    Thanksgiving Plans, Trump Kinda Concedes, Movie Release Changes

    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).

    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.

    Gift Giving During COVID, Joementum 2021, Being Cordial with Trumpublicans

    Gift Giving During COVID, Joementum 2021, Being Cordial with Trumpublicans

    As we slowly transition away from needing to worry about what the President is tweeting every day, we've got a mixed bag of stories for you this week!

    Our "Greetings from 2020" shirts have begun hitting BAE Patrons' mailboxes, and they look great! Share a pic of your shirt on social using #Greetingsfrom2020.

    RIP Trump Voter Fraud hotline, we wished you'd lived to see another day of trolling. 😢 

    Wonder Woman 1984 has Warner Bros. wondering how best to safely release a film that has already seen release delays due to covid.

    As we approach the holiday season, what to do about gift giving is on our minds. We want everyone to know it's TOTALLY OKAY to skip the presents this year.

    Andrew launches a new segment: Tragic Female Singer Contracts Updates™.

    Netflix is currently testing its new "Direct" feature in France, which would give customers the ability to view Netflix's library in a traditional, cable channel-like format.

    We're retiring Trumpster Fire 2020 and replacing it with JOEMENTUM 2021. Cue triumphant new music soundbed.

    Contrary to the fantasy going on in Donald Trump's head, Joe Biden still beat him in both the popular vote and the Electoral College.

    Arizona and Georgia showed up to the party late, but they can stay!

    Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger has been receiving pressure from prominent Republicans to... cheat the Georgia recount (https://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/brad-raffensperger-georgia-vote/2020/11/16/6b6cb2f4-283e-11eb-8fa2-06e7cbb145c0_story.html) .

    An Aussie listener is perplexed by the amount of infighting in the United States, but we just can't be cordial with white supremacists.

    In this week's Rona Roundup, we ask if we might be... "rounding the rona?" Dr. Fauci thinks widespread access to the vaccine is possible by April 2021, which means by summer we can (maybe) all touch each other again!

    There's no common thread between this week's recommendations, so just humor us: DeleteMe (Andrew), 'The Crown' season 4 (Laura), and coffee mug warmers (Pam).

    And in this week's installment of After Dark:

    "It rubs the sanitizer on its skin or else it gets phase 1 again." Are we preparing for more lockdowns?

    Because the US is... the way it is, depending on where you live in the country, you may or may not see another lockdown.

    What did we learn from earlier this year that might make hunkering down a little easier this time?

    Is it a relatively safe option to book an Airbnb for a weekend change of scenery?

    Joe Biden and Kamala Harris Win

    Joe Biden and Kamala Harris Win

    CEEEEELEBRATE GOOD TIMES... COME ON! It's been a long four years and a long election week, but we are finally here! Join us for our post-election analysis and rejoicing!

    It started with a red mirage... and ended with a very blue assist from mail-in ballots.

    How did we react to Saturday's news? Celebratory screaming and... napping?

    STOP. THE. COUNT. but also COUNT. THE. VOTES. Thank you to all the election workers who put themselves at risk to make sure all of our votes were counted!

    Trump and the GOP are still refusing to acknowledge the outcome of the election, and multiple legal avenues are being considered by Bunker Bitch to fight the will of the people.

    We prank call Trump's voter fraud reporting hotline.

    We owe a debt of gratitude to people of color, PARTICULARLY BLACK WOMEN!

    Millennials were disappointing in 2016, and not much better in 2020. Thankfully, Gen Z turned out to show us how it's done.

    Another highlight: Laura's home state of Georiga flipped BLUE!  Now, it's onto Georgia's January 5th runoff, which will determine who controls the Senate (https://www.nytimes.com/2020/11/07/us/politics/georgia-senate-runoff-explainer.html) . To learn more about the Democratic challenegers, check out their websites: Raphael Warnock (https://warnockforgeorgia.com/) and Jon Ossoff (https://electjon.com/) .

    The Biden/Harris team is already jumping into doing the work (https://twitter.com/transition46) their predescessor won't do.

    Proposition 22 passed in California, meaning that app-based transporation and delivery companies do not need to provide standard benefits to their drivers. How might this impact the rest of the country?

    Pfizer confirms that their vaccine has an effectiveness rate of 90%. NOW POKE US!

    Andrew got his first ever COVID test, and didn't cry like a baby.

    Thank you for decades of entertainment, Alex Trebek. Rest easy.

    Care for your body and soul as we decompress from this long-ass election week: Perfect Bars (Andrew), Amazon Prime's 'Truth Seekers' (Laura), and O'Keefe's working hands lotion.

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

    How did Laura find out how Alex Trebek passed away? Apparently she blacked out when Andrew texted her.

    We share some additional confessionals from our Patron Confessional Palooza, and Andrew learns the technical name for his new favorite kink.

    Trigger warning: two of the confessionals concern child sexual assault.

    What are our holiday plans as covid cases continue to soar?

    How to tell your parents you're not coming home for Christmas.

    Surviving Election Night, Superfluous Travel During COVID, Netflix Prices Rising

    Surviving Election Night, Superfluous Travel During COVID, Netflix Prices Rising

    The big day is here. Election Day 2020 has commenced - whether you've already voted or are in line to vote, we're glad you're here. If you have any questions or concerns today, please call the Voter Protection Hotline at 866-687-8683 or the Voter Assistance Line at 833-336-8683. 

    What we're doing today: drinking and deciding what kind of comfort food to have ready.

    Let's do something stupid to get us through this: the New York Times wonders if you can tell the difference between a Trump voter and a Biden voter based on the inside of their fridge. Can you (https://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2020/10/27/upshot/biden-trump-poll-quiz.html?smtyp=cur&smid=fb-nytimes&fbclid=IwAR07g11p9AS8GfRbXZABXvDj2qbl9amR92jurbRu5_skCc1bdu41sRirqO0&fbclid=IwAR0h9bnk-oUYiED3-hTMknYTgKsyoA2NLcpMpvkztxi0_LgdkY5w2pCWW-o&fbclid=IwAR35GgFKQGgWg4qzu31iWNDNhfGM_Ux_gQ3QLVM9uz5Dm9JmB4XxQn1Eqnc&fbclid=IwAR3N4wWyum3WXgSBa2ru2MpTy0NV7Pg1AABFt_EdK-hn1MCBnjh7EE76AMg) ?

    Andrew brings back Laura's Rage of the Week™ to complain about people traveling frivilously and without regard to the pandemic.

    In what we hope is one of the final Trumpster Fire segments, David Purdue called off his final debate with Jon Ossoff, the U.S. has surpassed 9 million coronavirus cases, Trump caravans, and the Texas GOP was smacked down when they tried to invalidate 127,000 votes in Harris County.

    A Confessional from the generation we think are the greatest: A Gen Zer reaches out for advice on navigating the parental pressures of applying to colleges.

    Netflix is raising prices on subscribers in the United States again, prompting us to wonder if Netflix is even our go-to streaming app anymore.

    For some escapism this election season, we recommend episode 1 of The Mandalorian, season 2. It's still a delightful, straight-forward, space western narrative, and we love it.

    Need something to do other than doomscroll this week? Check out our latest recommendations: Pikmin 3 (Andrew), Nailboo (Laura), and The Queen's Gambit on Netflix. (Pam).

    Let's keep it light with the Higher/Lower (http://www.higherlowergame.com/) game!

    Do we think people care more about sports or shih tzus?

    How many monthly searches are there for "moobs?" The answer may surprise you.

    We expose our shitty geography skills, but the Patrons are there for an assist.

    CHOCOLATE CAKE IS DEFINITELY HIGHER.

    Who's the worst Chris? Signs have pointed to Chris Pratt's affiliation with ideologies that are anti-LGBTQ, and Twitter called him out.

    Several of Pratt's Marvel co-stars spoke out in his defense, causing detractors to question where that support was when female and people of color in the MCU cast were being attacked online.

    Should celebrities be open about their politics?

    We offer our final thoughts on the 2020 Election, and share our plans for Election Night.

    Bitchy Yelp Reviews, The Hum Game, Teaching During COVID-19

    As of this episode, we have all officially voted! Do you want us to be able to change out Trump's screaming face for sunglasses Joe? Get out and vote and make it happen!

    Laura became THAT paranoid pet owner, and Pam became THAT person who forgot her mask.

    As promised, we deliver dramatic readings of our bitchy Yelp reviews. Some of us are bitchier than others. 👀

    We apologize in advance for this - we showed off our lack of vocal talent when trying to see if Google could identify the songs we were humming.

    WARNING: Don't fap during a work Zoom meeting, even if you think your camera is off.

    With covid-19 cases on the rise as predicted, pandemic fatigue (https://www.nytimes.com/2020/10/17/us/coronavirus-pandemic-fatigue.html?referringSource=articleShare) is setting in for many of us.

    Trump was a ratings LOSER (https://www.washingtonpost.com/media/2020/10/16/biden-trump-townhall-ratings/?utm_campaign=wp_main&utm_medium=social&utm_source=twitter) during the battle of the two town halls.

We think it's important to mentally prepare ourselves for the possibility that we won't know the winner on election night. Here (https://fivethirtyeight.com/features/8-tips-to-stay-sane-in-the-final-15-days-of-the-campaign/) are some tips to help stay sane this election season.

    With increased awareness of police brutality, many primetime procedural police dramas are having to assess how they'll approach current events.

My weekly highlight

I've been a listener of the hosts throughout their many podcasts, and #Millennial is no exception. They always manage to make me smile and keep me company on my bike to and from university. It is a perfect mixture of politics, pop-culture and personal stories, and I feel like I know them personally. It's absolutely worth a listen!
