We don’t like to discuss politics straightforwardly on this show, but in today’s episode we touched on a bunch of stuff that borders on political. Well, everything’s political, really. Sorry.
Nevertheless we hope you put up with (and maybe even get something out of) our discussions on The Vietnam War (both the actual event and the Ken Burns documentary), James Gunn’s firing, and how the cultural discourse has gotten so uncivil.
We usually don’t talk “current events” all that much. This episode was recorded a couple weeks ago so things around the James Gunn situation have developed a bit, but hopefully our discussion is still mostly valid.
Stick around to the end of the show to hear us definitely answer the question on everybody’s minds: when did Facebook stop being cool?
We’re back after our unintentional hiatus! Did you miss us? We’ll alleviate that feeling! Listen and you’ll be sick of us soon enough!
Join us to hear some of what we’ve been doing with our summers, a strange, unexpected diversion on the topic of musicals, and new, exciting ways you can contact our show and give us better things to talk about in the future!
We’ve added a Twitter feed and an email address (see the links above). You can contact our show and tell us what you’d like to hear. Or we’ll assume that nobody listens and just keep doing whatever we want. That’s cool too.
The 14 year wait is over! So… what did we think of Incredibles 2 after all this time waiting for it? It’s complicated. In our lengthy discussion, we debate the merits and problems of the long-awaited Pixar sequel.

We began with a Star Wars movie discussion and now we bring you another one just six months later. It’s almost like they released two Star Wars movies really close together. But that would be crazy!
Our talk includes abbreviated thoughts on the first spin-off, Rogue One, and Star Wars expanded universes new and old. Oh, and we also talk about Solo, eventually.
