In Episode 55, we talk about the passing of Russi Taylor, the voice of Minnie Mouse, and discuss “Avengers: Endgame” passing “Avatar” to become the highest grossing movie of all time.



In the Premiere Topic, we are looking at the career of Leonardo DiCaprio (AKA Maureen’s favorite actor of all time). Inspired by the article “‘His Brand Is Excellence’: How Leonardo DiCaprio Became Hollywood's Last Movie Star” by Tatiana Siegel of “The Hollywood Reporter,” we consider our first interaction with Leo, list the best performances he has given, give our favorite movies in which he has appeared and try to determine just what it is that makes him such a bankable and reliable movie star.



PLUS, in our teasers, Josh recommends a finance podcast and Maureen recommends a throwback show that just had a recent revival on Hulu.
