It’s been a big week, and lots of things have happened — so it’s no surprise that Melinda and I didn’t agree on everything. Well, the big things. But not everything. Here’s the rundown of the stuff we liked (and didn’t) and the latest in music, TV, pop culture and movies. Listen in!

:25 We talk about the SCOTUS decision shooting down Prop. 8, and Macklemore and Ryan Lewis’ “Same Love,” plus what that means to music. While we can agree on the Supreme Court decision, we’re not so in tune on the song. 

7:05 We discuss the Paula Deen scandal — and aren’t exactly on the same page. 

11:00 Melinda discusses Mariah Carey pushing back her new album and why that may be a bad thing.

13:30 We discuss the rumor about Carrie Fisher and Mark Hamill getting fit for “Star Wars VII,” and we agree we’d totally take their places.

17:25 We talk about the new TLC show “Crown Chasers” and why it may be a car accident we have to watch. 

20:50 Melinda wonders whether Kanye West’s career can be saved, and I blame “Yeezus”‘ underperformance on Kim Kardashian.

24:30 We discuss the people who thought “Whodunnit?” was actually killing people, and why that may not have been as dumb as it seemed.
