Ep. 64 Political Holi-Daze

This week on the Carolina Snowflakes Podcast we’re cooking up a storm with our unique mix of political chatter and Holiday celebrations. Yes, combining politics with the holidays is akin to mixing oil and water, but if anyone can do it, we can.

First, join us as we check in with former Chief of Staff (and our former congressman), Mark Meadows. The guy is in deep doo with Congress, the DOJ and even former President Trump -- and we’re here for it. How did the guy who once represented our neck of the woods get himself in such a mess? We’ll tell you all about it!

Then stick around as we hash out the good, the bad and the ugly of 2021 as we do a political year in review. And what good would looking backwards be if we didn’t also look to the future? Hear our predictions on what we think is going to go down in 2022.

Lastly, we wrap up this entertaining episode with a segment called “If Santa was a Republican”. Tune in to hear what we think Christmas would look like if old Saint Nick was a MAGA-voting member of the GOP. Be ready to laugh your fuzzy socks off!

 

P.S. Your favorite Snowflakes will be taking a couple weeks off to spend time with our families this holiday season, but don’t fret because we’ll be back and ready to delight your ears in 2022. We hope you, our listeners, have a very safe and happy holiday and we thank you for taking the time to listen every week.

Ep. 63 Tik Tok Tech Talk

This week on the Carolina Snowflakes Podcast we’re going deep into the trenches of the rapidly growing social media app, Tik Tok. This episode could also be called “Tik Tok for old people” and in this case, we are the old people.

It’s safe to say we learned a lot during this deep dive and we’re here to share our hilariously engaging bounty of knowledge. We’re also here to answer very important questions. Such as, how has this video sharing app grown to nearly the size of Facebook in only 3 years of existence? Something that took Zuckerberg nearly a decade to achieve is now within reach of Tik Tok’s parent company, Bytedance.

Also, given that Tik Tok is the most popular Chinese-owned social media app in the U.S. what are the implications for privacy protections afforded to American citizens? In a rare moment of bipartisan unity, both sides of congress have agreed that the app poses potential risks. 

Tune in to hear what these risks are, plus a brief history of how the social media app began and the tactics deployed to keep its young users hooked.

This week on the Carolina Snowflakes Podcast we’re checking in on the state of things around us. After recently losing a loved one to COVID-19 and the announcement of the new Omicron variant, we thought it was time to get serious for a few minutes while we examine how things are going with the global pandemic – and where they’re likely heading in the future.

We’ve been right before and it feels bad. 

Be sure to stick around as we’re also checking in on a few of our favorite smooth-brained Republican representatives. Honestly y’all, it’s like they just can’t help but be terrible people.

You know what isn’t terrible though? Us and our zany ideas. Tune in to hear what we think Pelosi should do with the $60,000 in fines collected from anti-masker Marjorie Taylor Greene. We’d love to see this idea come to fruition and we know you will too!
