Merry Christmas and happy Kwanzaa to everyone! Taking It Down is back in its usual Tuesday slot, and the guys are eager to give out some thanks to devoted listeners (1:19) before talking about the seriousness of COVID-19 (1:55). Then it’s time to talk about The Mandalorian and what it says about Star Wars going forward — and if you haven’t seen the season finale, beware of spoilers (4:39). Then it’s a shout out to the fun of the Druid City Brewery’s Nightcap (19:07) before a discussion of HBO’s documentary on the Bee Gees How Can You Mend a Broken Heart (23:19). And Adam watched the David Fincher film Mank from Netflix, which he determines if the other two guys should watch it — plus, the conversation reveals a glaring hole in Blaine’s pop culture consumption (35:20).
After the break, Natalie Morrow joins the podcast to talk about this week’s episode of The Challenge, which was full of political intrigue (40:54).
