Rajyasree spots a typo in Abhinandan’s notes:

Rajyasree: You’ve just written things incorrectly. Amber Heard as H-E-R-D, that’s not her surname!

Abhinandan: H-E-A-R-D, Heard?

Rajyasree: Heard, yes.

Abhinandan: Oh, I was having a herd mentality!

Abhinandan and Rajyasree burst out laughing.

This and a whole lot of stuff awful and awesome as Abhinandan Sekhri and Rajyasree Sen review the film Jungle Cry; web series Gaslit; the Layer’r Shot ad controversy; Akshay Kumar’s controversial comments on history books; and the Depp-Heard trial.

PS: A fly is the third co-host of this episode.

Complaining about the media is easy and often justified. But hey, it’s the model that’s flawed.
