Biz and Theresa revisit their resolutions from last year and are reminded that resolutions are bullshit! Seriously. Let's resolve to talk about cake or anything else next year. Plus, Biz recovers from the holidays, Theresa reminds us of her favorite gift, and we talk to Professor of Cognitive Sciences Barbara Sarnecka about her fascinating recent study on how moral judgments affect the way we perceive risk.

It’s finally 2017, Rocketeers! Guy, Wynter, and Karen sit down to discuss their new year resolutions for pop culture. Should we be watching less Housewives and more musicals? Who is reupping their subscription to THR this year? What kind of books should we try to read this year? Plus, the gang remember George Michael, Carrie Fisher, and Debbie Reynolds.

AW HELL YEAH. It's a new season of The Bachelor, and to celebrate, we've joined forces with the Maximum Fun network. Welcome to our new listeners! Just a heads up: We don't usually talk about the elemental composition of vaginas as much as we do in this one. It's a very special occasion.
We spend half this episode coming up with a name for the new year, which is as important an endeavor as we can undergo. Yes, we boned it last year. This time, we're FEELING IT SO HARD.
Suggested talking points: THE NAMING OF THE YEAR OF OUR LORD 2017, Sriririririracha, The Fushigi Art Patronage
