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?
