After a lengthy break from recording, we are officially back! Curtiss has a new fondness for Spiderman, Vern got hit by a bus and Coleman is still wearing padded pants for his exercise bike.
This week, we do a quick review of the infamous Mueller report. Did Mueller fulfill his mandate even though he ultimately punted on the question of obstruction of justice with regards to Trump? How will the decisions reached (or not reached) embolden President Trump? Does he have a right to gloat?
In other political news, Uncle Joseph Biden officially entered the 2020 Presidential Race from the Democratic Party. Can Joe overcome his past transgressions such as his treatment of Anita Hill and his weird touching incidences? Will name recognition carry him into the primary season?
We wrap up with a discussion about Avengers: Endgame. 22 movies, 11 years, and one big-ass final battle scene. There are spoilers so skip the end of the episode if you have not yet seen the movie.
It's good to be back!
We’re back for another episode of the University College! In an already-crowded Democratic field, the choices for the primary only keep increasing. We play a quick game of “First Word You Think” about the most noteworthy names in the field: Warren, Kamala, Bernie, Joe, Corey, etc. Also, do any of these candidates have a legitimate shot at the political throne, or is it too early to tell?
There’s no doubt that the Jussie Smollet story has garnered quite a bit of attention? Do we think he’s telling the truth? It is certainly a strange story but listen to our discussion to hear our views on that, and the broader topic of why it can be difficult to express an opinion that is contrary to the “mob”.
Finally, how many Nike executives contacted Duke, Coach K, and Zion when Zion’s shoe exploded in one of the biggest games of the year? Did Nike just lose the next “sure thing” before he even got to the league?
As always, we love to hear your feedback, and thanks for listening.
Welcome back to University College Podcast! This episode was in our lost files, but we were finally able to get the files to save correctly!
New year, new you? Not so much for POTUS. This week, we discuss the path from owning the shut down to blaming the Democrats for it--and more importantly the impact on the American people. Recently, it was announced that Michael Cohen, Trump's former fixer, is scheduled to testify in open session on February 7th. Will his testimony lead to any additional information or is this all for show? Lastly, we discuss the R. Kelly documentary and the rightful destruction of his legacy.
