We know what the verdict will be, and that’s frustrating. It’s infuriating, but specifically, it’s frustrating. It’s that same feeling from the doldrums of the Trump presidency, when the solution to impeachment or a probe into illegal dealings with a foreign adversary is to ignore them. I had never even considered that “ignoring a subpoena” was an option, but I’ll have to keep it in mind for next time. Throughout the last four years, I’d often think about how they keep winning — not just getting away with crimes, but cheating the systems, rolling back civil liberties, getting away with crimes (we’d had more “bombshells” dropped on us than Southeast Asia) and not losing voters. It just seemed like, “Wait a minute?” If the Republicans are as dumb as we say they are, and their voters are as dumb as we know they are, why can’t we figure out how to use that to our advantage?

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. In the immediate aftermath of the Trump presidency, the Republican Party is no less a threat, already off to the races blocking Biden’s policy rollout like they block phosphodiesterase 5, is nevertheless split between some unknown “old-school” establishment centrism and the existential (but so frustrating dumbass) violence of the fringe-o’s. 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. Worst doomsday cult ever. But like the Cyclones, They Have A Plan. … More Republicans: Where Are They Now?
Weeks after the terrorist attack on Capitol Hill, calls for the Punisher character to be retired were made, some by comic creators! The guys discuss how Frank Castle is seen in the eyes of police, gun rights activists and extremists while going through the three live action films and Netflix tv series.
On January 6th, a crazed mob stormed the Capitol building in an effort to overturn the results of the 2020 election through murderous means. One week later, Donald Trump became the first president in history to be impeached twice. But of course the story doesn’t end there. RIP MF DOOM.
On night two of two, Donovan (and not Harrison, not even) express a fondness for all things wonderful — nostalgic things, childhood crushes, modern crushes, The Most Beautiful Woman on the Planet, Tifa Lockhart, and a YouTube argumentsman. As usual, it gets weird (Donovan’s fault, of course). Well, what does Theodore Sturgeon’s Law say…? … More 2020 Coda, Part II: The Simple Things
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)
Taking a break from the onslaught of the year, the guys discuss one of the many controversial Alan Moore adapted works while watching 2003’s LXG!
