A lot of traveling this past week. Carson Wentz is headed to Indianapolis and Ted Cruz couldn't resist a trip to Cancun while Texas dealt with freezing storms and rolling blackouts. This week we talk about how these trips got booked and the ramifications felt at home. We also share our thoughts on the new movie Nomadland and Netflix's most popular show, Bridgerton.
The big game is set for Sunday as Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs will be taking on Tom Brady and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. To help break down the matchup this week we brought on a Kansas City fan and a New England fan (because let's face it Tampa doesn't have any real fans and all of New England seems to be pulling for Tom). We also share our thoughts on The Little Things, One Night in Miami, and The Night Stalker.
Yes. The Pharmaceutical companies Pfizer and Moderna are leading the race to provide a vaccine to the world. Both companies announced that its vaccines are over 94.5% effective in preventing the coronavirus. How did we get two potential vaccines so effective and safe in such a quick amount of time? As we say in Philadelphia - trust the scientific process. This week we discuss that process and the technology that got us to this point and why the vaccine can and should be trusted. We also share our thoughts on the Hulu movie Run, the Lego Star Wars Holiday Special, Fisherman's Friends, and the finale of The Sopranos.
Last week, the FBI intercepted six men that were trying to kidnap Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer. She is okay, but this week we're talking about the kidnappers' potential motivations, how the FBI stopped them, and why this could happen again. We also share our thoughts on the season 2 finale of The Boys on Amazon as well Hubie Halloween and The Haunting of Bly Manor.
History was made last week in two Supreme Court cases. One affecting civil rights for gay and transgender workers and the other immigrant children. While many are celebrating these decisions there is still a lot up in the air on both issues. This week we talk about the decisions that were made, their impacts, and how the election could affect these rulings. We also discuss the Good Liar streaming on HBO, American Son, and since we're talking about DC politics we also reflect on the legacy and rewatchability of The West Wing
The Oscars have awarded their best movies of the year. Now we are doing the same. This week we are joined by friend of the show Brit Harsh to talk about our favorite movies of 2019.
Busy week. We had the bungling of the Iowa caucuses, the State of the Union Address, the end of Trump's impeachment trial, and another Democratic debate. Not to mention that New Hampshire primary is this week. This week we attempt to talk about all of that along with sharing our thoughts on Bad Boys For Life, 1917 and we do a quick recap of the Oscars.
Hosts: Zach Stone and Ryan Berger
