2: Andrew's Bumble Scandal, WandaVision Reactions, WTF Trump News
Play • 1 hr 2 min
The second week of 2021 wasn't... as bad? Maybe?

  • The Bumble scandal: Andrew believes his photo was stolen to make an imposter account. (Little does he know...)
  • CELEBRATE: your federal student loans will not go into repayment at the end of the month!
  • What's in Biden's $1.9 trillion covid relief package? We go over the deets, and Laura complains about the Democratic infighting already happening.
  • Not content with the amount of whataboutism that's happened so far this year, Rep. Ken Buck (R-CO) compared inflammatory comments by Robert De Niro, Kathy Griffin, and Madonna to the actual armed insurrection perpetuated by Trumpian, white supremacist terrorists.
  • WTF News makes its 2021 debut: the Trump admin lied about having vaccines in reserve, taxpayers have been paying $3,000 a month for Javanka to refuse use of bathroom facilities to their Secret Service detail, women on Bumble have been conservative catfishing to identify and turn in insurrectionists, and members of Congress may have lead "reconnaissance tours" in the days before the attack on the Capitol.
  • Who should become the new, permanent host of Jeopardy? Andrew has opinions.
  • We've got some spoiler-free thoughts on the first two episodes of WandaVision - all is not as it seems!
  • How could Marvel Studios bring Chris Evans back for more Captain America without it seeming like a cash grab?
  • We've got all the entertainment you'll need in this week's recommendations: 'Promising Young Woman' (Andrew), backyard.co (Pam), and Hunt a Killer (Laura).

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

  • We dive into a new study at Pew Research Center, which looks at the current state of online harassment.
  • With most U.S. Americans saying social media companies are doing a poor job moderating bullying on their platforms, what changes do we think might help?
  • We share the online harassment we've seen first hand, but also turn the scipt on ourselves: is it possible we've ever bullied someone online?
  • Patrons sound off and share their own stories, proving that social media is, indeed, a dumpster fire.

SBG 60: Bridgerton with Krü Maekdo
Leigh (@lshfoster) and Ellie (@elliebrigida) sit down with Krü Maekdo (@krumaekdo), founder of the Black Lesbian Archives, to talk about why Bridgerton Should’ve Been Gay. This show gives us all of the elements of what could be an epic lesbian storyline and then does not deliver on it. We all know Eloise is gay. They’re really not even trying to disguise it. Between her relationship with her “best friend” Penelope, her obsession with Lady Whistledown, and her general attitude of indifference towards men, it really couldn’t be any more apparent that Eloise is a whole baby gay. Look, she cuts her own bangs. Need we say more? We talk about “best friend” Penelope and how while she is a bit better at hiding it, she is also very much a lesbian. They even use the popular ‘brother as a stand-in love interest’ trope, but we know better. We also talk about Queen Charlotte and the convenient lack of a King; she’s totally hooking up with Lady Danbury and you can’t tell us otherwise. Follow along on Twitter: Lez Hang Out (@lezhangoutpod) and answer our Q & Gay at the end of every episode. Leigh Holmes Foster (@lshfoster) and Ellie Brigida (@elliebrigida).

James Haskell
In this episode we talk to Harry Potter fan James Haskell. Oh, and he’s also an England rugby star, reality TV contestant and podcast host.   James Haskell had a glittering rugby career before retiring from the game in 2019, but whether you’re into rugby or not James is well worth your attention.   In this episode we find out what really happened behind the scenes of that controversial season of the UK’s reality TV show ‘I’m a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here’, how seeing a sports psychologist changed the way James checks in on his friends’ mental health and why he’s training to be a digger driver at the age of 35.    James also shares what happened when he chose the Potter films for his Mastermind quiz subject, why the films remind him of his time at boarding school and what makes wizards and witches so darn cool.   James hosts three brilliant podcasts: What a Flanker, Couples Quarantine with his wife Chloe Madeley and The Good the Bad and the Rugby alongside Mike Tindall and Alex Payne.   James’ ‘3am Questions’:   Favourite book - The Harry Potter series and Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell by Susanna Clarke Favourite song - Tiny Dancer by Elton John Favourite film - Ronin starring Robert De Niro Our Sponsors: We want to thank this episode's sponsors Beer52 and Yamaha for their support.
