Episode 8 – Is it Okay for Iceman to be Takei?

takei

In this episode, the gang discusses a constant struggle within themselves: Which is more important? Being a nerd or being an SJW?

Diversity is being pushed more and more in media. That’s generally a good thing but is there a point where it changes characters too much? George Takei thinks so, but how do our hosts feel? Sly finally comes out as a nerd while Darryl tries to pitch his Batman washing machine fan fiction. It also turns out Phil doesn’t like his favorite animes being made into white supremacy movies. And Ryan’s moral for the audience is you shouldn’t cry if your character becomes Takei.
