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!

#WakandaForever! You've undoubtedly seen this phrase all over social media due to the amazing success of the CBM "Black Panther". We take a look at the movie, the themes, the characters, the messages that the movie conveys to our youth, and why POSITIVE representation on screen is a good thing. There are a few plot details that we discuss so if you have not seen the film yet, go see it and then come back. As always, we welcome your feedback!

In Episode 30, we take a very special look at the Netflix original movie, Burning Sands, starring Trevor Jackson and directed by Gerard McMurray. While we discuss the film's plot, characters, and its depiction of underground hazing, we have to also ask about whether or not we would allow our children to pledge, and should membership intake become above ground versus traditional underground processes.

To pledge...or not to pledge....that is the question.
