About the Team

Andrew Sims (Host, Producer) began podcasting when he founded MuggleCast in 2005. Andrew offers Patreon and Podcast consulting, as well as podcast editing out of his home in Las Vegas. Outside of work Andrew obsesses over Potter, Springsteen, dogs, and nature.

Laura Tee (Host, Producer) was bitten by the podcasting bug in 2006 when she first joined MuggleCast. Podcasting stuck with her through living abroad in Costa Rica (pura vida, mae) and graduate school in New York City. Outside of #Millennial, Laura loves linguistics, story-based gaming, and analyzing current affairs. She lives in Atlanta with her boyfriend and adorable dog, Canela.

Pamela Gocobachi (Host, Producer) is a Bay Area native and an entertainment journalist with a deep love for all things pop culture. When she’s not writing or podcasting you can often find her obsessing over new music finds, drinking coffee like it’s her job, or doting over her dog Jasper.

Jule Gamache (Social Media Manager) has been managing social media in one form or another since 2011. In addition to #Millennial, she also runs the social media for MuggleCast and is a freelance content marketer in Los Angeles. She’s a huge fan of all things Disney, Harry Potter, superheroes, and theme parks. Be it adventure, fantasy, horror, or crime, you can usually find her obsessed with the most recent content she consumed.

Episode #6×44: Thanksgiving Plans, Trump Kinda Concedes, Movie Release Changes

Just in time for Thanksgiving: Twitter launches FLEETS, Rudy Giuliani melts on live television, and Barack Obama’s A Promised Land drops.

  • How are we all handling Thanksgiving this year? While the panel tries to plan a safe and enjoyable holiday, we’re 👀 at the people who are having large family celebrations.
  • We predict that the closest thing we’ll ever get to a concession from Trump is this tweet.
  • What does it mean if the President kinda concedes, but recounts and court challenges are still happening?
  • Trump really is tired of winning: not content with losing Georgia twice, he is requesting a third recount after the state certified its results last Friday.
  • Don’t fuck with Detroit: the tale of how a gridlock to certify Wayne County’s election results turned into a Zoombombing good time.
  • In happy news, Dr. Fauci confirms that Santa is immune to coronavirus, and can still make the rounds this year!
  • Vaccine check in – are we still feeling cautiously optimistic?

  • What to say to people who say you’re being “too safe” right now: Laura wants to say “fuck ’em,” but Huffington Post has some (perhaps) more helpful recommendations.
  • Pam reports that some California counties are now on mandatory curfew, prompting us to wonder if covid only comes out after 10 PM?

  • Arizona and Georgia showed up to the party late, but they can stay!
  • Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger has been receiving pressure from prominent Republicans to… cheat the Georgia recount.
  • An Aussie listener is perplexed by the amount of infighting in the United States, but we just can’t be cordial with white supremacists.
  • In this week’s Rona Roundup, we ask if we might be… “rounding the rona?” Dr. Fauci thinks widespread access to the vaccine is possible by April 2021, which means by summer we can (maybe) all touch each other again!
  • There’s no common thread between this week’s recommendations, so just humor us: DeleteMe (Andrew), ‘The Crown’ season 4 (Laura), and coffee mug warmers (Pam).

  • STOP. THE. COUNT. but also COUNT. THE. VOTES. Thank you to all the election workers who put themselves at risk to make sure all of our votes were counted!

  • We prank call Trump’s voter fraud reporting hotline.
  • We owe a debt of gratitude to people of color, PARTICULARLY BLACK WOMEN!
  • Millennials were disappointing in 2016, and not much better in 2020. Thankfully, Gen Z turned out to show us how it’s done.

  • In what we hope is one of the final Trumpster Fire segments, David Purdue called off his final debate with Jon Ossoff, the U.S. has surpassed 9 million coronavirus cases, Trump caravans, and the Texas GOP was smacked down when they tried to invalidate 127,000 votes in Harris County.
  • A Confessional from the generation we think are the greatest: A Gen Zer reaches out for advice on navigating the parental pressures of applying to colleges.
  • Netflix is raising prices on subscribers in the United States again, prompting us to wonder if Netflix is even our go-to streaming app anymore.
  • For some escapism this election season, we recommend episode 1 of The Mandalorian, season 2. It’s still a delightful, straight-forward, space western narrative, and we love it.
