Episode #8×01: Elmo v Rock is Goals, Interesting New Laws in 2022, In-Flight ‘Entertainment’: Holiday Edition

  • Welcome back! #Millennial begins its 8th season (Andrew still doesn’t like using the term “seasons” for a podcast, but too late now!)
  • What happened while we were gone? Elmo got into a fight with a rock, a new word game took over Twitter, and Betty White died EVEN THOUGH PAM TOLD US SHE’D LIVE TO SEE 2023. #SCANDAL
  • We break down the latest CDC guidance around a shortened quarantine period for those who test positive for covid.
  • In honor of the new year, we’ve got some resolutions to share… and we want to hear yours! To share your New Year’s Resolution with us, click here!
  • With a new year comes new rules: we discuss some of the new laws going into effect locally and nationally. Will Nevada eclipse Iowa and New Hampshire by leading off primary season? Will Pam get used to composting? Do kites present a danger to airplanes?
  • A chartered flight of influencers from Montreal turned into a party bus when flight crew lost control of the cabin due to the rave the passengers were having on board. A woman is caught admitting she has covid via text message as she sits on a passenger jet. Which one of us would tell on her?
  • This week’s recommendations will get your new year started off right: BBC World News (Andrew), sleep headphones (Laura), and starting a book club with a friend (Pam).

  • We talk about some of our failed new year’s resolutions over time. What do we think made us unable to complete our goals?
  • We’ve all learned there are healthier ways to set goals apart from basing them on the start of a new calendar year.
