After an almost two-month respite, the hosts are back. The only thing missing, the true star of the show, T’Challa. While he’s away at DragonCon, Barry and LaToya recount what has happened in the time away from the show. Reading. Writing. No arithmetic. And as usual, there is a lot of television watching and a Netflix series that both hosts agree that you must see!
It’s been weeks since the last episode, a trend for what feels like an unending season. Barry and T’Challa blame LaToya and she takes the opportunity to express her recent struggles with her mental health. Plus, she has a new job and is getting her first mammogram. Barry talks about the recent loss of his mother and his interest in changing his name. T’Challa lurks in the background and tells us about where he’d like to live.
My Corona! It’s the Coronavirus episode of the show as all talks turn to the pandemic. Seasons are being suspended (not ours), and industries are putting into place contingency plans. There’s even a run on toilet paper! The hosts wonder, when will the topic not be one you can joke about? LaToya is about to see her workload and income shift while Barry feels he’s superhuman and can repel the virus. Both avid soccer fans and cinephiles, they are saddened by the avalanche effect of COVID-19 and the escapism entertainment they love.
LaToya makes us start the show late because her food wasn’t delivered in time, prompting Barry to threaten to record the show without her. She tells him to go ahead, knowing he was just bluffing. Talk turns to the advances in eye care, a very expensive trip to the dentist, Barry’s nearing completion of writing another novel, movies (of course), Netflix, entertainment, and Barry’s true calling.
