The world is looking different now that COVID-19 has introduced itself to us. A lot of folks are quarantined or isolated, and there is some panic in the streets. Come sip a beer with Landon, Jacob, and Stephen as they hash out the details, provide some much needed useful wisdom, and try to stay positive in the apocalypse.
It was good to be back in the saddle at the Orbiting HQ this episode. We went a lot of places on this one and covered a lot of ground that might only be tangentially related to covid. It was a bunch of fantastic conversation though, and we even had a voicemail plus some feedback about Texas! You'll dig this one.

This episode had plenty of laughs and plenty of heavy moments as we continue to toe the line between staying depressed and trying to rise above. Every episode is a bit of a roller coaster for us. It's a show we don't want to do, because we want COVID gone, but we try to make the best of it while doing it. I hope you get that vibe from it.
Wishing you the best!

Having TVsTravis on the show is always a joy. He returned this week as our remote Michigan correspondent to give us the lowdown on the new lockdowns. Lowdown on the Lockdown...heh. We had a good time on this show. We actually laughed frequently. It might be that the plague is getting to us, or it could be that we're all just so done with it that it's turned a corner into funny. Maybe it's the vaccine. The good news is that you are sure to enjoy this one. Have fun!

Jacob and I didn't have a guest this week, but we had PLENTY of questions to answer. This week Pfizer announced that they have a vaccine that has shown 90% efficacy, setting off a lot of speculation as to when and where this pandemic might actually end. Jacob is here to level set some of our expectations and help us understand what this news really means to you and me. When can we expect it? What does 90% mean? How is distribution going to work?
As always, we're here to try to clean up the science talk and get to the root of the story. Enjoy!
This week we were joined by our good friend Coleman Ranahan! Coleman is a filmmaker, writer, and YouTube wizard. We were super happy to have him on the show and he gave us plenty of insight on where he is and how he's feeling as we all continue to muddle through this pandemic.

We didn't have a guest this week, so Jacob and I decided that it was a good week to walk back through the history of COVID a little bit. Where we've been, how far we've come, and where we haven't gained much ground at all. We also had some deep conversations on what kind of accountability really exists regarding this thing. Of course, we could go an episode without diving into a bunch of sports shenanigans! Jacob has feelings.
Let's do this!
This week on the show we had sociology professor Patrick McGrady join us to chat about how life in quarantine is working for him! We get to dive in on how things are going in the Northeast US, how comfortable he feels out and about, and whether society as a whole is going to survive this thing and will it look the same when we come out the other side. Patrick was a fantastic guest and his positive outlook sure is refreshing among all the doom and gloom we're faced with daily. Enjoy the show!

We really hammered into schools and sports on this episode. How bad is sending kids to school? Should we even bother with sports? Football or RIOT! We really let the emotions fly on this episode and I think it's a good thing. You really have to let loose every so often.
