Some business and notes for this week’s Podjiba:

First off, if you’re one of the loyal listeners who prefers your television podcasts with less actual discussion of television, this is your episode! It took us longer than normal to get into our weekly topics, and halfway through we distracted ourselves talking about a bunch of random things that are definitely unrelated to television.

Second, we’re going to be taking a couple of weeks off for reasons you might already have expected, but we plan to be back in July with more new TV and our Umbrella Academy season one re-watch (or watch, for me)!

As for this week’s episode: Dustin and Tori continue to watch The Idol on HBO, but before that Dustin briefly told us about AppleTV+’s new show The Crowded Room, I suggested Netflix’s new-ish Korean competition series Siren: Survive The Island, and we did manage to talk Top Chef without spoiling the ending, I think!

(Also mentioned: the return of It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia, Peacock’s new show Based On A True Story, and high school pranks!)

Podjiba! The weekly television podcast that has probably taken more breaks than is advisable (but always for totally legit, non-spycraft-related reasons) can be found wherever podcasts are available, including below!
