EP157: Disney In Talks To Buy 21st Century Fox

It was a rough news week for Disney. The one bright spot was a story about how Disney and 21st Century Fox have been in on-again, off-again talks for its studio division. That news was largely positive. The rest of the week - not so much. Thor: Ragnarok became the 14th Marvel movie to pass $500 million at the global box office, but that news was overshadowed by Disney's incredibly misguided blackout of the LA Times. And let's not even get started on Disney's disappointing 4th quarter...

EP152: Guns, Race and Politics

I do my best to keep the "outside world" separate from this podcast. But I couldn't act like everything was normal this week. Nothing was normal about the what happened in Las Vegas. And I kept hearing the same thing over and over: "Nothing is going to change." The reason behind that statement was that Congress won't do anything to change the laws. The right won't talk to the left, and the left won't talk to the right. But to me, the problem is bigger than that. We, as Americans, won't...
