Rebecca is off this week, so Andrea and Amy are joined by celebrity editor Abby West to talk about the Oscars: what went wrong, what went right, and are they still relevant? Amy’s kids watched until bedtime, even though they had barely seen any of the movies. But are most teens and tweens interested at all, or are the Oscars just not a thing for younger people?

Plus we get some info from Abby about a cause close to her heart, Be The Match. And in our Bytes of the Week, Andrea has a cautionary tale about buying Amazon Gift Cards.
