In this (ancient) episode of the Chris and Andre Show, the guys discuss their plans for Christmas while Chris admits to participating in a bunch of WPS, dive into sports to talk about college football and basketball and the impact of COVID-19 on sports and business, spend time comparing the Mac Mini M1 and older Mac Pros, and get distracted by politics to close things out.

(14:18) Business - Andre’s pissed about how badly the government missed the mark on the PPP funds distribution, the impact COVID-19 is having on the job market plus the overall shifts in employment and hiring practices, the opportunity for cities to become “remote worker hubs.”

(29:49) Technology - The guys geek out over the new Macs with M1 Processors and discuss the comparison videos they’ve been consuming over the past week.

(40:42) Sports 2.0 - Chris remembers he wanted to talk about the Logan Paul vs. Nate Robinson debacle of a boxing match and potential of a Floyd Mayweather Jr. vs. Logan Paul card in the near future.
