Returning to the conversation of Media Violence, the guys chortle, chuckle and guffaw over the career of one Steven Frederic Seagal. The one-time Akido Instructor and current Russian citizen is discussed and “celebrated” in full, leading up to a commentary on the 1996 swing-and-a-miss cop thriller “The Glimmer Man”, co-starring Keenan Ivory Wayans!
When Black History Month rolls around, how do you react? What is it, and how did it come to be? Can it be refined, must it be rebooted, or should it be abolished?
On tonight’s QNA: State of the Union (starring Ice Cube), the two podcasty boys are joined by a third! It’s Peter from Dead Times, with a most unfortunate field reporting on the other pandemic, the talky-type conspiracy hydra.

For some of us, that war has hit home. So we ask, is QAnon the new hotness or does it have deeper roots? Who saves us from the Democratic pedophile endocrine takers? 9/11 is real.

On night one of two, we start off our 2020 Year in Review (that rhymes) with a check-in on su dos hostos before we slide into honorable mentions. From there, we cover our top ten lists from #10 to #6. … More 2020 Coda, Part I: The Death of 2020
This week the guys discuss the year’s uptick in progressive content, primarily in cartoons and video games. What constitutes as progressive media in the first place? Does the effort justify the lack of efficacy?
Starting the Doomsday Clock countdown to the year’s last few episodes, Donovan and Noah discuss last year’s critically acclaimed HBO Watchmen TV series. But is it worthy of its accolades? Is it worthy of the Watchmen name? (Obvious Spoilers for everything Watchmen comic and show related)
