It’s the final hiatus episode before The Blaze with Lizzie and Kat returns next week with season two! Brendan Creecy and Derick Armijo, hosts of the Pop Sickles Podcast and die-hard fans of the 2008 reboot of 90210, join Lizzie and Kat to argue the merits of the newer series. Brendan is also a lover of the original Beverly Hills 90210, while Derick has only seen the new one. Listen as they unpack the craziness of teen soaps in the ‘90s versus nearly 20 years later. [Note: the four of us went straight from this recording to a book signing where we met the Queen herself: Tori Spelling!]
