That’s right. This is a “Freebird” show. This week, it’s just Jeff and Varg and Varg’s hourglass. We set out on a mission to only talk for one hour this week and… almost… make it work. Turns out there was a lot to cover and we barely got to any of it. Mostly what we do is look back at the Superbowl (Hey did you hear the Falcons blew a 25 point lead?) and then look forward to Mardi Gras.
Do you feel extra pressure to have a good Mardi Gras this year? Is The Time Of Trump liable to make it less fun? What about the NBA All Star Game? And, of course, there is always the #KreweOfChad problem. Jeff thinks he has some advice. Varg has some slightly different advice. It gets weirdly philosophical. Anyway, here are some items that get referenced along the way.Kevin Allman’s review of Krewe Du Vieux for Gambit. Maria Hengeveld on the contradictions in Nike’s “Girl Effect” ad campaign. Ursula K. Le Guin’s The Ones Who Walk Away From Omelas
