Episode #6×01: New Year New Us, If War Is Imminent, Golden Globes, Rise of Skywalker

Welcome back to #Millennial, where the adulting is pretend and the talk is real!

  • Is that a new theme song we hear? And a new tagline? We’ve been hard at work putting together some fun changes for our 6th season, and we can’t wait to share them.
  • Speaking of being hard at work during the winter holidays, the President opened the world up to a US-Iran military conflict, and climate change deniers are literally down to let the world burn.
  • We react to Trump’s airstrike against Qassem Soleimani and discuss how this may further complicate the 2020 election. Somehow Laura keeps calling Soleimani “salami.”
  • As the 9/11 generation, we clearly remember the last prolonged military conflict a Republican President lied the US into. We’re getting too old for this shit.
  • Speaking of politics, Ricky Gervais called for the Hollywood elite to steer clear of the topic in their acceptance speeches during this year’s Golden Globes. It didn’t work.
  • We react to the winners of the major Golden Globes categories, and spend some time pondering the awards season in general.
  • Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker: A spoiler-free review.
  • Andrew asks us to hold his feet to the fire when setting a particular 2020 goal.
  • Our new year recommendations will make you feel good and get off to 2020 on the right foot! Write the narrative of your decade for yourself (Laura), ‘Anne With An E’ on Netflix (Pam), and Amazon’s ‘The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel’ season 3 (Andrew).
