If you’re surprised that the Kardashians are the lead story on this week’s episode of Show Your Work, you’re not alone.

The jury is now deliberating in the Taylor Swift civil trial against (is that the right word? Against?) former DJ David Mueller who allegedly groped her ass during a meet and greet in 2013.

Here’s what happens every week behind the scenes when we record Show Your Work: Duana and Jacek speak passive aggressively to each other about the positioning of her microphone.

We begin this week’s podcast with a conversation about work posture which somehow devolves into a discussion about sh-tting posture which is a great lead-in to Ashton Kutcher.

We’re a day late on Show Your Work this week because I went to Graceland. And maybe you’re tired of me talking about Graceland but when I was at Graceland, I observed the WORK of Graceland.
