    Uh oh! Did we just become a celebrity gossip podcast!? You can't avoid it, so we talked about it. But who is at fault here? Should we do more commentary as half-informed outsiders?

    You decide.

    Don't F*#k with Cats Update

    Don't F*#k with Cats Update

    One year later, Drew finally watches the documentary and has some things to say about it.

    A Short in which we discuss the Netflix show about the bizarre, true story of a digital psycho and the international hunt to find him.

    The series chronicles events following a crowd-sourced amateur investigation into a series of animal cruelty acts, committed by the now infamous Luka Magnotta. This obsessive celebrity hopeful attempted to diminish his internet obscurity by circulating videos of himself torturing and killing kittens. As his obsession grew, his acts eventually culminated in the murder of Chinese international student Jun Lin, who Luka lured into unknowingly becoming his next internet torture video.

    Drew's Mad as Hell and Is Not Going to Take It Anymore

    Drew's Mad as Hell and Is Not Going to Take It Anymore

    In this bonus rant, Drew attempts to articulate his inner frustrations of being abandoned by political parties who--at this point-- playcate to the woke-cult intersectional identitarian radicals and no longer reflect his belief or social values. During this historic and tumultuous time for the country the likes of which the world has never seen;  an economic collapse; a scary new pandemic, riots in every major city with political turmoil that threatens to tear the very fabric of the country apart.  There's a storm on the horizon. And with the 2020 election less than one hundred days away, one thing's for sure: No one knows what's next.

    Rise of the Robot Revolution

    Rise of the Robot Revolution

    Do you feel uneasy about the technological direction humanity is going?  Like humanity is meddling with forces beyond our feeble comprehension? From Skynet’s Terminators to the matrix in… The Matrix, Sci-Fi Pop Culture has showed  us time and again that AI sentience will ultimately have dire consequences for humanity.

    In the coming decades, robots and artificial intelligence will fundamentally change our world. In doing so, they offer to many optimists the hope of a golden future.  To others, a dark dystopian look of days to come.

    In this episode, we analyze the impact of robots on the labor market, people’s attitudes to robots, the impact of robots on society, and the appropriate policies our society should pursue to prepare our world for the Robot Revolution.

    Should life imitate art? Will this future of household robots and universal AI integration usher in a new golden era of productivity and prosperity?  Or will our collective robo-paranoia prove to be warranted?

    You decide.
