    No Trump? Right?

    Arahant:No Trump? Right?

    We’re still attempting to talk about anything except Trump.  The name is mentioned a few times because we talk about trade policy (later in the podcast) and the Trump/Sanders perspective is referred to as such, but none of the conversation revolves around trump.

    It sounded like the writers got hold of the first twenty minutes and made all the subject gay (to borrow from the show’s vernacular). Good trade stuff later. All-in-all, very danceable. Solid 80.

    Hey, that was the one current event we actually touched upon!  It’s pretty hard to do non-Trump current events.

    oh, there is no limitation on the number of podcasts that we can do where we discuss comic books.

    Salvatore Padula:What is arrow?

    It is a TV show based on green arrow.  I’ve never seen it, so I can’t offer a critique… except to say that green arrow sucks as a character.

    He’s not that bad if done right, although he is a Marxist (really).

    I’m perfectly happy to defer to your expertise on such matters.

    Then we’re both deferring.

    Jamie, I think the best version of Green Arrow is Hawkeye.

    How about J’onn J’onzz, Manhunter from Mars? Clearly I need a chunk of Saturday to be set aside to listen in depth…

    Martian Manhunter is a pretty good character in the Justice League (and the DCU) cartoons.  He’s also pretty cool in the lego justice league (I know, I know).

    and yes, this is one episode that you should probably listen to on a Saturday morning.

    Ryan? Let other people talk? He didn’t even let me talk when I was a guest on the show.

    Well, we let you talk but then felt it would be best to edit it out.

    Blame Frank!  He was the one paraphrasing your argument.  :)

    Good move, but at least my laugh was left in.

    Ryan- I hate to say it, but criticizing a superhero cartoon for being unrealistic seems to be missing the point.

    Ok, I’m with you there. But there is unrealistic and then there is just plain lazy.

    I’m not a Star Wars fan, but I laughed out loud during the last movie when Han Solo incredulously tells the other guy, “That’s not how the Force works!”

    It’s a shame my explanation of objectivist Spider-Man was before we started.

    My chief criticism of Star Trek is an implausible absence of sexbots. Unless human nature changes dramatically, they’re a lot closer to reality than interstellar travel.

    If you and Frank set up a time, I’ll organize, record, and moderate it.

    We can release it as a special-event podcast.

    I think that’s what the holodeck is for.  Nobody says it, but everybody knows it.

    The closest they come is the program that guy writes in TNG where Troy is a damsel-in-distress and he is the hero.  She feels violated, which is supposed to have some message… the only message I got was how stinking easy it would be to “violate” people in the future.
