In this week’s episode our three heroes parry opinions about what is now banned in New York City elementary schools; The Land of Oz; Miles Davis and performer’s contract stipulations. They weight in on lengthy comic book legal battles,  comic-book reboots, and the Borgninian Moment of the Week, before they realize it is their 25th […]
