Joel Murphy and Lars Periwinkle look at Bret Stephens’ overreaction to being called a bed bug by Professor David Karpf, which leads to a discussion about the media in general and its ability to drum up controversy by amplifying the voices of an obnoxious minority.
They also discuss the trailer for the new Joker film, Rey’s new lightsaber in the Rise of Skywalker trailer and Joel shares his pitch for the third Deadpool film.
How does Rey’s lightsaber function? Have we seen Martha Wayne’s pearls hit the alley more times than we’ve seen Peter Parker get bit by a spider? Why is Lars so horny? The answers to these questions and more are on this week’s show.

Will we really have to watch Uncle Ben be murdered again on-screen? What will the fourth Matrix film be about? Why were the previous Matrix films so horny? The answers to these questions and more are on this week’s show.
