This week’s episode is dedicated to Charlie the cat – #ForCharlie! ❤️

  • In their latest move toward world domination, Disney+ will be bringing us a Percy Jackson TV series and… *drumroll* ?Alexander Hamilton?
  • Listener feedback has us discussing when we’ll be comfortable going back to the movies, and how to deal with a job that is financially comfortable, but mentally draining.
  • President Hydroxychloroquine is peddling a new Obama conspiracy theory and thinks he lives in an episode of Star Trek.
  • Faux meat sales are up 264% since the pandemic began, and Laura has an unsettling Beyond Meat story.
  • The Quarantine Game – how many of these 25 quarantine experiences apply to you?
  • A surprise debate takes the panel by storm: is it gross not to shower daily?
  • To get a Peloton, or not to get a Peloton? (But really, who tf can afford a Peloton?)
  • Twitter is taking steps to let users know when tweets contain disputed or misleading COVID-19 information. These rules allegedly apply to world leaders, but do we believe Trump will be held accountable?
  • Instagram is also making some changes, but they’re hoping to help you fight the haters: they’ll be making it possible to delete comments and block specific accounts from commenting in bulk.
  • In honor of the start of summer, we’ve got some relaxing recommendations: ABC summer game shows (Andrew), Pitch season 1 on Hulu (Pam), and using this time to reconnect with long-lost friends (Laura).

  • We took the 16Personalities quiz and got some interesting results. One of our panel is an introvert, and the other two are extroverts. Who do you think got these results?
  • We’re all turbulent, and we dig into what that means for each of us, and how we all experience imposter syndrome.
  • Which celebrities share our personality types? Some of the results are intimidating and… odd.
  • We also determine which Harry Potter characters’ personalities match our own!
