Movie of the Year
The 2023 BOTY Preview Show covers all of our upcoming Best of the Year episodes!
The year 2023 has drawn to a close. But before we can say goodbye to it forever, we need to decide what were the best media of the this remarkable year. However, 16 movies, 16 TV dramas, 16 TV comedies, 16 albums, 55 burgers, and 55 fries is way too much for us to comment on meaningfully with our trademark penetrative wits. So we are giving ourselves an opportunity to cut those 16 down to a more manageable 8 each, except for the burgers and fries.
In this episode we tackle the TV and the albums. TV is something you put on to look at your phone when you are at home; albums are what you put on to look at your phone when you are out in the world, so they make a natural pair.
We used to do this for fun. Then, it was for the entertainment. Eventually, we came to do it for ourselves.
But now? Now, we do it to destroy each other.
Abortion is healthcare
While Americans overwhelmingly support the right of an individual to make their own decisions about abortion, unfortunately, that right is no longer protected everywhere in the U.S.
The Supreme Court overturned Roe versus Wade on June 24th.
Abortion is a basic healthcare need for the millions of people who can become pregnant. Everyone should have the freedom to decide what’s best for themselves and their families, including when it comes to ending a pregnancy. This decision has dire consequences for individual health and safety, and could have harsh repercussions for other landmark decisions.
Restricting access to comprehensive reproductive care, including abortion, threatens the health and independence of all Americans. Even if you live in a state where abortion rights are upheld, access to safe medical procedures shouldn’t be determined by location, and it shouldn’t be the privilege of a small few.
