#223: Aunt Becky is Going to Jail

April 18th, 2019 · 68 minutes

This week, Simone is off in LA being fabulous, so Bri and Christina take over the show. After some quick follow-up to last week’s show, Christina and Bri discuss the early responses to the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Fold. Surprisingly, reviewer’s don’t hate it. Christina still says she’s not buying one. She’s probably lying. Then, they tackle the highs and lows of science. The high: we got an image of a black hole! The low: one of the scientists on the team that achieved this feat was harassed off the internet. Because the internet. Bri and Christina then segue to talk about rumors of a Microsoft Surface AirPods competitor, and chat about how they use AirPods and wireless earbuds in general. And finally, two of our favorite crooked celebrities, Lori Loughlin (Aunt Becky) and Allison Mack are back in the news and totally going to jail.
