But Are You Quibi Bored?

EAs we enter the fourth week of lockdown, one question is on our minds: you're bored, but are you bored enough for Quibi? This week marks the debut of the much-touted Quibi streaming platform, developed for short-form entertainment. After discussing the latest in coronavirus updates, including Disney's optimistic reset for their 2020 slate, we break down Quibi's debut shows, and ponder whether or not anyone is bored enough to watch any of it.

Tiger Kinging

EThe self-quarantine continues and this week we're talking Tiger King, the latest Netflix true crime phenomenon. We also discuss Netflix's true crime domination and the ongoing and everlasting interest in true crime that we as a society have. The interest is not new but the lack of shame in that interest is, so join us as we try to understand the human impulse to consume true crime and how that intersects with increasingly exploitative narratives.
