissing is, a practice we all know we’ll soon be talking about every week.

Call some professional movers because there was so much to unpack in this episode…part 2 comes out next!!See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.
Shawn may have finally found the spotlight, but Will reveals why it’s so hard to watch himself on screen and Danielle explains her issues with acting in a jacket. Which only begs the question…”Holk-um?” There’s plenty of BTS talk from Cory pretending to be smart and the actors not being able to call in sick even when they really were. And the gang notices a joke that went over their heads all these years until they finally noticed it in the rewatch! You’ll need to listen to find out what it was and if you missed it too… Plus, Danielle reveals the wrath of her mother when she got caught smoking on the studio lot at 15.  You’ll have a lot of free time since you’re grounded and not going to the school dance - so listen to this week’s exploration NOW!See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.
Marty York meets World

Marty York meets World

2022-08-0159:182

You fell in love him as “Yeah Yeah” McClennan from The Sandlot…but did you know he was a tenant of the “Death Chair” on Boy Meets World Season 1? Marty York, aka Larry, takes us back to the beginning, and his first role with the legendary John Candy, who gave him a surprise new use for toilet paper. In addition to revealing their first commercials, Marty and the gang theorize why he was never asked back to BMW after only a handful of episodes. And in an emotional turn, Marty recalls a horrific accident that almost took his life and made him step away from acting for over a decade… All this, and more, on the most muscular Pod Meets World yet!See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.
That's not my name! That's not my name! Would Minkus mean as much to you if his name was Stuart Lempke??? Rider's got some serious BTS on a name change you never knew about. Speaking of BTS, the final scene in this episode is ultimately how Will Friedle became Eric Matthews, and you won’t believe the process he went through to land the role. Will, Rider and Danielle reminisce about seeing Aerosmith live together, but being too young to see the actual concert. And Danielle gets emotional as she re-watches a scene with Feeny and Cory 30 years later.All that and more *OPTICAL FLIP* on this episode!See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.
