Caitlyn Jenner: good, or bad? Chris Christie poured himself into some incredibly revealing baseball uniforms. And a horse won some horse races. The Purge: should we have a real one? Age of consent laws - obviously they need some work done, but how much work is too much? A guy shamed his daughter into killing herself - should we, as a society, purge him from the genetic collective? All this and probably even more about gross food again this week on Saturdnate!
Feminism and gaming: is there enough women in video games? Hatred: is it misogynist? Should we donate money to women? Martin O'Malley: would he be a good president? All this and more are things we absolutely didn't talk about in this podcast episode about fast food and dumb tweets.
The Duggars have 19 kids and counting that they don't really take care of, and one of them maybe did some stuff to the others. Is NAMBLA involved? Why did Brian join NAMBLA? Is it a different NAMBLA? Is there a grand patriarchal conspiracy behind the milk council and the radical feminist movement? Plus, the pros and cons of waterboarding your kids. All this and more on this week's Saturdnate.
Is Taylor Swift sincere, or is her entire personality a shadow on the wall: a construct by corporations and a willing participant in a cynically designed campaign to project a false, relatable but harmless avatar onto the simulacrum of mass media. Also: is Dzhokhar a hottie or a nottie? Hardee's: delicious or irresistible? Are we all space aliens playing an intricate game of fakery chess against each other? Is Katy Perry a creature from beyond the void of human perception? Find out in this podcast episode! Unless this entire discussion is just another tool to manipulate the people for our own perceived benefit.
Brian escaped from being a vape hostage long enough to talk with Nate (that's me) about movies and comics and how Jade Helm is good, giving Texas back to the Mexicans, celebrating White Appreciation Day and saying goodbye forever to Ed Balls. Plus, Meltdown May continues. Who's going to meltdown now? Is it me? Probably, but that's not important. We take a look at a few of the meltdowns that have already uh, melted down. Who's next? Send in your bets now!
Nate's back after a bye week with a vengeance, or at least some stuff to talk about. For example, the newest royal baby, a recent trip to Chicago (or Chi-Town as the locals call it), accidentally stumbling into the city the day of the NFL Draft, eating a bunch of steak, Portillo's, traffic, and punching down vs up vs left shark.
Nate and Brian got in a fight about Record Store Day and uppity minimum wage employees. Do you think business owners should get to treat their customers like hobo beggars, or do you agree that record stores should all go out of business? Tune in for the debate, some aimless ranting, plus another debate about Culver's and burgers that have a crust, the amazing media experience that is Paul Blart 2, and whoever Aaron Hernandez is.
The fellas talk about buffets and food, more food, how Easter went, the horrors of nunneries, the Amish, and monster potatoes coming to life. Food stamps: the magical white savior? Possibly. To Catch a Predator: best show ever? No, not really. This and more as we talk about the merits of the punkest dictators who ever lived and the most epic vanity project of all time.
Indiana is a dumb place, and Nate has some rants to say about it. Brian is out sick, so Nate has to bash the gay bashers all by his lonesome. Then, Brian joins in for a half day for some talk about life and livin'. How are you celebrating the murder of Jesus this year? Easter: is it a holiday? Maybe. What are you doing for it? Eating and stuff. Eggs. Ham. And things.
