Love is in the air! Valentine’s Day is a few days away and the global marketing machine is in full swing. Retailers and advertisers are spending billions trying to convince people that all they need for an epic romance are some flowers, chocolates, and diamonds. And all that is nice, but...then there’s reality. And reality in this case takes the form of the semi-controversial Netflix series Indian Matchmaking. It turns the much hyp...

Inauguration 2021. Wow. Like the song says: It’s a new dawn, it’s a new day, it’s a new life. At least that’s how it feels.

From Biden’s and Kamala’s speeches, to Amanda Gorman’s poem, to the fabulous fashion, and yes, all those Bernie memes, Sharon and Lisa discuss all the detail...

Six days into 2021, in a shocking but unsurprising turn of events, the United States experienced an attempted coup, incited by the Seditionist in Chief. Just...wow. There is much to unpack, from the possibility of the orange one being impeached again, to the spate of White House resignations, to the failure of law enforcement officials--and their possible complicity. Join us as we discuss these historic events.

2021 is barely a few days old, and it’s already setting up to be “2020, The Sequel: More Virus, Less Logic.” And so, we’re starting Season 3 with an Off-Topic episode to discuss Skylar Mack, one of the anti-masking quarantine breakers who ran afoul of the Cayman Islands authorities over the holiday season. In true COVID Karen style, Ms. Mack broke a 14-day quarantine period a mere 2 days into it. However, unlike many tourists who h...

This is the final episode of 2020, and...whew chile...we made it. The entire year felt touch and go from beginning to end.

The U.S. election is done—but far from over. In an alarming repeat of the 2016 election, Biden won the popular vote (as Hillary had), but as we all now know, it’s the electoral college votes that count towards actually securing the presidency. The race is distressingly close. Candidates need 270 electoral votes in order to win. As of this writing, Biden has 253, while the orange one has 213. In this TIS Off-Topic episode, the siste...
