Hilarious that the only popular vote Trump actually won twice is to remove him.— Jesse Case (@jessecase) January 13, 2021

Show notes - Episode 305: Delivering the Popular News
(This post was brought to you by Broad Street Bound.)
What a weird week for America. I covered some of what went down, but by the time you see this I'm sure more wacky stuff has happened. The pitfalls of recording two days ahead. Anyway, here we go with the stuff! (Photo credit)

Pat gets a late submission for your first big news story (3:29), updates his housekeeping progress (5:21), rambles on social media bans (9:12), and shares a delivery patpeeve (17:00). Plus a tune from Mascots (23:10), NFL Divisional Playoffs (27:26), a note on the Eagles (36:29), and more!
I am surprised that no one mentioned Bill Clinton's "indiscretion" when the question of news stories came up last week, but I'm glad we got to it. What a wacky time that was. (Also I'm deducting points from Blogger because their dress icon thing is not blue. That would've been perfect up there.)
Fixing things, getting safety-certified (is that a thing?), and super late deliveries - what a time to be me!
Social media bans
Get Figure It Out here (Apple Music) and follow Mascots on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Tumblr, and YouTube - and listen to my interview with them here!
The game on Nick was great and I hope they show another one on there. This slate looks good, so go teams! (Unless your team is the Bills.)
NBA and COVID
I mentioned a few weeks ago with Josh that the NBA's plan to just get back to traveling for games was going to be a mess, and boy has it been. What I'd like to know is why some teams (the Sixers) had to dress an injured player to have the required eight, while plenty of other games have been postponed. Conspiracy!
And that's that, pals! Thank you as always for joining me this week. Next week: we'll probably have a tune from shallow pools and we may hear from The Captain. Beyond that I have no idea, so join me and let's learn together. Until then, don't do anything I wouldn't do!
Crap open a cold one!
