As we begin this episode (recorded 12/1/17), you can hear sirens in the background as Hawaii conducts the first test of its new new nuclear attack warning system in the background. We go on to discuss—once Robert finishes ducking and covering—the prospects for the Republican tax bill.
Next we forecast Pantone’s 2018 Color of Year. Last year Scott correctly guessed it would be Greenery. This year we all agree that the color of the year would either be Cherry Tomato or Meadowlark. In fact, Pantone announced after we recorded that the color of the year will be Ultra Violet, which—apparently—”communicates originality, ingenuity, and visionary thinking that points us toward the future”.
We end the podcast by forecasting how well Star Wars: The Last Jedi will do on Rotten Tomatoes and at the box office. Then we guess the name of Prince William and Kate Middleton’s forthcoming baby (Alice is the favorite on Paddy Power at 8/1).
We inverted the ratio of girls to boys born at the end of the podcast and regret the error. You can find NonProphets on Blubrry, iTunes, Stitcher and Google Play.
