Today on the podcast we are tackling the subject of comic strips. Everything from the funnies of yesteryear, to these new-aged “web” comics, we discuss some of our favorites and talk about what does and doesn’t work with the format. 

Also, why we hate trying to open the image in Google Images.

This week we’re reviewing the greatest film of the year (and maybe the best of the decade), Parasite. We discuss the perfect tonality, the intricate and comical plot, and the brilliant metaphors.

Also, why we hate the lack of recognition that foreign films get.

Today we’re covering a set of standup specials that Samuel has repeatedly brought up on the podcast, Daniel Sloss’ Dark and Jigsaw. We discuss both specials and how they deal with offensive comedy, how to tell a joke, as well as some of the darker stories and ideas Daniel goes into. 

Also, why we have impeachment stubbornness.
