Episode 432: What About B.o.B.?

Beef trademarkOne half of the Digital Strips crew loves Twitter beeves. One half couldn’t care less, especially when it’s between an American astrophysicist and a hip-hop artist. Which half is the better one? While you think about that and whether or not a Wonderella movie starring H. Jon Benjamin would be the best thing (hint: it would), you can also listen for some hot takes on webcomics! Jason works in some wrestling conversations around the comic tie-ins for Lucha Underground, while Steve brought Tumbledry and Plox for the two of them to enjoy and discuss. Stick around after a short outro for instructions on how to form your own children’s Power Ranger Zord. It’s … more complicated than you might think.
