This week on the podcast, we start by recapping the HBO documentary Q: Into the Storm and discuss what we think the film could have used more of. In the news, we break down the first week of the Derek Chauvin trial, we set a new travel record during the age of Covid, Matt Gaetz is in some serious trouble, and we discuss the idea of social media being a common carrier. Then in Sportsball, we talk about Atlanta losing the All-Star Game, the Orioles sweeping the Red Sox, and the pettiness of Francisco Lindor making $1 million more than Fernando Tatis Jr.
This week on the podcast, we start off with the blocking of the Suez Canal before coming back into Los Angeles to discuss the situation with homelessness taking place in Echo Park for the past week. After that we talk about the start of the Derek Chauvin trial in the killing of George Floyd and what our thoughts are on the case going forward. We also discuss voting suprresion bills, the filibuster, and the controversy over Lil Nas X and Nike. Next, we go over the latest in covid news including fears of impending doom and Deborah Birx saying everything over 100,000 deaths was avoidable. We finish by giving a quick preview of the Orioles with opening day this Thursday.
This week on the podcast, we start in Atlanta where a gunman killed eight people: six of them Asian women. We break down the state of hate crime and gun rights legislation before talking about Joe Biden acting a little like Gerald Ford and a little like Barack Obama this week. We also talk about Kylie Jenner and the responsibility of the absurdly wealthy. In covid news, the Brazilian variant is hitting Florida harder than the thousands of Spring Breakers pouring into Miami, all while Europe is going through its third wave. We finish on the Baltimore Corner, where the house of Mosby seems to be in a lot of hot water.
This week on the podcast, Cory has an appointment to get his vaccine and the South Park Vaccination Special is speaking truth to Rob. In the news, Biden has a prime-time address announcing more eligibility for vaccines starting May 1st. In addition, Gavin Newsom gives the state of the state address and we discuss the state of the recall, and will Trump be indicted this week? We get into it. We close by talking about the Academy Award nominations and wishing Nick Markakis a happy retirement.
This week on the podcast, the $1.9 trillion American Rescue Plan passes, but the shine fades quick because the $15 minimum wage bill is hijacked by Joe Manchin and Kyrsten Sinema. In the meantime, all the right leaning media can talk about is Dr. Suess. Oprah sits down for an interview with Meghan Markle and Prince Harry that has us asking why the crown is necessary anymore. We finish by discussing the latest news in climate change, and the state of the pandemic in the wake of Texas and Mississippi's decision to fully reopen and drop mask mandates.
