8: Tipping Culture, Do We Like The New Vaccine?, Voter Suppression, Pandering At The Golden Globes
This week we discovered each of us has a catch-phrase?! Listen to find out what they are! Is tipping culture out of control? How do we handle situations where it's unclear whether tipping is appropriate? Andrew shares a recent story. With Johnson & Johnson's vaccine receiving emergency FDA approval, conversations abound about vaccine preferences. Do we have one? Andrew considers a pilgrimage to Gila County, Arizona for a shot at the vaccine. San Diego Comic Con has already canceled its in-person July convention, but will host an in-person event in November. Will we be over the trauma of mandated isolation by then? Laura issues a Cuomo correction, but Gov. Cuomo is still in some shit. A Georgia Tale: Battleground State, Voter Suppression Fuckery. We detail how Georgia Republicans have been for expanding easy access to voting, until they decided they didn't like the way people were voting. A new Equality Act has passed the U.S. House of Representatives, and would enshrine nondiscrimination practices into law for sexual orientation and gender identity (no one tell #jkr). United States Postal Service vehicles are getting an upgrade, prompting many to wonder: are they derpy or cute? Paramount+ has unveiled its upcoming slate of programs... and they. are. all. revivals. or. spinoffs. Pam reminds us that progress can be frustratingly slow in light of the 2021 Golden Globes. Lady Gaga's dog walker might need a raise after being shot when defending her pups from a dog napper. Do we think the thief knew they were Gaga's dogs? We're all over the board with this week's recommendations: Toaster oven air fryers (Andrew), HBO's 'Allen v Farrow' (Laura), and 'Ma Rainey's Black Bottom' (Pam).

What's our code behind having (or not having) tattoos? ...and more!
