    011 - Skinny Scarves Are Cool, Mo

    This week on Tangential, Niki and Jules contemplate a new theme song and as a result Niki breaks out his brand new ukulele. Are you still reading? Niki then mourns the future of the USMNT which perfectly segues into Jules recalling the most metal book of Homer’s Odyssey. In fact, the entirety of last week, Jules was on a literary kick. Probably because the prodigal daughter has returned to university and has spent the bulk of her time in the comfort of the English Reading Room. Don’t worry, Niki will surely keep you awake by dropping some sweet The Last Jedi exclusives.
