Episode 14 - Ellen Can't Grasp Laura's Explanation of a SCOTUS Vote and the Duggars Are Still Weird
3 days ago
After a brief discussion of the "magic" of yoga and a poor attempt at placing the original songs used for advertising jingles, Ellen and Laura get down to business. Laura breaks down the basics behind the Gill v. Whitford gerrymandering case and tries (and fails) to explain to Ellen why two liberal judges voted against having a second case on the same topic brought onto the SCOTUS docket this year. Gerrymandering = bad. She got that much. Ellen talks about the politics behind the United States and the Koreas with regard to the Olympics and how it played out at the Opening Ceremonies, and then goes on to talk about her excitement for Mass Start Speed Skating. Yet again, Laura and Ellen manage to bring the conversation back to serial killers and body disposal, this time with a tie in to Fried Green Tomatoes. Ellen does another deep dive into the news covered in People magazine by belly laughing through some nonsense tweeted by Amy Duggar. There's some discussion about the Celebrity Big Brother trailer and Omarosa warning us to be scared (not exactly earth shattering information), and general mockery about the latest gendered products on the market.
