Hello Omni Talk Fans! Today's podcast is one for the ages!

Not only do I do my best Jessica Rabbit impersonation (careful how far you let your mind wander with that one), but Anne also dialed things up remotely today from swanky Scottsdale, AZ.

The barbs are sharp, the takes are hot, and, yes, I fully expect not to be on Wayfair CEO Niraj Shah's Christmas card list this year.

In today's Fast Five Podcast, Anne and I:

- Examine Jewel-Osco's new microfulfillment partnership with Takeoff.

- Question the activist pushing for a Kohl's e-commerce spinoff.

- Put marketplaces square in our sights as one of the most overhyped tech trends of 2021, following Giant Food's plan to build one.

- Discuss what DoorDash's announcement of instant delivery in NYC means for the last-mile delivery landscape.

- And close with the rant to end all rants on why Wayfair will never succeed in opening up physical retail stores as long as Niraj Shah is at the helm.

There's all that, plus what Anne would name her hedge fund, dames, and the great Amy's Kitchen debate -- i.e. frozen enchiladas or frozen burritos?
