Chicago Quiz, Dream Cities We'd Live In, Preparing Pets For The Future

Jul 21, 05:21 PM
This week's episode runs the gamut on topics, so let's dive right in, shall we?

  • Pam celebrated a socially distant birthday, and Andrew bids adieu to Chicago.
  • We pay tribute to two civil rights icons we were gutted to lose on the same day: John Lewis and C.T. Vivian.
  • As Andrew leaves Chicago, Laura and Pam quiz his Windy City knowledge.
  • Are our pets getting too attached to having us around? What can we do to ease them back into the "old normal" when we go back to work?
  • 'Rona roundup gets more ridiculous every week: White House demands case counts be reported to HHS instead of CDC, and Gov. Brian Kemp of Ga. sues Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance-Bottoms over her mask mandate. We're trying to be optimistic about a vaccine though!
  • Trumpster Fire should have been the name of Trump's Sunday interview with Chris Wallace.
  • Protesters are being swept off the streets by federal agents in unmarked vans in Portland because Trump really wants to play the tyrannical overlord.
  • In light of Andrew's move, we talk about times in our lives where we've moved somewhere, only to have it not work out. How did we process the shame and feelings of failure?
  • This week's recommendations are a grab bag: Mr. Clean Magic Erasers (Andrew), the 'March' graphic novel trilogy by John Lewis (Laura), and Trader Joe's cold brew coffee concentrate (Pam).
