The Re-Catch episodes 9 and 10 – Season Finale

  Welcome to the “Re-Catch” Season Finale!!!  The Happy Couple (episode 9) and The Wedding (episode 10) were put together, like peanut butter and chocolate, to make a mouthwatering conclusion.  Without further ado:  here are the “Cliffs Notes” (does it date me to say that or are we all still using them!??!

The Re-Catch: Episode 8, The Package

    Well thank GOD spring has finally sprung in New York! This means people occasionally smile and break out the shorts and sundresses. It’s a pleasure when it all slows down for a bit and we can take a deep breath. And after a long day of wandering around Central Park with a grin, […]

The Re-Catch Episode 7: The Ringer

I’ve spent much of the week reading romance novels and bingeing my way through the final season of Downton Abbey.  AMAZING.  This could be called the best and most heart wrenching week of all times.  I’m reading one romance for pleasure, one for work and watching it all on TV.  Thank God, say I, for […]

The Kardashian Kliff Notes You Didn’t Know You Needed

Whether you love them or hate them, the Kardashians are unavoidable, and to be honest, their rise to pseudo American/Armenian royalty is interesting and confusing.

The “Re-Catch” Episode 4: The Princess and the I.P.

  by Gabra Zackman I’ve spent the week wrapping up this run of Sense and Sensibility, recording an audiobook about mindfulness and bingeing episodes of “The Voice.” I’ve also injured my foot by dancing my way through this wonderful show and ergo am “limping towards the finish line.” That said, life is full of joy, […]

The Re-Catch: Junk in the Trunk (and by junk we mean bodies)

  by Gabra Zackman Welcome to Episode 3 of the ReCatch! I’ve spent this Thursday doing a podcast roundtable with one of my heroes, Jonathan Fields of The Good Life Project, and performing in this awesome downtown NY production of Sense and Sensibility.
