Steve is concerned with the massive sex problem facing Japan and he wants to discuss it with Jason. He also brings robots into the mix, which, given the geographic setting, isn’t out of the question. Proving that Steve is making great choices, he also regails us with his tales of blood, sweat, and tears, and what his son’s reaction was to seeing them all in person.
We start off with the newest Mario game coming straight to a device probably currently in your pocket, then try to figure out who the new half generation of consoles is for.

We talk about James Bond, horrible people you can run into at the movies, jokes that don’t land and those that do, why people who don’t draw are lazy turds and how to end world guy-hunger. We also learn that on the rare occasions that I bring the pain, it’s because I have to poop. We argue about whether or not I’m saying nice things about this comic.
For our middle music I finally found a song that speaks to me as a rare hick/geek, “Corn-fed Kong” by David Wise.
Not much in the way of show notes, but here’s what we got:
