I love this podcast, I've seen the series 8+ times so I remember every scene like I just watched it. Every guest has added a new perspective and funny anecdotes that have made me laugh and appreciate the show even more. I can't wait for other cast members (Adam Brody, Ben Mackenzie & Mischa Barton) to hopefully come on and share their memories!

glad you reacted to the Mischa accusations. it seems weird that nobody would have seen that side of the other actors. also the fact she said she wanted to leave the show when Rachel was added and the cast got the same pay...that sounds like Mischa was just jealous that it wasn't all about her. oh well, Summer was always better, Marisa always looked annoyed, 🙄 and huffy. love your ladies insight into the EPS 👌🏼💜
