Hugh Hefner’s legacy, IT & Rick and Morty breaking records, and made-for-Instagram art exhibits

For this week’s show we talk about the recent passing of Hugh Hefner and discuss our thoughts on his legacy and the discussion the media is having about it; whether it was more exploitation or liberation. Then we talk about the massive success that both IT and Rick and Morty have had and the influence that Rick and Morty in particular has had on McDonald’s. We end things by discussing the recent trend of “Made-for-Instagram” art exhibits and Google’s new hardware lineup and their new flagship phone, the Pixel 2. Check the full episode out above and tell us your thoughts, comments, and questions about the topics in the episode.
