After a long wait, Matt and I give our impressions of Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens. We talk about the characters and scenes in depth, so do not listen if you have not seen the movie yet. Enjoy and hit up our forums for comments!
We start the episode memorializing two civil rights pioneers who passed last week, Julian Bond and Louis Stokes. Also, we feature at least four articles that make us wonder what is going on in Missouri right now.
On the entertainment front, we look at the revealed cast for the upcoming Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.
Mass shootings are becoming a regular occurrence and the country still refuses to implement tougher gun control laws. We talk about the latest theater shooting, the Boy Scouts allowing gay troop leaders, and why Pittsburgh is on so many travel lists.
For entertainment we briefly give our impressions of the new Lando Calrissian Star Wars comic and J-Stars PS4 game.
This week we discuss the legalization of marijuana. Many states are deciding who can use marijuana and whether it should be accessible for a wider range of constituents. Matt and I add our two cents to the debate.
Also, we give our impressions of the new Star Wars movie trailer and thoughts on other upcoming movies.
