Lexus is (supposedly) developing a hoverboard!!! There's been a lot of debate this week about the Confederate flag. So much so that it is now impacting long canceled TV shows! Another former child star is in the news this week! Google unveils a life saving (depending on how look at it) new email option.

What is this, science class?! Well, this week, yeah!

What's new with the 2020 Olympics and what do you think SHOULD be new? Is Earth facing it's 6th (that we know of) mass extinction of species? Many scientists seem to think so. Of course, Travis is only concerned with the thoughts of one scientist: Beakman.

Thank so much all you beautiful snowflakes!

Yawn and stretch and try to come to life, it's time for another Monday Mini-sode! With both hosts in the same room for the first time!

First, thanks to everyone for sending in suggestions for Wi-Fives! It's nice to be reminded of the positivity that can exist in the world!

In a weird story this week, a dude legally changed his name to avoid paying a ridiculous airline fee to change the name on his ticket. We're not sure how we feel about this, but it eventually leads to teleporting to Boise.

Shake off those weekend cobwebs, it's time for another Monday Mini-sode!

Last week, Harry Shearer responded to a video on Youtube of an impressionist "auditioning" to fill the rolls on Simpsons that Harry Shearer is leaving behind. His response was... not great.
