Keri and Carter are joined by Alex Miceli and Mystery Chris for a pop-culture infused Friday Covfefe Break. Keri begins the show with a discussion of the propagandist tactic of preemptively undermining a counterargument, which Carter likens to the classic “poisoning the well” fallacy (although it is a different tactic). This leads to a discussion about the importance of definitions and the purpose of language. Next, they discuss problems that arise when medical professionals prioritize avoiding offending trans patients instead of prioritizing biological reality. They touch on the Olympics and Scarlett Johansson’s lawsuit with Disney, observing that the most irrelevant trivialities seems to be newsworthy to the corporate press.
The other guests then explain to Carter how the new “Masters of the Universe: Revelation” series is a festering necrosis on the beloved He-Man franchise, made possible by Kevin Smith’s dishonest bait-and-switch tactics. After lamenting over how modern writers “murder beloved franchises and wear their carcasses around” (thanks, Pirate Queen for the imagery!), they turn to California’s recall election and note that candidate Larry Elder will be dismissed as “not politically black” by the social justice left. Finally, they analyze how female lead characters in modern films such as Mulan are flat and lack relatability as compared to Sarah Connor in Terminator 2 or Ripley in Aliens.
