Jordan does his best Sam Elliott impression to Naomi's delight. They discuss his appeal, sexual and otherwise. Sesame Street turns 50 years old and we learn that the Muppet actors probably cannot rely on natural deodorant in such close quarters.

Naomi and Jordan are joined this week by longtime CBS Sunday Morning fan, Wendy! How did she got on this esteemed podcast? She brought us donuts, of course!

Sue is willing to try this licorice from Denmark if it's the salty kind and has tipped us off to a chance to win some fancy licorice from the company featured on today's show Naomi tries to imagine herself being as generous as Joanna Worsley after her husband's death and thinks she would come up short.

With Tina Turner on this week, we opened up the social media polls to ask listeners which of her songs they wanted us to feature as our outro music. Facebook wanted Better Be Good To Me and Twitter picked The Best, which we should have just picked from the beginning. The Best is an amazing song and should become our national anthem once we move past these dark times.

Faith Salie found the one topic everyone across America can agree with, which is EVERYTHING CANNOT BE BREAKING NEWS!

Also, we fall in love with @craftyiscool aka Allison Hoffman's CBS Sunday Morning fan art pieces.
