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.
