Feel like you're watching less news in 2021? You probably are. News consumption is down significantly, with CNN losing almost half of its primetime viewership since Biden took office. And while you may like the feeling, newsrooms are scrambling with what to do. This week we talk to a former sports anchor and reporter from Rochester about the state of local news and he catches us up with all things Buffalo while we lament the state of the Eagles. We also share our thoughts on Promising Young Woman and Formula 1: Drive To Survive.
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.
Three years after winning the Super Bowl the Philadelphia Eagles have fired their head coach, have no offensive coordinator, no defensive coordinator, aging stars, cap issues, and an issue at quarterback after Carson Wentz got benched. Probably not where fans thought the team would be. So where does the team go from here? This week three fans talk about why the Eagles were so bad this year and if the team can be fixed or if it's time for a rebuild. We also share our thoughts on the first two episodes of 'WandaVision' on Disney+ and the first season of 'I May Destroy You' on HBO.
For three glorious days, it felt like we were back to normal. Sports were back. Sort of. And just like sports is want to do, it left some fans bitterly disappointed. This week Ryan and Zach talk about Rob Gronkowski coming out of retirement to play with Tom Brady, where the biggest names in college are playing in the NFL, and how Eagles fans feel betrayed and bewildered by their draft picks. They also share their thoughts on the Kumail Nanjiani and Dave Bautista comedy, Stuber, along with some other streaming suggestions.
Life has really changed in the past week. To do their part, Ryan and Zach are recording remotely, so while they're not in the same studio they were able to invite some friends to join the show. This week they discuss the only thing happening in the sports world - NFL Free Agency - as well as what they've been watching from home, including Frozen 2 and the Jay and Silent Bob Reboot.
We are in the middle of NFL Free Agency. This week Ryan and Zach break down all the big moves including the Antonio Brown and Odell Beckham Jr trades, and moves by the Jets, Eagles, and more. They also share their thoughts on the new movie Captive State, the Ricky Gervais series After Life, and geek out about the new Avengers: End Game trailer
