189 – Curb Your Enthusiasm, Wolfenstein, Giant Conglomerate Disney Throws Weight Around

AlienMickeyMouse

This week, David and Patches have praise for the new season of Curb Your Enthusiasm despite a Larry David wiff of an SNL monologue, David played Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus and Da7e watched the very extreme and not at all subtle Nazi-killing video game, and everyone has opinons about Disney, who breifly banned The Los Angeles times from screenings because they didn't like their reporting. It also leaked that Disney was thinking about buying 20th Century Fox and Da7e is very passionate about why this is a bad sign.
