Once the most sought-after player in the league, Deshaun Watson is now facing 22 civil lawsuits filed by massage therapists who have accused him of sexual misconduct during sessions.

Two big fights happened last week. In one, a slimy lizard faced off against an American Titan and the other was Godzilla vs Kong. This week we discuss the DOJ investigation into Matt Gaetz violating federal sex trafficking laws. We also share our thoughts on the latest HBO MAX release as well as Murder Among the Mormons and Pieces of a Woman.
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.
Last week the internet decided that Mario was the greatest video game character of all time. This week we try and assemble a team of the five best characters to come from our favorite consoles. Who will prevail? Listen and tell us who you think has the best squad. We also share our thoughts on I Care A Lot and the HBO MAX series Love Life.
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.
Award season is back! Last week the Hollywood Foreign Press came out with their nominations for the Golden Globes and there was a collective scream from the internet upon seeing who they chose to celebrate and who they chose to leave out. This week we break down the snubs and surprises to come out of the Golden Globe nominations. We also share our thoughts on In and Of Itself, Malcolm and Marie, Ted Lasso, and Palmer.
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.
Last week the United States was attacked by a mob goaded on by Donald Trump. Walls were scaled, windows were broken, and the Capitol was taken for the first time since the War of 1812. How does the country move on from this moment? This week they talk about all the signs leading up to the event and what (if anything) can and should be done about this dark stain on the country's history.
They also share our thoughts on Pixar's new movie Soul and Ma Rainey's Black Bottom.
It's the week between Christmas and New Years where time ceases to exist. So this week Zach was once again joined by the official wife of the pod to not only discuss The Prom and Normal People but to talk about what has been going on in their life and share a big life announcement.
