Netflix is parting ways with Marvel, and the reason why is a bit more complex than we expected.

IC 34: Social Media FOMO

Social media is bad for us, and a new university study has proof. We talk about the impact of “FOMO” that social media causes in younger people, plus the 2018 Game Award nominees are both surprising and unsurprising. Fallout’s new game looks quite bad, and GIBI features a social media site we actually like and dogs!

IC 33: Blizzard’s Diablo Fiasco

Remember that short bit of drama over Justin Bieber eating a burrito incorrectly? Turns out, it was a hoax, but what exactly happened? Plus, Blizzard is in trouble with its fans over the Diablo series, and Red Dead 2 is on everyone’s game consoles. Plus some GIBI with English rural life, Bohemian Rhapsody, and more.
