44: Thanksgiving Plans, Trump Kinda Concedes, Movie Release Changes
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 (https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/1331013908971261953?s=20) . 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 (https://www.vox.com/2020/11/12/21562278/jails-prisons-texas-covid-19-coronavirus-crime-prisoners-death) , 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 (https://www.huffpost.com/entry/what-to-say-too-safe-coronavirus_l_5fb2f0cac5b6a46646700b2c) . 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).

Support #Millennial by supporting our sponsors! 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 (https://www.nytimes.com/2020/10/23/us/politics/iowa-kim-reynolds-face-masks.html) . 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.

Book 2, Ep.1 | Feminist Theory
Greetings Witches! We're so excited to be moving on to Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets with you! Break out your feminist reading glasses, because we're approaching this text with the tried and true (but also ever evolving) principles of feminist theory. We're returning to the origins of Witch Please and pulling from feminism's foundational texts to guide us through this second Harry Potter installment (which, by the way, contains several issues—including: parental neglect and abuse, starvation, gendered violence, violence against animals, violation of bodily autonomy, and death—so please take care of yourselves). Also, a note about feminism, women, and girls: In this episode, we'll be talking about the experiences of characters this text presents as women and girls. But when we talk about women and girls we want to make very clear that we at Witch Please have an expansive definition of what that means and are working, in our own vocabulary to find ways of talking about feminist issues without automatically centering cis women. Trans women are women. People of marginalized genders across a variety of experiences may resonate with characters presented in this text as women and girls, and we support those readings. We've received some very generous feedback from listeners as to how we can use more inclusive and affirming language around gender, and we always welcome these critiques!   See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.

About Us On HORSE, we don’t analyze wins and losses. We talk beefs, dig into Internet drama, and have fun. The NBA is now a 365-day league and it's never been more present in pop culture. From Kevin Durant's burner accounts to LeBron taking his talents anywhere to trusting the Process, the NBA is becoming a pop culture requirement. At the same time, sports can have gatekeepers that make it insular and frustrating for people who aren't die hard fans. We’re here to prove that basketball is entertaining to follow for all fans, whether you’re actively watching the games or not.
