It’s time for some controversy! This week, Jen and I talk about the “shock” over casting black people in The Hunger Games, why we need more black superheroes, and Google’s new super geek item of the year (which isn’t an April Fool’s joke, apparently). Feel free to drop in with your thoughts!
We hope you enjoy the episode!
