Episode 50: California Dreamin’ (The Mamas & The Papas)

It’s our 50th episode and we are celebrating with our first venture into psychedelic rock and a new Patron Saint! Bethanne tells us the story of The Mamas & The Papas, which has no shortage of twists and turns and crazy surprises.

Show Notes and Images

The Mamas and The Papas were an American folk rock vocal group formed in Los Angeles, California consisting of Cass Elliot, Michelle Phillips, Denny Doherty and John Phillips (spoiler: you probably won’t like him by the end of this episode). Throughout this episode, we talk yet again about how the media has not changed in almost 60 years of talking about women.
