Rachel Dodes and Brian Hecht are cousins and news junkies who dissect the most abominable news of the week and shut it all down, usually over whiskey. Listen as the cousins lament the disgraceful state of the world, sometimes with the help of a notable guest. But don't despair...they always end with a Yup or two: a beacon of hope amid all the #nope.

    PSA: Sleep-Deprived Witnesses and Documents!

    We've been forced to skip this week's episode due to extreme sleep deprivation, since we've been trying to stay up to watch the impeachment trial. We hope you have too. We'll be back next week for more Nope!

    E110: Lev Parnas Eyes a Tray of Pigs in Blankets!

    Defying the orders of Yamaha, we are are broadcasting this week from inside a roomy musical instrument case. We shut down the Parnassance, Rachel Brosnahan’s Blanketgate, Megxit and Brexit. Also: Yuri Geller applies for a job as a spoon-bending British spy; we get to the bottom of an abominable new trend–Fries Boards–with potato expert Riad Bekhit of Potato Parcel; and finally, we participate in a justified schmear campaign against Bill DeBlasio for wantonly boasting about toasting a whole wheat bagel

    E109: Prince Harry Gets Handsy with Reachy!

    E109: Prince Harry Gets Handsy with Reachy!

    All is not well! This week, panting with anxiety, we attempt to turn our attention to the brilliant innovations revealed at CES in Las Vegas, like a toilet paper fetching robot and “Reachy,” a droid of unknown purpose that costs $17,000 and looks like a gondolier; Sir Rod Stewart gets slapped with a misdemeanor after trying to break into a private childrens’ party; and the Art Basel banana becomes the subject of a legal battle (or is it just part of the art?)

    E108: Lizzo Juices Pottery Barn!

    After spending the holidays relaxing and catching up on the Canadian Broadcasting Company’s edit of “Home Alone 2,” we’re back with news of a Manhattan socialite who fell through the floor while shopping at Pottery Barn, requiring an emergency manicure, the harrowing story of one writer's struggle to fend off her husbands’ sultry-voiced suitors in Gramercy Park; and a Missouri church leader who tried to pay for sex on Grindr with Arby’s gift cards.

    E107: Odd Trump Out! (feat. Jill Kargman)

    On this historic day in American history, as the House of Representatives found itself in “deep yogurt,” we were joined by Friend of Nope Jill Kargman, creator and star of Bravo’s “Odd Mom Out,” author, radio host, comedian and sorceress. We explored the plight of the impeachment Undecideds, personalized potatoes, and items from the garbage that are later resold on Amazon. Plus, we take sides in the battle between an eagle and an octopus and don't even get us started on penis fish.

    E106: The Duct-Taped Banana Drowns in Mincemeat!

    The holidays are approaching and nothing says Christmas like a nine vote working majority, a racy cocaine Santa sweater from Walmart Canada and mincemeat pie made from actual meat! Also on the docket: Brian has boots-on-the-ground reporting about the Art Basel banana; Vox investigates Bronx Colors, the manufacturer of Trump’s orange concealer; the Peloton Husband goes public about his pain, and we puzzle over the media strategy of Boris Johnson, who spent Wednesday hiding in a refrigerator.

I was already a Penzy’s customer & was THRILLED to learn of their political action. (So few companies seem to be of that political bent, unfortunately)
