This week the guys try to make sense of political violence, specifically in the wake of the Russian invasion of Ukraine. Violence is both something to avoid but also historically necessary. Has mankind sufficiently evolved to understand the difference?
The guys (somewhat reluctantly) throw their two cents into the ring of the Joe Rogan-Spotify debacle, wading further into pools of Free Speech, arming one against misinformation and general media madness. Then Harry and Don return to the very first topic of the show and look inward, finding new understanding of themselves in a world … More Joe Rogan, More Media, and Racial Pride vs. Stereotypes ROUND 3
Back for more after an eventful month off, the guys discuss the state of the world and how it’s developed in the five years since starting the podcast. Covid, Book Bannings, Joss Whedon, Leftist Politics and more!
The Netflix Cowboy Bebop Live Action series has premiered, and Donovan is BIG mad. But FIRST! The guys return to the topic of adapting popular franchises for wider audiences, discussing the dangers of nostalgia, the salvation of creativity, and the politics that go into bringing something into the modern day. *This episode discusses spoilers for … More What are the Needs of an Adaptation ROUND 2
This week the guys welcome not just Stella (AGAIN), but her brother in pages Tom Panarese! As teachers, the two guests have invaluable experience for the sake of the topic: Parents and their engagement in their children’s education.
Weary from the last few episodes, the guys this week discuss storytelling genres, specifically the utilization, diversification and depths of some of the more well-worn. Where do Sci-Fi, Westerns, Kaiju and Coming-of-Age go once the spectrum of stories have all been crossed?
The guys discuss the life, career and goals of one Candace Owens, Conservative Media Superstar and Professional Supervillain. Is she malicious or simply misguided? And how might one contend with her and her ilk in a battle of wits?
This week the guys try as vainly as they can to not yell at the Anti-Vaxxer crowd, and instead seek answers into how the country got where it is today, especially when it involves sympathy regarding dead anti-vaxx conservatives.
And so we begin, with a massive look at Seduction of the Innocent, the history of moral panics circa the 1950s, Frederic Wertham being a crappy researcher and Batman being a crappy boyfriend.
