    Summer of Pop Culture Recap: Obi-Wan Kenobi, Ms. Marvel, Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, and Thor: Love and Thunder

    Summer of Pop Culture Recap: Obi-Wan Kenobi, Ms. Marvel, Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, and Thor: Love and Thunder

    In this episode, we get caught up on all the reviews we started and didn't finish, or ones that we should have done a while ago but are just now getting around to doing.


    (00:03:18) Obi-Wan Kenobi: We give our review of the first season now that it's finally over and take issue with some of the things the show did while also giving credit where credit is due.


    (00:15:22) Ms. Marvel: Two-thirds of us loved this show and really enjoyed the story it told, while one of us just couldn't get on board with it. We also address the 6-episode issue Marvel and Disney+ seem to be having.


    (00:33:11) Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness: Again, two-thirds us enjoyed the film, but one us absolutely hated it. Was this Sam Raimi's best writing job yet, or did this film get lost along the way?


    (00:51:09) Thor: Love and Thunder: Only two of us have seen the film, but the third member of the show decided to weigh in anyways, despite only having seen the trailers. Does his hatred for Taika Waititi blind him from enjoying anything he touches or does Andre make some good points despite the fact that he HASN'T SEEN THE MOVIE YET? You be the judge!

    The Death of News and Rise of Infotainment | THE BIG RANT

    The Death of News and Rise of Infotainment | THE BIG RANT

    In this edition of THE BIG RANT, Chris and Andre focus in on the steady decline in news viewership and the seeming increase in the number of "info-tainment" shows designed to combine traditional news stories with humor.


    Along the way they discuss a recent Axios article highlighting the fall in cable news ratings, the shift from news anchors and traditional journalists to tv personalities as hosts of longstanding news programs, the supposed need for sensationalism in news coverage, "bad news fatigue," and the consolidation of news outlet ownership.


    Ultimately, the guys explain why they feel this is a bad trend for society as a whole and how this shift has led to people feeling that being aware is the same as being informed.
