    Once the Thanksgiving table is cleared, it’s shopping season. Black Friday may look a bit different this year, but it still kicks off a crucial period for online and real-world retailers as they try to end 2020 on a high note.

    This week we’re stepping back from the news and looking at what makes the holiday shopping season so important in 2020 in particular, how marketers are making their sales pitch and why so much is on the line for small businesses.

    Anne Roggeveen, professor of retailing and marketing, Babson College

    Jordyn Holman, retail reporter, Bloomberg News

    Kalyn Chandler Johnson, owner, “Effie’s Paper, Stationery and Whatnot”

    A dangerous collision between a pandemic and America’s biggest family gettogether is just around the corner.

    Before we get to the main course, we’ve got an update on the presidential transition between President Trump and President-Elect Joe Biden (1:08). Quick Skimm: nothing’s really happened so far. We’ll also tell you about Amazon’s big move this week into the world of prescription drugs (7:50).

    Finally, if you find yourself having to be Top Chef at your holiday dinner this year, we’ve got you covered (22:06). Cue: a smaller feast… but the same well-deserved nap.

    Last Call: Election Day Expectations

    Last Call: Election Day Expectations

    Up first, we’ve got the latest on three developing stories from this week. Including: Amy Coney Barrett officially joining the Supreme Court, a new study on COVID-19 antibodies, and why tech CEOs faced a grilling on Capitol Hill. 

    And for our main story, you’ve probably seen headlines that, by the end of election night, we might not know who won the presidential race. To prepare you for the different possible election and post-election scenarios, we created a roadmap of different options. Named after…cocktails. Meet: the Old Fashioned, the Spiked Seltzer, and the Long Island Iced Tea. We’ll speak to election experts about how these different scenarios could play out. 

    Then, we’ve got some tips on how to help some of the older folks in your life cast their ballots safely. 

    And finally, we’ve got some ideas for this weekend’s (politics optional!) movie night. 

    On this episode, you’ll hear from: 


    Elaine Kamarck, senior fellow in governance studies, Brookings Institution

    Mary McCord, legal director, Institute for Constitutional Advocacy and Protection, Georgetown University
