44: Thanksgiving Plans, Trump Kinda Concedes, Movie Release Changes
Play • 1 hr 12 min
Just in time for Thanksgiving: Twitter launches FLEETS, Rudy Giuliani melts on live television, and Barack Obama's A Promised Land drops.

  • Taboo word of the week is back! This week's taboo word: Biden.
  • How are we all handling Thanksgiving this year? While the panel tries to plan a safe and enjoyable holiday, we're 👀 at the people who are having large family celebrations.
  • We predict that the closest thing we'll ever get to a concession from Trump is this tweet.
  • What does it mean if the President kinda concedes, but recounts and court challenges are still happening?
  • Trump really is tired of winning: not content with losing Georgia twice, he is requesting a third recount after the state certified its results last Friday.
  • Don't fuck with Detroit: the tale of how a gridlock to certify Wayne County's election results turned into a Zoombombing good time.
  • In happy news, Dr. Fauci confirms that Santa is immune to coronavirus, and can still make the rounds this year!
  • Vaccine check in - are we still feeling cautiously optimistic?
  • Laura's rage of the week: 80% of inmates in Texas county jails who died of coronavirus had not yet been convicted of a crime, and were in jail simply because they couldn't afford bail.
  • What to say to people who say you're being "too safe" right now: Laura wants to say "fuck 'em," but Huffington Post has some (perhaps) more helpful recommendations.
  • Pam reports that some California counties are now on mandatory curfew, prompting us to wonder if covid only comes out after 10 PM?
  • Universal has struck a deal with some major theatrical chains to shorten the theatrical exclusivity window, a win for everyone who prefers watching new movies from the comfort of home.
  • This week's recommendations will keep your feeds clean, your liver busy, and your Christmas lights simple: Tweetbot (Andrew), Gingerbread Murder Scene stout by Pontoon Brewing (Laura), and smart plugs (Pam).

And in this week's installment of After Dark, available on Patreon:

  • Surprise Bitch! victim Natalie fills us in on new parenthood during the pandemic, as well as what it's like to live in a state where it seems like the Governor wants everyone to die.
  • Becky reaches out to assuage Laura's fears about potentially getting away to an Airbnb for a change in scenery. Laura is still very paranoid.
  • In preparation for Thanksgiving, we share some of the cringiest stories from around the web about other peoples' dysfunctional family gatherings. May this help prepare you for seeing your own family.
  • Andrew reveals his dad's most haunting moment.

247 - Dixie, Dick, and the Bully Stick
This week, we sat down with sexual folklorist Dixie De La Tour, host of Bawdy Storytelling, to talk about the importance of storytelling, and how sharing ideas can lead to more creative kink scenarios. We also discussed the value of sharing sex-positive content when social media appears to be heading in a direction that’s sex-negative. Thanks for listening! If you enjoyed this one, you’d probably like episodes 039, 017, and 108. Check out the episode of RISK! that both Dick & Dixie appeared in! Here’s a video of Dick’s Risk! performance.
