Doug and Alek are joined by Malachi “A+scribe” Carter(The Unapologetics Podcast) who shares his thoughts on Lady Gaga’s Hunger Games-esque Inauguration outfit, President Joe Biden and the Democratic Party’s lengthy track record of exploiting Black people for political gain, and why Hamilton is problematic. The trio also gush over the powerful performance and presence of National Youth Poet Laureate Amanda Gorman, and share the biggest holes in their respective cinematic repertoires.

With the help of his sister Barbara Humes, who is retired after 31 years with IAC Mendon and has been baking and catering just as long, Ralph Humes resurrected R. Stanley’s, which used to call 618 South Main Street home some 20 years ago as a dine-in and takeout spot. R. Stanley’s returned this week in the form of a pop-up diner, operating out of Venue 45 in downtown Three Rivers, making family meals to-go.

Doug and Alek are joined by I Can Marvel All Day co-host & Watershed Voice’s self-appointed director of marketing Michael “Hogey” Hogoboom. The trio talks about the Wilmington Insurrection of 1898, Green Day’s 2020 album that Hogey calls “American Idiot Part 2” but “too spicy for radio,” as well as how they plan to observe MLK Day.
