Social distancing and the Andromeda Strain (1971)

We are social distancing at If You’re Like Me, but that’s ok, we’ve been socially distancing and not watching sports for years.

On today’s episode we talk about how life has changed under covid-19, working from home, Rome’s new puppy, and the death of Kenny Rogers.

We also watch the 1971 classic The Andromeda Strain, directed by Robert Wise. You can watch it with us–just pause the podcast and restart it after the movie is done.

We hope everybody stays safe in these unusual times. Thanks for listening.
