Welcome to The Ankler Podcast. This is Sean McNulty from The Wakeup newsletter here at The Ankler here in New York City on the morning of Friday, April 14th. Joining me from L.A. are Richard Rushfield and Elaine Low as always. We have a culture editor at The Bulwark and contributing columnist to The Washington Post, and of course, host of The Bulwark Goes to Hollywood podcast, Mr. Sonny Bunch live from his Covid bunker in Dallas, Texas. We'll get to that in a moment, but Sonny, thanks for joining.
Sonny Bunch (00:36):
Thanks for having me on.
Sean McNulty (00:38):
Before that, of course, you could follow The Ankler on all social platforms, @theankler, and sign up to get all Ankler newsletters and podcasts at theankler.com. Richard, that's of course, the Webby award-nominated ankler.com. As you always say, "Vote early and vote often." Isn't that your phrase often in The Ankler hallway here?
Richard Rushfield (00:55):
As many identities as you can create you can vote. All your web aliases, it's time for them to stand up and be counted.
Sean McNulty (01:04):
Exactly. You can go to vote.webbyawards.com. We're in the websites' category in the email newsletters subcategory, or the link is also in the Friday edition, today's edition of The Wakeup as well, which you can find at theankler.com. Sonny, Bob Iger's Disney World improvements apparently include free Covid? How you doing? What's going on, man?
