It's been a rough few weeks, but Rachel and Brian will be back next week with a brand new NOPE to bring you some laughter in these dark times.
This week, we shut down our terrible government’s bungled response to the coronavirus, hand-washing tutorials, New York’s plastic bag ban, #InternationalWomensDay and bolo ties. Also: we offer to help the Charleston Riverdogs come up with clever yet politically correct promotional events and explore the science behind durian fruit superconductors.  HEAR US ON ITUNES https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/this-week-in-nope/ OVERCAST https://overcast.fm/itunes1312654524/this-week-in-nope  SPOTIFY https://open.spotify.com/show/07WFZhd5bgY1l1BspArfRJ STITCHER https://www.stitcher.com/podcast/this-week-in-nope SOUNDCLOUD https://soundcloud.com/user-518735966/tracks POCKET CASTS https://pca.st/SrJY  RADIO PUBLIC https://radiopublic.com/this-week-in-nope-GAOx3N    In this week’s episode:  Like Larry David, we are recoiling in horror about the rise of the bolo tie, as reported in the WSJ.  Shell, the oil and gas company, decided to honor women for International Women’s Day by chaging its name to She’ll.  Big #YUPs to… Lady Gaga and her new song “Stupid Love,” released at the same time as this interesting op-ed in the New York Times.  Pan Shancu, a Chinese man who ran 31 miles in his living room while under coronavirus quarantine, proving you can do anything if you set your mind to it.
This week we shut down the Democratic debate in South Carolina, the White House’s bungled response to the coronavirus, various data breaches, Apple’s unusual rules about iPhone representation in cinema, and, finally the worst food innovation since sliced bread: sliced mayonnaise.    HEAR US ON ITUNES https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/this-week-in-nope/ OVERCAST https://overcast.fm/itunes1312654524/this-week-in-nope  SPOTIFY https://open.spotify.com/show/07WFZhd5bgY1l1BspArfRJ STITCHER https://www.stitcher.com/podcast/this-week-in-nope SOUNDCLOUD https://soundcloud.com/user-518735966/tracks POCKET CASTS https://pca.st/SrJY  RADIO PUBLIC https://radiopublic.com/this-week-in-nope-GAOx3N    In this week’s episode:  A college student is overseeing hiring at the White House personnel office.  Bloomberg created billboards touting his preference for rare steak.    Big #YUPs to… “The Circle” and “Love Is Blind,” both of which are available right now on Netflix.

This week we delve into the struggling presidential campaign of “most electable” Joe Biden; the mixed (gift) bag that was the Oscars; dueling vagina candles/incense from Gwyneth Paltrow and Erykah Badu and, finally, the return of Sean Spicer to the White House in an ill-defined and unpaid role.    HEAR US ON ITUNES https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/this-week-in-nope/ OVERCAST https://overcast.fm/itunes1312654524/this-week-in-nope  SPOTIFY https://open.spotify.com/show/07WFZhd5bgY1l1BspArfRJ STITCHER https://www.stitcher.com/podcast/this-week-in-nope SOUNDCLOUD https://soundcloud.com/user-518735966/tracks POCKET CASTS https://pca.st/SrJY  RADIO PUBLIC https://radiopublic.com/this-week-in-nope-GAOx3N    In this week’s episode:  Joe Biden put a baby’s pacifier in his mouth.  In the wake of Gwyneth Paltrow’s sold-out vagina candle, Erykah Badu plans to release vagina-scented incense.
