Issue 82: A Very Divisive Christmas With Enough Santa To Go Around

Happy holidays and Merry Christmas! Santa galore here at DI HQ! We celebrated by showcasing some of our favorite Christmas comics from Marvel and DC. Some of our meaning some hosts, the actual opinions seem to vary wildly. We hope you and your family get along better than we do.

On this episode, we cover a myriad of issues. Like the time Dr. Doom was Santa! And the time The Punisher was Santa! Or the time Batman was Santa! Or when a homeless guy was Santa (and hung out with Starman). Also: Superman prevents a holiday suicide and Thanos visits dolphins with baby dolly. Sly has another Freudian slip. Darryl learns the true meaning of bravery. Ryan tries to add in some Christmas spirit. And Phil gets yelled at. A lot.

This is what it looks like when we try to have fun. Looks like next time we’ll be back to Edgelord Lobo Nonsense like we did the last two years.

Episode 51: Oops, Forgotten Stories From Ages Ago (A Few Months)

Maybe One Day…

It’s almost the end of the year! Finally! But before we can get there, let’s take a look back on some things that happened throughout the year, some you’ve heard before, some you (maybe?) haven’t, and some you’ve forgotten! Topics range from Trump, to international scuffles, to local rulings, to… (sigh) Dark Futurology.

In this episode, Phil wants a lawyer dog, Sly loves his viewers, Ryan spoils The Prestige, and Darryl doesn’t want Mark Zuckerberg to be his boyfriend.

Peter David’s Second Run On Captain Marvel

On this episode, we talk about the first arc of Peter David’s second run on the fifth volume of Captain Marvel. You know, the one that stars the fourth Marv? Or was it fifth? Maybe third? I can’t keep track anymore. Phil finally learns to appreciate quips. Darryl really wants God to just randomly mess everyone up. Ryan finds out how Darryl really feels about him. And Sly has the father of all Freudian Slips.

After doing our regularly scheduled Holiday and New Year’s Episodes, we’ll be back in January to pick up where we left off with Captain Marvel! Is it FINALLY time to learn more about Carol Danvers? If they’re making a movie, she must be the most accessible and streamlined version of Captain Marvel? Well… tune in next year to find out!

Episode 50: Oops, We Watched A D’Souza “Film”

I really, REALLY hate Dinesh D'Souza
Maybe it doesn’t deserve saving this time around

We watched a Dinesh D’Souza “film” called Death Of A Nation. Whatever you do, don’t watch this god damn movie and DEFINITELY don’t listen to a word this guy says.

On this episode, we celebrate a very successful midterm election by playing chicken with death and watching Death Of A Nation, the Grown Ups 2 of political documentaries. This movie suuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuucks. Darryl took copious notes documenting all the arguments Dinesh forgets to follow up on. Ryan wants to arrest filmmakers who don’t agree with him. Phil’s basically a scientist arguing flat earthers. And Sly is rushing towards death at 7 times speed.

Episode 49: Q: A Non-Intelligent Person’s Guide To George Soros

Qanon is so fucking stupid
The Name’s Non. QAnon.

Election Day was yesterday, but we recorded this on Sunday, so I really hope you people voted. I’m writing this on election day morning, from my dark room that only has 538 refreshing every 4 minutes and an IV to keep me hydrated from all the tears and nervous sweating. Am I rambling? No, you are. This is what QAnon sounds like, right? Just stupid rambling?

On this episode, we talk about some conspiracy theories. Just what the heck is QAnon and why do so many people think he has the inside scoop on which Democrats are about to go to jail? And is George Soros really the mastermind that the right pretends he is? Darryl just tries to have a little fun. Ryan debates with an attempted murderer. Phil has really just had enough of… everything. And Sly feels VERY strongly about Home Depot’s donations.

Episode 48: Should We Fudgepack the Courts?

Fudgepack
Truly the Worst Fate to Fall Upon the Supreme Court

The Republicans filibustered Obama’s Supreme Court choice and snuck in their own guy. And now they’ve gone one step lower by appointing a sexual predator! Should the Democrats sit back and take it until their terms expire decades from now? Or should the Democrats consider packing the Courts like FDR did back in the day?

In this episode, the gang talks about the history of court packing and it’s practicality in the modern era. We discuss not just FDR’s infamous courtpacking but also Abraham Lincoln’s. We also get into the dark era of the court that FDR ended and we’re now revisiting. Phil establishes that there gonna be court but not what do. Sly reveals himself to be the most milquetoast piece of **** of all while Darryl just wants blood.
