Darlings, your hosts, full of some very rich food, a little bit of alcohol, and possibly an edible or two, sat down in their Vegas hotel room, flipped on the one mic they packed on their trip and, to their complete surprise, managed to record a podcast while watching the fountains at the Bellagio go off every 15 minutes outside. It is a Las Vegas miracle. It was also kind of fun. We chatted a little bit about our first time in Sin City, but if you want to see the visuals (like the pic Lorenzo snapped of Vegas Vic above), you should check out our Instagram.
But it’s not all fun and games here at PSO International Communications, LLC. As the name says, we have some opinions to throw out you regarding the week’s events in pop culture. First, you didn’t really think we were going to let the unveiling of the Diana statue go by unremarked upon, did you? Silly kittens. We talk about the aesthetics of the statue and how we think the two princes may have missed the mark in choosing a design that limits the Princess of Wales in some ways.
Then, we give a shoutout to the history-making win of Miss Nevada Kataluna Enriquez and talk about why her win matters for trans representation and how you should avoid singling her out for somehow being different from her competitors in a competition that’s purely about presenting feminine beauty ideals, which she embodies perfectly.
And finally, because several readers have told us recently that their husbands follow us for our nerdy content, Lorenzo cedes the mic to Tom so he can geek out a little over the latest episode of Loki and how it may represent some of the most sophisticated writing the MCU has ever boasted, and als0 give his review of the surprisingly light and occasionally very funny Black Widow.
And we only had to record the opening banter like three times before we got it right! Tom literally cannot say the usual intro if he’s not sitting at our dining room table and Lorenzo accidentally said something (very funny) that had us both going wide-eyed before cutting the mic and realizing we couldn’t put that little joke out into the world. It’s a loosey-goosey PSO, darlings! And thank you once again for taking the time to listen.
