    The Population Is On Something

    This week in Hot Off the Bench Press, meat invades Tik Tok, Planet Fitness gets in on the Peloton fun, Baby Yoda is the cutest thing in the entire world and Ashley is willing to fight you on that, Bogusky peaces out, Gen Z is skeptical while boomers love mail, and the Northern Lights save you money on Northern flights.
    Then, Sandy gets back to her favorite topics – politics – to talk about the advertising campaign behind this year’s census, and Ashley’s Six Pack Story is Coke, the Diet kind, not the drugs kind (maybe).
