Episode 128 - Pop Star Rivalry

M&W get right into things by talking about Bill Maher. Why Bill you ask? Well, because as you may or may not know, he's always been a semi-controversial political commentator with a habit of hiding behind his comedy as a way of saying whatever he wants. However, now he's using the N-word a little too lesiurely and has, rightfully so, come under fire for it. The magnificent duo discuss. Also, Katy Perry vs Taylor Swift. Katy drops a new album and Taylor responds by releasing her music on Spotify and other streaming platforms. Petty? Sure. Amusing? You bet. Monster and Wine share their thoughts and hope that you enjoy.

It's all in the name kiddos. This episode is jam-packed full of reviews. Monster kicks things off by ranting, again, about the band Thrice and the evolution of their sound.

Episode 122 - Going 0 to 60

Getting heated, almost instantaenously, is what get's this episode started. We've all been there. We all those things that just make us lose our cool right away.

Monster gives a quick review for the, "Star Wars: The Last Jedi," teaser trailer and ends the episode asking Wine some life changing questions to ponder.

Episode 120 - The Virtual Prostitute

A big, fat chunk of this week's episode belongs to the topic of the recent YouTube boycott. No, people aren't suddenly finished tuning in to videos on the platform, but major advertisers are pulling their ads from YouTube because they've realized that their products/services/brands are being placed in front of videos of questionable content/taste. Monster discusses the most recent episode of Bates Motel, "Marion" and how it ties in with the classic, "Psycho" film. Wine wraps this beefy episode up with some Car Talk and how the hunt for a new ride might be coming to an end.
