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.

Though Kara Walker seemed to be making political statements on the gallery walls, her artist statement and the show title were in my opinion the most politically charged. You can feel her resentment for being the poster child for black contemporary art and racial politics in art. The show itself seemed like a response to the art world hype; basically saying Kara Walker's work is dope, we hate the criticism but love the hype.
