    The Clock is Ticking On TikTok

    The Clock is Ticking On TikTok

    President Trump signed an executive order threatening to ban TikTok in 45 days. (TikTok is like “...excuse me??”) The unemployment rate dropped in the US! Which is good! But the number of jobs added is...not ideal. “A League of Their Own” is being made into a TV show! Which is very GOOD. Kylie Jenner showed up in Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion’s new music video and the internet is feeling some type of way about it. And there’s going to be a US version of the Eurovision Song Contest next year, so place your bets on which state wins it all now!

    Everything Is “Connected,” Man

    Everything Is “Connected,” Man

    The Census Bureau is wrapping up its work earlier than it previously said and that’s, well, not great. Nor are the allegations of sexual harassment and misconduct behind the scenes on the “Ellen” show. You know what is great? Beyonce’s new visual album is what. Our producer is leaving us and we cover-up our feelings of abandonment by quizzing her. And we talk to Radiolab’s Latif Nasser about his new Netflix show, “Connected,” and how he makes science interesting AF.

Youthful and pleasant but boo buzzfeed

Randomly started listening to this podcast and I LOVE the hosts. Nice listening to fun, diverse hosts - not so common in the podcast or news world.

However I couldn’t believe the way they covered the Ellen show scandal, talking about the toxic work culture when that’s what buzzfeed is known for, treating employees like garbage. Also listened to them talk about how cool it is for Taylor Swift to finally own her own music, which was incredible to me because buzzfeed is known for stealing people’s work and not giving creators rights to their own stuff. It all lacks a certain self-awareness. 😬

Love it!

Has helped me get through the pandemic. Really fun but also surprisingly insightful news. I love that it becomes available around five and sums up the day. I love the two host’s chemistry. Thanks again for a bright spot in a hard time!

News Hound

I am a bit of an armchair news hound. This podcast is the most comfortable and enjoyable news show there is! The news casters make it feel like you are discussing the news with friends. It’s funny, fun, and very smart. It follows all the important news with sass and personal views that do not interfere with the actual news being broken down. Great job!
