Episode 31: Heckler, Netflix, Rudeness in Society, and a Cyberbullying Suicide

After the Senior Discount/Sky Punch and Chuck/Brad updates (and a few funny S*D/SP stories), Chuck and Brad discuss the documentary "Heckler", as well as criticisms of themselves as critics.
They go on to talk about fairness in criticism, where Brad gives Chuck an (extremely rare) compliment.
Chuck announces he has been employed by Moviestop, and Brad expresses some surprise. Brad brings up the three big events of the week - Joe Wilson/Barack Obama, Serena Williams/a sensitive official, and the exhaustively parodied Kanye West/Taylor Swift - and Brad and Chuck bicker about their levels of rudeness.
Chuck brings up Netflix, the streaming video library it brings to the Xbox 360, and its extremely affordable price. The two brothers-in-media also talk about some upcoming movies.
The podcast closes with an odd case of cyberbullying, which directly led to a young girl's suicide.

Episode 30: Halloween 2, Disney/Marvel, Ninja Turtles, and Reality Show Casting Practices

Chuck and Brad welcome podcast return-visitor Aaron Arcello to the show. After the Senior Discount/Sky Punch and Chuck/Brad updates, the three discuss some upgrades to the podcast set-up, then proceed to make fun of the new S*D/Agreeing To Disagree home in Fall River, MA.
The amigos talk about the newly-released Halloween 2, as well as the original Halloween remake. They go on to present a timely discussion about the original Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movies and television show, the fact that Disney has acquired the rights to Marvel, a young man who is crying blood, and reality show violence.
The podcast ends with a short re-hash of last week's Max Hardcore debate, with the addition of Arcello's point of view.
