If a host turns her hair green, but no one sees it, does it still make a sound? A new oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico is trashing shit up -- and no one even knew it was happening until a random helicopter pilot was like, oh look, a rotting ecosystem. Flying is officially not the safest way to travel, because even if the plane makes it, the stress of it all will fucking end your life. President Obama went Super Saiyan on labor law this week, mandating that salaried employees making less than $47k be eligible for overtime pay. "No bueno." -Retailers Everywhere France's lower parliamentary house gets real on work-life balance laws, but we aren't quite buying their communist agenda. Congratulations to Thomas Manning of Halifax, Massachusetts on his new penis. Reports are mixed as to whether it will be detachable. Matt investigates. Tonight at 9. A round of No Context and Surprise, Bitch! introduces us to Erin, dear Erin, who deserves a Medal of Honor for her valor in the face of so much dick. And in this week's After Dark: Listeners stick it to us with a horde of both thought provoking and Rated-R questions in an Ask Me Anything-style segment. "Where's the strangest place you've had sex?" asked the listener who now has an answer she really didn't need in her life. "What's the sickest you've ever been?" asked someone else who also, now, regrets their choices.

Welcome back to #Millennial, where the adulting is pretend and the talk is real!

  • Is that a new theme song we hear? And a new tagline? We've been hard at work putting together some fun changes for our 6th season, and we can't wait to share them.
  • Speaking of being hard at work during the winter holidays, the President opened the world up to a US-Iran military conflict, and climate change deniers are literally down to let the world burn.
  • We react to Trump's airstrike against Qassem Soleimani and discuss how this may further complicate the 2020 election. Somehow Laura keeps calling Soleimani "salami."
  • As the 9/11 generation, we clearly remember the last prolonged military conflict a Republican President lied the US into. We're getting too old for this shit.
  • Speaking of politics, Ricky Gervais called for the Hollywood elite to steer clear of the topic in their acceptance speeches during this year's Golden Globes. It didn't work.
  • We react to the winners of the major Golden Globes categories, and spend some time pondering the awards season in general.
  • Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker: A spoiler-free review.
  • Andrew asks us to hold his feet to the fire when setting a particular 2020 goal.
  • Our new year recommendations will make you feel good and get off to 2020 on the right foot! Write the narrative of your decade for yourself (Laura), 'Anne With An E' on Netflix (Pam), and Amazon's 'The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel' season 3 (Andrew).
