The Avengers is out! We discuss and break down the movie. We share our theories and predictions for the next Avengers film.
I also interviewed Daveed Diggs and Rafael Casal. They wrote and starred the movie Blindspotting. Here's what the movie is about, according to RottonTomatoes.com: "Collin (Daveed Diggs) must make it through his final three days of probation for a chance at a new beginning. He and his troublemaking childhood best friend, Miles (Rafael Casal), work as movers, and when Collin witnesses a police shooting, the two men's friendship is tested as they grapple with identity and their changed realities in the rapidly-gentrifying neighborhood they grew up in."

Episode 069: Santi Thought His Wife Was Cheating

April 24, 2018
Over the past few weeks, Santi convinced himself his wife was having an affair.  He didn't have any proof or concrete evidence to back up his theory. This was all conjured up in his crazy mind. That assumption possibly lead to him crossing the line of trust between him and his wife.
Ramiro is the middle of moving hell and he's stressed out about it.  At this point, nothing is going right and he's at his limit.
What is a breaking the law in the world of "New Media"?  What can someone do to get arrested?  What is an invasion of privacy? And, what will get you sent to jail? All valid questions in today's society.

Episode 068: Jealousy In Our Marriages

April 17, 2018
Ramiro and Santi open up about jealousy in their marriages. Ramiro thinks Santi dances a little too close to the line of flirting. Not in the sense of danger, but more like perception from outside eyes and not in the cheating sense. Santi does his job of defending it, and a pretty convincing one too. They also talk about certain people who have approached their wives and how would they react.
This episode also brings back some of the Hollywood Sex scandals. Santi has a tougher time seeing actors on the screen after certain scandals. Ramiro has an easier time separating reality from acting.
Ramiro claims he LOVES the new Avengers movie, even though the movie hasn't come out yet. WIERD.

March 9, 2018
I'm going to get right to the point. Both Ramiro and I went a few days without power. It sucked. Ramiro still, as of the recording of this episode, doesn' have power...And he has a cold.
