About This Show
Armed only with the ubiquitous power of USB headsets and mediocre production value, we will not rest until every important news story has been unearthed, turned to click-bait, and generated at least 300 pointless internet comments. Our show airs every Wednesday and unpacks the previous week’s news, both stories that made headlines and a lot of important ones that didn’t. Each episode is a mix of serious and fun, as seen through the filter of four Millennials with very different tastes, perspectives and areas of expertise.
