Balloon Juice Episode Two With Me And MD Jackson

In which our heroes, Cal and M.D., reflect on how Luke Skywalker is just some radicalized Jedi kid from a desert shithole planet. That leads us to a discussion of DUNE which leads us to MOBY DICK and via Bill Sienkiewicz, to THE NEW MUTANTS, LEGION and a discussion of comic books as pop culture. Calvin recalls his days as a high school superstar before we launch into a very serious discussion about POM, pimple popping videos, ear wax removal and Kotubukiya figures. We also admit how uncomfortable we are with the new FACE SWAP APP turning Luke Skywalker and the Enterprise crew into girls, LOONEY TUNES, racist tropes, racist syrup, white voice actors on THE SIMPSONS and the joys of punching Nazis. It's PODCAST GOLD this week, folks! You don't want to miss it!
