WITW Short 13 – All Aboot Storms & Disease

Portia said December 1st, but she doesn’t know what she’s doing. Lockdown, am I right? This week we learn all aboot how tropical storms and diseases are named. We also discuss the origins of “aboot” and receive a quick reminder that AIRBUD IS A GOLDEN RETRIEVER AND WE WILL NEVER MAKE THAT ERROR AGAIN. Phew. Anyway, stay healthy, stay informed, let’s get this bread (and vaccine). 

We are also on a new hosting platform! Check us out on Anchor. We are also available to listen on Apple Podcasts, Stitcher, and Spotify.

WITW Short 10 – Privileged PJ’s

This week we talk about an absolute toe of a human who vacationed in Mexico with mommy to evade arrest and thinks he’s a Muggletonian overlord (oof). Partially joking.
