Arden on General Hospital?!

Scott Benner

Sometime in August I received this heavily blurred image from a Juicebox Podcast listener named Kate Hall…

The image was a call sheet from an upcoming episode of General Hospital.

When I was young I would get home from school everyday at 2:55 pm where I would find my mom getting ready to watch GH. Mom would have a hot cup of coffee and be settling in on our ugly sofa as I arrived. One year the show had a storyline about Luke and Laura that was a cultural phenomenon. It stole the attention of everyone with a television, including me. My memory tells me that Luke and Laura had to “hit the road” to find the left-handed boy. I remember a freeze ray that threatened the city of Port Charles. For a time the show became what mom and I did for an hour after school and into the summer where we would run home from a community pool to see the show. There was even a parody song on the radio about the story. You see kids the radio was a thing that…. never mind. But I should at least explain that TV shows happened on a schedule and you had to be near a TV to see them. I digress…

Back to Kate

Kate is a writer on General Hospital (she’s actually a famous soap scribe), she is also the mother of a little girl with type 1 diabetes. And Kate, as fate would have it is a pretty big fan of the Juicebox Podcast.

And that’s how a character named, Assistant District Attorney Jennifer Arden came to be during a recent two-day story arc. ADA Arden is named for Jennifer (Jenny Smith from the Pro Tip episodes of the podcast) and Arden.

Huge thanks to Kate (who will be on the podcast next year) and to General Hospital for the years of entertainment. Here’s a 60 second video of ADA Arden in action (WITH Tristan Rodgers). That’s right, Robert Scorpio! Sorry… my inner child got jacked up there for a moment.

The only thing left is to get one of you to name a baby after me… 🤣
