What Did I Miss? is a podcast where guests introduce TV shows and movies from their childhood to a host who has never seen them before.
French Canadian expat MJ Bourque asks her guests to introduce her to the movies and TV shows of their childhood so she can catch up on the cultural references she missed out on growing up in another language.
Every episode we recap the plot of the media in question, dive into some pieces of trivia, and learn a bit more about the guests themselves.
