This episode is the special-est, you guys.

In this super adult-sized four-hour episode, JKP tackles the latest scandals, controversies and general uproar regarding sexism and feminism within the realms of video games, comics and more.

Brandon, Tom, Josh and Harrison kick off the first half, giving their thoughts and opinions on everything from abusive game trailers to feminist kickstarters to overtly sexual comic characters. Then, in the second half, Brandon sticks around as moderator for perspectives on those same topics from Heidi, Sarah, Emily, Naty and JKP newcomer Jen. Ire is rised! Eyes are rolled! It’s one of our most concentrated episodes yet, and most certainly the longest. Put on those sincerity hats and (hopefully) enjoy!

Timecodes for the impatient (and who can blame them) are as follows:

The Boy Half: 0:03:10  —  The Girl Half: 2:11:30

Lastly, don’t forget to hit the jump for a comprehensive list of all the relevant topics, articles, trailers and videos that pop up during the discussions!

Forget video games and comics; we’re redefining art by putting tires on goats.

This week: Brandon forgets to watch the clock and things tumble well beyond any sort of reasonable time limit. Settle in with a hot mug of wassail (whatever the hell that is) and join Brandon, Josh, Tom, and Zack for a three-hour adventure that has no real justification. Included herein: racial epithets, bathroom stories, listener emails, and maybe, just possibly, a brand-new jingle for a regular occurrence. Brandon edited the hell out of this one, so enjoy the show goddammit.
