About This Episode

The self-isolation descent into insanity continues as Bubba, Matt, and Kate continue to document their activities (or lack thereof). Kate organized a video game hostage handoff that involved Whole Food bags in a parking lot, Matt continues his Star Trek: The Next Generation binge with his wife as well as hunting for the money his child hid on his Animal Crossing: New Horizons island, and Bubba gets sucked into the redneck cousin of Making of a Murderer: Netflix’s Tiger King.
