E140: We're Packing the Supreme Court!

This week, even the Vatican was trying to be a moderating influence as Handmaid Amy Coney Barrett was confirmed to the Supreme Court. The Trump Administration tried to enlist an unusual constituency to get early doses of the Covid-19 vaccine: professional Santas. A small Alpine town in Switzerland became a coronavirus hotspot following a dangerous yodelling competition. Finally, we have some film criticism. Rachel gives Sofia Coppola’s new movie “On the Rocks” a big NOPE, while Brian offers a YUP to “Borat Subsequent Moviefilm” starring Sacha Baron Cohen and rising superstar Maria Bakalova of Bulgaria. It’s been a terrible week, but if Joe Biden and Senate Democrats can pull off an unambiguous, sweeping victory on Tuesday, next week’s episode will consist of only YUPs.
