About this Episode

It's the Oscars episode, and this year -- with an assist once again from Joe Reid -- we're contemplating one Oscar-winning A Star Is Born song, and one presumptive winner: "Evergreen," from the Streisand ASIB; and Gaga and Cooper's "Shallow," from the 2018 ASIB. What is the sound of one lavender ribbon flapping? Where is Diane Warren's parade? And should actors win awards on the basis of a single scene? All those answers and fewer in Episode 137.

Our intro is by Andrew Byrne, and our outro is by Jeff Bridges and Colin Farrell. Want to request a song, buy a birthday chart reading, or just say hello?
