Episode 64 – Inside (2021)

Inside is a discomforting and very funny field trip into the head of the comedian Bo Burnham over the course of the pandemic. It’s a musical comedy special (emphasis on musical) and the songs actually had us LOLing. The serious moments are very, very serious — even grave — and the wild tonal swings from hilarity to despair to absurdity to hope really reflect the emotional roller coaster that was 2020. Highlights: “Face Time with My Mom (Tonight),” “Welcome to the Internet,” and the sketch where he’s a Twitch user playing the video game that is his life and he makes his player cry a lot.

Episode 61 – The Chair (2021)

YES

We watched the Netflix series The Chair and of course had some strong feelings, especially given Joe’s own experiences of late in English departments of higher education institutions. We found a lot to like and a lot to completely shit on. (PS – there’s a little something special if you keep listening past the end…..).
