The Nose Goes To 'Homecoming' And Breaks 'Jeopardy!'

Apr 26, 2019

To say Beyoncé's performance at Coachella was historic feels like an understatement. In about the span of a week, Queen Bey released a two hour Netflix exclusive film (part one of her deal with the streamer) of the entire concert, a 40-track live album from the same show, which was released unexpectedly, and just for fun, she released her 2016 pop culture smash album "Lemonade" on all streaming platforms, which was originally exclusive to just Tidal.

Let's not forget Bey's Coachella set was months in the making, required about 200 people including dancers, musicians, and backup-singers, surprise appearances from Jay-Z, Destiny's Child, and Solange, and it marked the first time an African American female headlined the 20-year old festival. So, yeah, it's beyond historic.

Today, The Nose gets into Homecoming.

Plus, is Jeopardy! broken? Average joe, James Holzhauer, has set all types of record-setting feats on the game show, and he’s currently on the verge of winning the biggest cash prize in show history. How?

Finally, are podcasts just wasting our time?
