Episode 196: Wrestling Rumbles, Microsoft HoloLens, and Our Understanding of the Geneva Conventions


Episode 196 starts out with some shenanigans, as Brad marvels as to how he can think trivial issues at work amuse him now when they would have annoyed him to no end a few short months ago. From there, it's SkyPunch! and Senior Discount updates, as the guys advertise some upcoming shows. After discussion of the below Web Couliers, there's a tiny dose of movie news about "American Sniper," which of course leads to Chuck and Brad discussing the rules of modern warfare. Listening to Brad try an explain the Geneva Conventions (which he barely understands) is high comedy.
More movie news, as the guys talk about the World War Z sequel, the good-natured Superbowl bet between Chris Evans and Chris Pratt, and the reveal of the new snack "Sweet-O's." Chuck laments not being able to have them, as he is once again on a diet. Chuck tells the story of his gift to our friend Ashley and how much she enjoyed it.

The guys talk about their trip to see a local wrestling show - in this case, the XWA Xtreme Rumble. From there, it's a discussion of the Microsoft HoloLens (video below), before finishing this week's episode with a look toward this Sunday's WWE Royal Rumble.
