  • Episode 267 – Charlottesville

    https---blueprint-api-production.s3.amazonaws.com-uploads-card-image-562394-3d0a6db5-d0e6-4bff-a60d-3c9aa5693517For this week, we took a look back at the white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, NC and the response by the public and by our President.  How is it appropriate to resist a Nazi rally?  Are there really two sides when there are Nazis on one of the two sides?  Were there any good people who were on the side of the Nazis, KKK, and white supremacists?  Obviously, this is a nuanced topic and we give it all of the nuanced attention it deserves.

    Hey, if you want to see how nuanced the poster for the Unite the Right rally was, it’s below the fold.

    NOTE! Molly got all confused and accidentally said that the answers to the 5 Questions were from Ryan Stello, who reupped his support. They were actually from Ryan Gerber, and we apologize for the error. Molly conflated the Ryans. #NotAllRyans

  • Episode 234 – Fuck 2016

    eff_2016_iconMost folks felt 2016 was a shit show of a year.  We pretty much agree.  For our first episode of 2017, we take a look back at the horror of 2016 and, yes, we finally talk about the election for a little while.  Not long.  It is likely we’ll have a great many more opportunities to talk about the it-would-be-a-bad-sitcom-if-it-wasn’t-actually-real Trump administration.  We look at movies, dead celebrities, and more.  We even talk about Debbie Reynolds as being alive even though the news of her death was breaking while we recorded the episode!

  • Episode 209 – Brexit and Trump

    3feWZw5m_400x400This week we talk with our friend C. Robert Cargill.  Cargill is a novelist (Dreams and Shadows) and screenwriter (Sinister, Dr. Strange) but we talked to him about politics.  Cargill is a Christian and a moderate conservative so he provides a considerably different viewpoint from one normally found on our podcast.  We spend some time looking at the Brexit situation in Britain and how it relates to the rise of Donald Trump in America.  Then, after bemoaning the sad state of politics in our country from the left and the right, we move on to our five questions.   Hopefully, we can get Cargill back to talk about his work on films like Sinister and Dr. Strange after Strange hits the theaters in November!

  • Episode 187 – Politics!

    PoliticsWith the caucus/primary season coming up, we spent this week talking about politics!  As you probably expect, the three of us are fairly progressive so much of our conversation centers around the Hilary Clinton/Bernie Sanders camps.  There is actually a fair amount of disagreement there.  We do spend a little bit of time talking about our reasons for rejecting the Republican party and it has a lot to do with our non-religious roots.  So if you are a conservative listener – that’s cool.  But you might want to check back in with us next week.
