Savannah Guthriemay be on top of every trend as a co-anchor of Today, but she has her personal preferences when it comes to what she really enjoys in her downtime.

And we wanted to know exactly what those preferences are.

So, when E! News' Sibley Scoles caught up with Guthrie at the Democratic National Convention last month, they took a break from politics—well, as much as possible anyway—and chatted about all things pop culture.

And while some of what ranks with the soon-to-be mother of two was about as current as it gets (Hamilton soundtrack, FTW—and the shower!), Guthrie's favorite workout and her first-ever celebrity crush hearken back to the 1980s.

May we suggest a Stranger Things binge when she takes off for maternity leave...

Also while covering the DNC for NBC News, Guthrie interviewed President Barack Obamaahead of his big speech touting 2016 Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton, 12 years to the day after he gave the 2004 DNC speech that launched him into the greater public consciousness.

"That was the first time people in politics were saying, 'Could that guy be president?'" she recalled to E! News.

Then it may have been time for Guthrie to grab a catnap, her schedule at the time being never to bed, early to rise.

"I'm up early with the Today show, and then I'm doing prime-time on NBC which starts at 10, so yeah, it's up all night, up early in the morning, sleep in the middle of the day," she explained.

We would have understood if every winner of her POPular Vote had been "sleep"! Catch her picks in the video above, and don't miss more with Savannah Guthrie tonight on E! News at 7 and 11 p.m.

(E! News and NBC are both members of the NBCUniversal family.)
