Las Vegas Sphere

2/11/2024
There's a new ridiculous thing in Las Vegas, and it's a big ball that plays videos. This week we're talking about Sphere (not the Sphere, thank you very much), the immersive event venue that makes going to a U2 concert feel like you're on drugs. We also talk about local Long Island musician Billy Joel's new song. See Privacy Policy at https://art19.com/privacy and California Privacy Notice at https://art19.com/privacy#do-not-sell-my-info.

Stanley Cup

1/21/2024
Have you heard about the water cup that everyone is losing their minds over?

2023 Year in Review

12/31/2023
Well, it's time to wave goodbye to 2023 and then turn around and wave hello to 2024.

Sesame Street

11/12/2023
This week is the 54th anniversary of the premiere of Sesame Street, a fact we didn't know when we recorded this episode.
