This week we discovered each of us has a catch-phrase?! Listen to find out what they are!
  • Is tipping culture out of control? How do we handle situations where it's unclear whether tipping is appropriate? Andrew shares a recent story.
  • With Johnson & Johnson's vaccine receiving emergency FDA approval, conversations abound about vaccine preferences. Do we have one?
  • Andrew considers a pilgrimage to Gila County, Arizona for a shot at the vaccine.
  • San Diego Comic Con has already canceled its in-person July convention, but will host an in-person event in November. Will we be over the trauma of mandated isolation by then?
  • Laura issues a Cuomo correction, but Gov. Cuomo is still in some shit.
  • A Georgia Tale: Battleground State, Voter Suppression Fuckery.
  • We detail how Georgia Republicans have been for expanding easy access to voting, until they decided they didn't like the way people were voting.
  • A new Equality Act has passed the U.S. House of Representatives, and would enshrine nondiscrimination practices into law for sexual orientation and gender identity (no one tell #jkr).
  • United States Postal Service vehicles are getting an upgrade, prompting many to wonder: are they derpy or cute?
  • Paramount+ has unveiled its upcoming slate of programs... and they. are. all. revivals. or. spinoffs.
