On this episode of Shuffle the Podcast, Cat and I welcome Shuffle’s music guru, Leigh Kettle into the studio. Leigh has been a member of the Shuffle team for some time as a writer and photographer and the site’s lead on music and event coverage.
A lot has happened since Episode 4 of Shuffle the Pod. I said goodbye to the Spooky Season by going in hard on the “Halloween” fangirling. Cat is adulting to the max by effortlessly and coolly managing her move into her new place. Ever the belle of the Austin night scene, Leigh dishes on seeing Dawes perform and her haunted adventures as the famous Driskill hotel!
As it is Leigh’s first time on Shuffle the Pod, it’s time for another round of “Inside the Shuffle Studio”. What did we learn?
- I’m still in the minority on the great Green v. Red Salsa Debate
- Leigh has embraced the Netflix life while nursing her broken femur
- There are tactical advantages to bringing a walker on a night out
Music is on our minds as we discuss Leigh’s favorite albums of the year, her own experience as a musician and songwriter, and the differences in the concert versus festival experience. Austin is the live music capital of the world, with so many musical experiences to offer and Leigh has always been right there in the middle of it (listen for the lowdown on her favorite venues, events, and performers).
The entire Shuffle team is looking forward to “Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald” and get into everything from casting Johnny Depp to Cat’s time at LeakyCon to what it’s like growing up with such an iconic franchise.
It’s a clash of the holidays as the ladies discuss their favorite holiday traditions and remark on the age of “creepy tv” and “The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina.” As October and the spooky season came to a close, “The Haunting of Hill House” was a major standout for Cat, Leigh, and myself. You do NOT want to miss this deep dive!
