One family's tour through the history of pop culture and the nonstop arguments that follow. Join cousins Anthony, Lev, and Gabe, along with their Uncle Steve as they explore a new pop of culture each episode.
Shortly after Chadwick Boseman passed away, the boys wanted to do an episode on the actor and Black Panther. We discuss the hero's history in the comic books (11:33), Chadwick Boseman's career (21:13), and Black Panther's role and best moments in the MCU (35:57). Also, Lev really wants to know who would win in a fight: Black Panther or Batman (and then later Hulk).
Rest In Power, Chadwick Boseman. Rest In Power, King. Wakanda Forever.
