Former co-host Lisa Ling doubles down on her criticism of Pres. Trump using the term Chinese virus instead of COVID-19. Then, Jason Biggs and Jenny Mollen discuss how they’re managing quarantine life with their family and coping with social distancing. In Hot Topics, the co-hosts question if hugs and handshakes will survive the pandemic, whether or not they’d shame someone for not following social distancing protocols, and more.
Award-winning journalists Lisa and Laura Ling join Kate and Oliver on this week’s “Sibling Revelry.” They open up about how their childhood shaped their curiosity of the world, their incredible bond and what happened when Laura was held hostage in North Korea, and why Laura still lets Lisa have the front seat. Executive Producers: Kate Hudson, Oliver Hudson, and Sim SarnaProduced by Allison BresnickEditor: Josh WindischMusic by Mark HudsonThis show is brought to you by Cloud10 and powered by Simplecast.
