Episode #5×04: Ridin’ Solo

  • The government may have been re-opened for three weeks, but #Millennial has always been here for you.
  • We welcome #Millennial’s official gaming correspondent (and nothing else), Marc, back to the show!
  • Andrew and Pat are about to head to Vegas where they will enjoy West Coast specialties like In-N-Out and painted rocks.
  • Thoughts and Prayers: Andrew facing sub-arctic temperatures and Laura facing the Super Bowl in her home city.
  • Nintendo and Toei/Namco-Bandai seem to be snubbing major tournaments by not allowing them to host Super Smash Bros or Dragonball Fighterz. We wonder why they’re being such buzzkills and how this would even be enforceable at smaller scale tournaments.
  • In the news: A GAY 2020 candidate, Canada ranked #1 for quality of life in the world, Venezuela’s leader rated the absolute worst with 80% of his country opposing him, and the creators of Fortnite being sued for stealing some sweet dance moves.

And in this week’s installment of After Dark:

  • A number of celebrities are sitting out this year’s Super Bowl to protest police brutality and the NFL’s treatment of Colin Kaepernick.
  • When does celebrity activism work, and when does it fall flat? Internet personalities seem to do a better job of keeping narratives constant, while A-listers tend to make one-off statements.
  • As per usual, we get off topic and start talking about random stories from our youth. We’re sorry.
