There’s lots and lots of business to discuss in this episode! Should we start offering sponsorships? Would random paid-advertisments in the middle of a Tony Consiglio yarn add or detract from the show? Does the podcast qualify in the Journalism category for the Harvey Awards? Should you vote for it? How many Harveys has Alex won, and where does he keep them? What do we think about the demise of Pizza Island? Will Alex interview Tony for a Pro-T.I.P.S? And many, many, more questions. Plus! Our first ever Movie Club Corner, where we break-down and dissect the film that defined Generation X, Reality Bites. Also, the first and probably last, “Kids Say The Darndest Things” segment.

Studygroup Comics head honcho, Zack Soto, creeps into the Lair this week for a wide-ranging discussion: Friday Night Lights, Friday Night Lights, and Friday Night Lights. Plus: some mean-spirited jabs at the aging Baby-Boomer population, coupled with the question of When Will Generation X Wise Up and Start To Respect Their Elders (also coupled with the question of How Much Will The Millennial Generation End Up Hating Generation X?) Also, writing reviews on Goodreads, and one of the toughest pop-culture quizzes we’ve ever featured on the show.

The Panthers welcome The Desert Panther, Tony Consiglio, back into The Lair for an episode packed with controversy, disagreements, and fireworks. Should Weird “Al” Yankovich perform at halftime in next year’s Superbowl, as a blatant pander to all the football-hating Nerds who don’t deserve it? Are any of the Panthers OK with their wives slinging their arms around our necks, like we’re not the men in the marriages, but instead some kind of subdued house-cat? Doesn’t it make more sense to choose being partially paralyzed over having your face mutilated like Jigsaw from the Punisher, assuming you’re single? And what’s up with this new craze the kids are into called “Falling Over in Public”? And can you guess which one of the Panthers wrote this episode summary?

Mike returns from his recent trip to the Angouleme Comics Festival in France, and gives Alex a lengthy run-down of all the goings-ons. As is his custom, Mike takes a “vacation from vegetarianism” when traveling abroad, though unfortunately for the animals, it’s possible that this most recent journey could have been a game-changer. Also, Mike has to come to terms with the fact that he really enjoys visiting foreign countries, but learning a second language is quite simply beyond him at this advanced stage in life. Struggling with the language barrier has simply an unavoidable fact of life.
