Show Notes

Shelby is very concerned about the announcement of a new *Bachelor* (6:02) while Matt is entertained by the trainwreck that was men watching Ariana Grande perform at the Aretha Franklin memorial (11:05). Then there’s talk of *Guardians 3* (15:20), *First Man* versus the flag (17:00) and a sad attempt at a #NikeIsOverParty (22:48). But the real star of the show is *Searching* (27:30) as Shelby and Matt discuss what works and what doesn’t in this desktop thriller when it comes to grief, connection, and the reality of technology today. They wrap it up with a discussion on the ending so SPOILER ALERT (57:39). But listen to Love It or Hate It (1:05:41) when Matt is late to the game on HBO’s *Barry* and Shelby feels some secondhand embarrassment watching Taylor Swift’s boyfriend play a nazi in *Operation Finale*.
