Game of Thrones S7 episode 3 (The Queen's Justice): The return of Bronn! Well, kinda. A big chunk of this episode is devoted to talking about two major themes. First is children and their parents' legacies, discussing Ned/Jon, Twyin/Cersei, and Mad King/Daenerys. Second is the role of information — who knows what and how this affects war and characters' future moves. Other topics we cover are: Jon/Dany shipping, who will ride a dragon, Tyrion's poor win-loss record, and why are Jorah and Theon still alive.

We also discuss the return of Rick and Morty. We debate how dark it is so far, especially with the divorce. Then, we go super pretentious and connect Rick and Morty to existentialism, secular humanism, and modernity.

Jason watched The Defiant Ones, the new Dr. Dre and Jimmy Iovine documentary on HBO. He gives us a quick summary and tells us who would find it worth watching.
