That’s right. This is a “Freebird” show. This week, it’s just Jeff and Varg and Varg’s hourglass. We set out on a mission to only talk for one hour this week and? almost? make it work. Turns out there was a lot to cover and we barely got to any of it. Mostly what we do is look back at the Superbowl (Hey did you hear the Falcons blew a 25 point lead?) and then look forward to Mardi Gras.
Do you feel extra pressure to have a good Mardi Gras this year? Is The Time Of Trump liable to make it less fun? What about the NBA All Star Game? And, of course, there is always the #KreweOfChad problem. Jeff thinks he has some advice. Varg has some slightly different advice. It gets weirdly philosophical. Anyway, here are some items that get referenced along the way.
- Kevin Allman’s review of Krewe Du Vieux for Gambit.
- Maria Hengeveld on the contradictions in Nike’s “Girl Effect” ad campaign.
- Ursula K. Le Guin’s The Ones Who Walk Away From Omelas
