E106: The Duct-Taped Banana Drowns in Mincemeat!
The holidays are approaching and nothing says Christmas like a nine vote working majority, a racy cocaine Santa sweater from Walmart Canada and mincemeat pie made from actual meat! Also on the docket: Brian has boots-on-the-ground reporting about the Art Basel banana; Vox investigates Bronx Colors, the manufacturer of Trump’s orange concealer; the Peloton Husband goes public about his pain, and we puzzle over the media strategy of Boris Johnson, who spent Wednesday hiding in a refrigerator.     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:  Vox investigates Bronx Colors, the (alleged) manufacturer of Donald Trump’s orange concealer.  Boris Johnson hides in a refrigerator.    Big #YUPs to… Chris Evans’s fisherman turtleneck sweater in the film “Knives Out.”  “Bombshell” the new film about the fall of Roger Ailes at Fox News.   
E105: Baby Yoda Spotted at a Jiggle Joint!
As Donald Trump fought with our allies in Europe, and Andrew Yang squirted whipped cream directly into his supporters’ mouths, we tried to remain focused on issues that are closer to home, such as the merits of silent haircuts, that terrible Peloton ad and the over-exposure of Baby Yoda. Also on the docket: why we love Hunter Biden.    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:  Watch the Peloton ad that everyone’s freaking out about.    Big #YUPs to… Rachel Maddow, who wrote the most important book of the year, “Blowout.”   Princess Anne, our finest living royal.

Here she is seemingly snubbing Donald and Melania Trump at a royal reception at Buckingham Palace this week.   
A Very Nope Thanksgiving!
Overwhelmed with Thanksgiving preparations, we decided to pardon ourselves this week from our typical podcasting duties. But we did introduce a new beta program, the #DailyNope, which kicked off with an unusual sunbathing trend–taint tanning. In the spirit of the season, we also offered gratitude to you, our listeners, and Icelandic raincoats.    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:  Read the NY Post story about “perineum sunning” the latest wellness trend that influencers swear by.    Big #YUPs to… Friends of the pod Lauren Mechling and Becky Fagin, who are celebrating birthdays this week.  Brian, who is also celebrating a birthday this week.  Our listeners in Iceland, Iran and all over the world.  Reyjkavik Raincoats, which provides a deligtful hands-free solution to being outside in the rain.
E103: The Whistleblower Haunts an AirBnb! (feat. Lindsay Goldwert)
Strung out from another insane day of impeachment hearings, we sat down with author, comedian and friend of the pod Lindsay Goldwert to get to the bottom of the real issues plaguing the American people: what happened to lounge singer-turned State Department official Mina Chang? Why are 30-50 feral hogs terrorizing Italy? How can it be that the entire state of South Dakota is on meth? Who is paying $1,000 a month for access to a dating app? Also on the docket: there’s more evidence that Rudy Giuliani might not be so great at tech. Finally, we talk to Lindsay about her forthcoming book, “Bow Down: Lessons from Dominatrixes on How to Get Everything You Want.”    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:  Here’s the latest on the Mina Chang scandal.

Follow Lindsay on Twitter here.  A restaurant in Reykjavik called Dill. Make a reservation now! The Democrats’ impeachment lawyer, Dan Goldman, who is bringing the BDE every day.  
E102: Milli Vanilli Dates a Chicken Parm Bro!
While the world was focused on impeachment, it seemed like nobody was really paying attention to the story of Mina Chang, a lounge singer from Dallas who somehow wormed her way into the upper echelons of the State Department. Meanwhile, “dopamine fasting” has overtaken Silicon Valley, where–despite all evidence to the contrary–people are allegedly too happy to function. Northwestern University’s student newspaper apologized for committing acts of journalism. Finally, “chicken parm bros” have seized control of the dating app Hinge.    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:  Here’s senior State Department official Mina Chang talking about her fake Time Magazine cover.
