Episode #5×29: Impeachment Debate, GOP Moves to Ban Addictive Apps, YouTuber Revenue Strategies

  • #Millennial is here, and unlike Moscow Mitch, we have more to offer than #thoughtsandprayers.
  • A majority of House Democrats have decided that 10 counts of obstruction of justice, attempted collusion, racism, and sexism might be good reasons to support an impeachment inquiry.
  • The panel is split on impeachment, and we dive into the pros and cons we see playing out for each scenario.
  • On the lighter side, the GOP has introduced a bill banning “addictive” social media features (like endless scrolling).
  • Are social media apps the modern day cigarettes? We talk about our own addictions to these apps and suggest other things legislators could do to curb the addiction.
  • #Millennial Gaming Correspondent Marc is back to talk about Evo 2019 and the future of competitive gaming.
  • “I made $3 million playing in this Fortnite tourney, how much does your job pay, bish?”
  • In some weird as fuck news, a vlogging family is selling a doll replica of their NEWBORN SON.
  • Is it ethical to turn your children into viral sensations when they’re too young to make that call for themselves?
  • In the Mailbag, we talk libraries, best video games for newbies, and abortion.
  • This week’s recommendations run the gamut: Splitwise (Andrew), the final season of Orange Is The New Block (Pam), HBO’s Chernobyl (Laura), and Betrayal at House on the Hill (Marc).

And in this week’s installment of After Dark:
  • 22% of Millennials report not having any friends, and 30% report feeling chronic loneliness. What gives?
  • Some vulnerability goes around the panel as we open up about the times in life where we’ve felt friendless and lonely. How did we cope?
  • How does the internet factor into this discussion? For some, it increases feelings of isolation. For others, it creates a greater sense of connectedness.
  • New After Dark segment: Laura’s TMI corner.
