I’m the Host A slightly deeper look at the media we all consume

Welcome to the future! Our first episode of 2017 finds us staring into the void of what is yet to be with four episodes of Black Mirror. We also ask some near-future what-ifs of our own about how society will progress. Topics include: athletics, prosthetics, driverless cars, policing technology, manufactured meat, veganism, and using apps to lie to your children. Will we survive the future? Don't wait! Download now and find out.

Editor Note: Blake was ONCE AGAIN wrong: it was in fact NOT Jon Hamm on the 2016 Big Fat Quiz of the Year show, but rather Rob Delaney. 

Blake Note: But seriously, just look at them; can you blame me for thinking they were the same guy? http://i.imgur.com/jqeBf0c.jpg

Just in time for the Stanley Cup finals, Kurt invites us watch the 2011 movie Goon. We discuss how this movie contains almost every sports-movie trope known to man, and we compare/contrast how it handles them. We also drift off on various sports-themed topics, and Blake shows us that anime is the true source of all the world's inspirational quotes.  
P.S.: We are now on iTunesStitcherTuneIn, and Google Play. So now it should be way easier for you to download the show. Any comments, ratings, and subscriptions are greatly welcomed, and will help us get to a once-a-week format faster.  -Kurt-
