This week's episode of The GAR! Podcast includes discussion of the following: the Agatha Knife game; the Nintendo Switch; Mario, Bowser and the hat game; white racist gloves; Carmine Infantino, the Flash, and the Colors of Evil; The Return of Barry Allen; generational superheroes; best and worst candy; Sugar Daddies and nougat; Trump trick or treat; Ray goes off on the opioids crisis; "Green Acres" in 2017; evil Alex Trebek; and the morality of Granny Clampett.
(Ray here. Boy, did I go off on the opioid crisis in America. I really hope we do more to treat this in America. According to Glenn, I went off for about 20 minutes here. If you don't want to listen to me talking about the history of opioids in America, I totally understand. I'm not an expert, just an informed amateur. But if you'd like to learn more, I highly recommend this recent article in Esquire about Purdue Pharma and Oxycontin. In my opinion, the opioid epidemic is a uniquely American issue that requires a more sophisticated take than the old "just say no" slogan, and my heart goes out to everyone affected. And next week, I'll try to be nerdier.)
The GAR! Podcast is the Glenn Walker and Ray Cornwall weekly podcast where they talk unrehearsed about whatever happens to come to mind. It's an audio-zine for your mind, a nerd exploration of a nerd world, coming to you from the suburbs of New Jersey and the sunny lakes of Florida via Skype.
