info_outline Episode 132: Could COVID Change the Future of Shipping? 06/19/2020
Episode 132: Could COVID Change the Future of Shipping? The casts and crews of our favorite shows are getting ready to return to work, after a long hiatus... ...and while it's great that we're going to get brand new episodes of television, under very controlled conditions (according to a 37 page document released by the DGA and SAG Unions,) Tamar and Christine cannot help but to ask the biggest question: is this going to change shipping? What will television couples look like if they ditch the makeout sessions for masks? Should we expect an increase of slow-burn romances? How many longing stares and needless breakups can we take before we explode as a result of sexual frustration? T & C also tackle the topic of whether or not shows should just add COVID to their canon, why we still want them to come back despite the restrictions, and read Top 10 lists from outside of the US!

Stick around for a discussion about how we evolve as people -- and how we evolve as 'shippers. How have our Top 10 Lists (the STAPLE of The Shipping Room!) evolved as we, and the world around us, have changed? What did some of our listeners say about their own evolution?
