The Nose On #NotMyAriel, Lil Nas X, 'Big Little Lies' Season Two, And 'The Big Little Podcast'

Jul 5, 2019

No one is surprised to hear that Disney is planning a live-action remake of The Little Mermaid. Some people were surprised, though, at the announcement that Halle Bailey, who is African American, has been cast as the titular Ariel. And probably the least surprising part of the whole thing is that part of the internet (the racist part) is mad about it.

And: Rapper Lil Nas X came out on the last day of Pride month. Is this news?

And then: We're just about halfway through the second season of HBO's Big Little Lies. Meryl Streep has joined the cast. And this week's Nose brings together all three cohosts of The Big Little Podcast.

Some other stuff that happened this week, give or take:

GUESTS:

  • Rebecca Castellani - Director of venue operations and tour marketing for We Save Music and cohost of The Big Little Podcast
  • Theresa Cramer - A writer and the editor of E Content Magazine and cohost of The Big Little Podcast
  • Carolyn Paine - An actress, comedian, and dancer; founder, director, and choreographer of CONNetic Dance; and cohost of The Big Little Podcast
