This is just a small taste of the show overall, the bits and bobs that I found interesting, funny, insightful and relevant. To hear everything that happened, check out the podcast of today's show. However, if you're looking for a quick read along with random self inserts and my personal thoughts, you've come to the right place.

Call in Point:

(This is the broadstroke canvas on which I base my call, obviously these notes are going to be longer and more detailed)

Oh hell snow, it's finally here. Sure, it was like 70 degrees last week and now snowmageddon is threatening to ruin our lives forever. Yeah, you should know by now that we only have two seasons: Pre Winter and Snowmageddon. Anyway, today is essentially the first of many hellish days until like April but not only because of the snow (and this secondary reason is worse than the snow honestly.) It's Tuesday which means that there are people actually in the iHeart building (Thursday is the other day people actually come in.) Keep in mind that most of these are traffic people so them getting snow to factor into their job and they're going nuts. Another set of people going nuts are the salt truck guys, who were out in full force this morning. No one felt the brunt of this morning than Angi who was aSALTed by twenty trucks on her way into work this morning. Sure, there was no snow on the ground at 3 A.M. but this was a preemptive measure to keep people from crashing while Abe played a clip from "March of the Pigs." While at a red light, the twenty truck fleet flew by in a razor thin margin and proceeded to lob tons of salt at Angi and her black car. She explained that the car now looks like a black and white cookie but she can't be too upset. After all, we are the number 1 station for salters and Angi does like a big truck plowing through her street, making room so it can fit and drop its load all over the road. Of course, there is also the flip side in that Angi had to complain that snow is actually here because when it finally started at 3:40 A.M., she was immediately sick of looking at it after a minute. Another person over the snow is Panterica, whose excursion from Joliet to work took 90 minutes this morning. Not to feel left out, Abe is also disgusted by the idea of snow. My thoughts on all of this, F everything! Just hibernate and work from home until like May, it's not like your boss shouldn't be used to it as is from the last few years. If I'm needed, I'll be hibernating in my cave with my stockpile of Captain White.

Other Stuff from Today's Show

Right then, upwards and onwards to our daily discussion topic, which thankfully does not involve the snow. Instead, we're digging into the shade bin to talk about our friends and how much they suck (at certain endeavors.) This was kicked off by Angi who had a friend of 25 years send her a podcast that she decided to start doing. Yes, a podcast, that thing everyone has and each of them think they are amazing at. Here's the thing though, the podcast that Angi's friend is doing really sucks but Angi can't tell her that. I mean, sure she's on the radio dragging her friend and telling the audience but apparently the friend doesn't listen to the show (some friend!) To further help showcase that she doesn't want to name a name but at the same time totally sell them out by explaining that the friend has a CBD business and this is a marketing podcast. The reason this incident came about in the first place was because Angi's friend (soon to be enemy) came to her saying that they are in the same business and so she trusted her opinion. Uh oh, that was not the thing she should have said because Angi completely took offense to her saying that. To quote Angi directly, "no bitch, they're not the same." Angi didn't indicate if she gave her fake feedback but the real feedback would go something like this. "Your levels are just bad and I can hear the feedback." In other words, your podcast sucks and you are incredibly bad at it so give up the ghost Mary (not her name, just a placeholder.) That's just how it is though, we all have friends who suck at something and you can't bring yourself to tell them they're bad. Some think they're an amazing singer, some think they rule at video games (I know those guys.) Turning the floor to Abe, he knows someone who makes things out of wood and they are trash. His garbage Pinewood Derby trophy looks better than something this friend has worked on for three days. I have a friend who is a streamer/podcaster and it's just, it's not good. I also know another person who has a slew of podcasts including various family members and they just need to be told to stop. Now that we've thrown our people under the bus, let's check the Request Line to see what the roadies had to say. Alyssa has a go friend who is newly divorced and doing stand up comedy. The joke though is that she's just going on stage and bitching about her ex husband. It's not funny or interesting and someone needs to heckle her into never doing it again. Jesus knows a guy who loves to sing to himself and now thinks he's a songwriter. The reality is that he's actually trash. Brandon called to drag himself by explaining he makes his own beer and wine. He wouldn't buy it from a store but no one tells him it's bad (take the hint.) It gets you drunk and tastes like alcohol which is fine if you're an alcoholic like Angi and I but not great for most others. Angi told him to bring the beer and wine to Thanksgiving and just rip the bandaid off by using it to get the family sick.

So, it looks like we're circling back to the snow because well, that was the story of the morning. For those wondering why we're dipping back into the bag of white mess, Angi wanted to talk about the real heroes of today. No, not the plow and salt guys. Definitely not the city workers who are out and about making sure broken things are fixed. We are talking about the delivery people (though excluding food delivery people in this one.) Instead we mean package handlers (giggity) like Amazon and UPS. That's right, having things sent to the house so we don't have to leave in a blizzard, sunny day, rain storm, etc has become absolutely commonplace and essential. However, we are not appreciating the fact that these people deliver our stuff but instead how hot they are. That's right, this is all about getting thirsty over our drivers by showcasing what a survey said were the hottest couriers. Abe knows this all too well as he has a hot UPS guy (friend) named Shorty, who is "known for his hotness." (Oh, you thought we forgot Gay Tuesday, pour yourself a shot.) Apparently women (and Abe) answer the door holding a laundry basket and offer him lemonade all the time. You would assume with him just saying this that his choice for the hottest courier would be UPS but he chose FedEx instead (the way his brain works I swear.) In fact, FedEx is number 3, behind Amazon at 1 and UPS coming in at 2. Rounding out the list is DHL at 4 and the disgusting USPS at 5. A discussion ensued about the uniforms of these workers and honestly, that alone should make UPS number 1. That brown truck pulls up and you get a guy (or gal) in those Magic Johnson shorts (aka nuthuggers) showing that thigh meat. In the defense of things, we had no idea that Amazon workers have a uniform and DHL drivers look like a Formula 1 pit crew so UPS wins by default. Of course this all goes against 37% of people saying Amazon has the hottest outfits. As for actual banging, 37% also want to bang inside an Amazon or UPS truck. The UPS truck is assumed to be the best for banging since there's so much space. The talk then turned to Trashman Tim and garbage trucks. Banging in a garbage truck is something Angi is open to if the driver is hot but she will not get in the compactor with the rats and dead bodies. Trashman Tim has apparently banged in one and pooped in there as well (hopefully not at the same time.) Lastly, 18% say they have kissed a delivery driver. This was followed up with Abe explaining how he seduces the driver by offering them lemonade and telling them to take their shirt off.

Finally, it's a celebration day even though the milestone is awful. As of today, there are now 8 billion people on this dying rock. Sure, 198 of them are good but apparently no one wanted to try out the gel vasectomy from yesterday's show. This disgusting milestone is all the more horrific when you consider that just in 2011, there were only 7 billion people. Factor in covid and you basically got a covid baby boom. Fun fact, the first billion was reached in 1804 and that really tells you that they clearly didn't have hook up apps back in the day. The average life expectancy is currently 73 which is great but at the same time, when I consider how old all of us are on this show, is less great. This is most pressing for Angi, who we've decided is going to be shipped to a home in about five years. Sure, Abe and I will visit her at first, bringing her boxed water and peonies but after five minutes we'll get bored and leave. Let's be realistic, no one wants to watch Below Deck with her as it is now, could you imagine in five years? One person that thinks this is all great though is social media mogul Elon Musk, who says we need to make more people. After all, someone needs to care for all the Angi Taylor's in the world and the young need to gradually push the old up and out (into a coffin.)

Request Wars 2.0

Champion: Angi (Streak: 2)

Angi's (repping Reggie) Song Choice: "Runaway" by Bon Jovi

Abe's (repping Jason) Song Choice: "March of the Pigs" by Nine Inch Nails

Smack Talk Recap:

Since Jason knew it was going to snow, he wanted to rock hard and feel good. Reggie too wanted to return to a simpler time when there was no snow. The discussion turned to Phil X stealing Richie Sambora's spot in Bon Jovi. Richie though got Orianthi who he probably has guitar battles with. They explained why Richie got thrown out of the band and the need to get Orianthi in the band now. Also, Trent Reznor doesn't need anyone in his band, he does everything.

Winner: Angi

10 O'Clock Toast

Rats.

They get into music and they jam out to it. "Beat It" and "Another One Bites the Dust" are their favorite songs.
