No more pre planned topics

We’ve discussed everything 3 or for times over
We went less structured (look at us!)
We use to not talk about the show during the preshow
Were going back to our roots and discuss things on the fly, gather around the virtual watercooler
Be more off the cuff
We’re all for “joke equality”
