This week the guys welcome in regular stream contributor and resident wildcard, Noah Reno. Noah is a regular in the Mind Gap Podcast stream, on the Saturday night game streams, an all around great guy, and quite the character. The dorks talk about the resurgence of the video game Among Us, a VR attempt of the game Fall Guys, and what Facebook is doing to the Oculus platform now that they own it. The throw-down this week featured a surprise new opener featuring Mr. Tex himself, of Battletech and Space Station 13 fame, saying the titular line which pleased everyone watching on Twitch.  The throw-down itself featured Dr. Who’s Daleks against the tag-team of Magneto and Professor X from Marvel’s X-Men.

This week the boys were delighted to welcome back a true gem of the YouTube underground, Mr. Tex of Tex Talks BattleTech and Space Station 13 notoriety. A podcast host himself, Tex helps the guys navigate a treasure trove of topics while adding his trademark humor to each one. The dorks kick things off talking about tabletop games gone bad and what makes a great villain. The conversation shifts to a personal villain in Tex’s life, Games Workshop, and their handling of the Warhammer 40k series. Someone brings up the film “The Patriot” which opens the door for Tex to flex his historian muscles and shed some light on the founding fathers’ hygiene...or lack thereof. From the live chat, Jarryd insists on asking Tex for his opinion on Superman Returns, Jarryd’s favorite movie of all time, which naturally leads to a discussion on how Batman v Superman could have been improved. The night wraps up with a throw-down in honor of StarTrek day featuring Scotty vs Geordi Laforge and let’s just say Tex litigates his side of this argument very well. Before everyone signs off, Tex shares some fantastic advice for how to look at the rest of 2020 and even shares a recitation of Bukowski to round things out. You can find the works of Mr. Tex and others in the Black Pants Legion on YouTube where Tex Talks BattleTech and generally engages in chicanery on Space Station 13.

In this episode, the boys welcome a fellow creator Jay Schultz who made the card game Skittykitts. They talk about Jay’s game before the conversation turns to the remembrance of actor Chadwick Boseman who tragically passed recently. They discuss the importance of his role as the Black Panther and how the actor made that role and those films so special. The topic eventually shifts to a new series coming out on HBO from director Ridley Scott called Raised by Wolves. The nerds share thoughts about the concept of androids raising children as well as if we’ve already reached the technological singularity. The episode concludes in a throw-down with two similar anti-heroes duking it out when the boys pit The Punisher (Jon Bernthal version) against Billy Butcher from the Boys (season 2 debuts Sept 4th).

In this episode, the guys welcome back to the show the wonderful and talented Mind Gap All-Star, Jamie Jirak! Jamie is a writer for Comicbook.com, perhaps the world’s biggest Agents of Shield fan, and absolutely hilarious. They talk about her turn moderating an Agents of Shield cast Q&A and rubbing elbows with Agent Coulson himself. The dorks then discuss the shocking story of a woman in Detroit who was declared dead by paramedics and then found to be alive at the funeral home. The main topic of the night has our 3 friends dissecting what went down at the DC FanDome which gives Doug the chance to double down on his overwhelming cynicism about the Snyder Cut. In the final topic of the night, the heroes ponder the live-action Powerpuff Girls series that was announced and is being led by Diablo Cody. Things end with another epic throw-down pitting one Agent Coulson vs. Nick Fury. Jamie clearly has a favorite in this fight and she lays down the hard knowledge to back up her choice.
