We're back and with special guest and artist/photographer/videographer Sara Meghdari (@szmeghdari). We discuss the difficulties of being a photographer in NYC, her first live public performance, which showed the very private act of covering and putting on her hijab, and recent art shows around the city. We continue with art news such as more interactive art exhibits popping up across the country, scents and smells being incorporated into exhibits and museums as it's own art form and to enhance or change the way we perceive art, and the world's first cryptocurrency art auction taking place. Then we close things out talking about Seasons 2 of 'Westworld' and 'Luke Cage', and the underappreciated 'Queen of the South.'
We're back (Shannon, Dareece, and Dario) and we're ready to discuss our thoughts about the Oscars and most importantly see who won from our prior predictions. But first we open by getting Shannon and Dario's opinions about Black Panther and close with discussions about Lion King 2, Sandlot 2, and Disney's continued (lackluster) effort at making live-adaptations of their classic animated films - which spawned the meme worthy phrase, "You don't know about Kovu bro?!". As well, as Shannon's Top 5 Stephen King adaptations and new shows like Counterpart and Hap and Leonard that you should all check out.
In Episode 6 we discuss The World Series delivering as promised and going to a game 7, and the major announcements from both Microsoft and Apple. Microsoft looks to be taking the lead on innovation, especially when it comes to creativity, while Apple continues to make incremental enhancements. We also dive into Telsa's new developments, DiCaprio's new documentary, films and shows we're watching, and Facebook bringing shopping to Instagram. Check out the full episode and you can see the time-stamps for the various topics on the full post.
We're back and joined by guests and frequent contributors Shannon Griffiths and Stephen Silver to talk about the latest happenings in film and TV - what is must watch, the recent wave of blockbuster films, and releases just around the corner. And we discuss whether we think 'fanboyism' has started to become to toxic to the very things they love.

Season 1 of Westworld was as engrossing an opening season as I've ever seen. The production was movie worthy, the acting was superb, and the world building was spectacular. It was a thoughtful season that presented large existential themes and a world where everything resided in the far more interesting and far more realistic grey area. Some of the twists and outcomes may have been telegraphed, but it was one hell of a ride to the end. Simply amazing.
