Hello babies!

How are your New Year’s resolutions holding up? Still staying off social media? We hope so! Feeling like you need to do something? We have some tips for people in blue states/districts who don’t feel like they can do anything. On Chunch Chat, WE HAVE NEW BANCHUNCH NEWS! We have a new Banchunch pic! Martha has blessed us with a sighting of our favorite Fell pony. On Wiki of the Week, we read the page for “Telling the Bees,” a traditional European custom in which bees would be told of important events in their keepers’ lives. Bees get really mad when they’re not updated. We welcome Jack Moore, who tells us an INSANE story about his time spent as an Uber/Lyft driver. On Expert Hour, fake news expert Duane Reade joins us to discuss a very contentious and confusing topic.

The Greatest Generation Ep 108: A Big Fan of Scarcity (S5E9)

| 0 comments

When a burlap clad professor from the 26th century pulls his doorstop up to the Entrepreneur, they take a detour from rescuing an imperiled planet to fill out his questionnaires. But when he starts taking the five finger discount on all the ship’s tricorders, the previously credulous crew gets angry. Will Geordi’s tauntaun freeze before he reaches the first marker? Why couldn’t Guinan have cleared this whole thing up? Is this guy here just to do historical booty calls? It’s an episode that really asks a lot of us.

Are you sick of alternative facts? Good news! We have some "Amazing Facts" to share with you. Ross and Carrie respond to a junk-mail ad for an end times prophecy seminar, and show up to learn from the Bible, via a semi-mysterious group called Amazing Facts. What is the Beast? Who is the Antichrist? Which will end first: the world, or this lecture series?

The biggest story this week, and Executive Order created what some are calling a "Muslim Ban" and we think we should take a closer look! All that, plus the Wi-Five of the Week!
