IC 40: Worse Than Video Games?

Research shows that young men are spending more hours playing video games. Randolf and I get into whether that’s a problem. We check out Apex Legends, the new game that’s keeping the battle royale genre alive. That plus You’ve Gotta See this with Russian Doll, animal moments on Twitter, and much more.
