Our Hero reluctantly dives into the latest comic book controversy involving Youtuber ‘Diversity & Comics, Mark Waid and a bunch of other comic book professionals and fans.

Sal gets a little dark in the first half of this episode as he rambles on about the future of Apple products and the possibility of directly implanting memories and experiences into your brain for a small fee. Why leave the house if you could simply experience someone else’s interesting life? Meanwhile...Rick and Morty lay a bit of an egg with the latest episode but our Hero still finds enough in ‘Morty’s Mind Blowers’ to babble for the rest of the episode.

Have you ever wondered if there is some connection to the human mind's need for curating bizarre amounts of data and the creative process in comics, film, and music? Our Hero has and is inclined to discuss the fascinating database of Elvis Presley jumpsuits, the Beatles, comic book gutters, and the creative process.

In the second half of the show we take on the Punching Nazi meme and discuss if violence is a solution to the racial issues we face today.
