We are officially now a year into the pandemic! We are thankful for vaccines, our health, friends, family and this show. Catching up on the heavy: Anti-Asian Hate, Chauvin trial, voter suppression & the good stuff: seafood enchiladas, the beach and puppy time! Check out StopAAPIHate.org for ways to support the Asian American community now.

Our first guest is our longtime friend & acclaimed science writer Roxanne Khamsi and notably she has focused her writing on viruses for years. Roxanne moved to Montreal, Canada just over a year ago from NYC. We discuss where we are at with regard to conversations surrounding the coronavirus, washing vegetables, empathy, soaking cilantro and Canadian living. Christian gives guidance on some of his favorite Montreal spots.

Our second guest is currently Los Angeles based comedian and writer Rae Sanni who misses her hometown of NYC very much. Rae was a former staff writer for shows like The President's Show, The Good Place, A Black Lady Sketch Show. We talk hoarding, comedy gigs during the pandemic, the virtual writer's room, & Rae's journey to making comedy a career choice. Rae is OBSESSED with Reality TV. She breaks down for us just why she loves certain reality tv shows over others. Rae even makes Christian & Shonali want to become new audience members of the RHWOSLC (yes, there is now a Real Housewives of Salt Lake City!) When we get back to live performances, make sure you see Rae on stage!

In honor of Women's History Month, we suggest you watch the new Tina Turner Documentary. As Christian says, Tina Turner is a shero. Her remarkable strength, grace, will and her perseverance through her life's struggles is inspiration to us all. To all stay diligent, enjoy the sunshine & thanks for supporting us all these years!
