Rabblecast 419 - Wrestling, A Video Game Con, and The Stock Market!

If you're a regular listener to the podcast, you know that some of them are not considered "grown up" topics. Professional wrestling has always been something near and dear to us. As such, we touch upon WWE's latest PPV, Night of Champions.

Video games is another subject that we all enjoy. Be it classic games, new games, even those of the board game variety. Hernandez talks about a recent trip to the very first, A Video Game Con that was held in Parsipanny, NJ.

And we wrap it all up with the recent news about a former hedge fund manager, Martin Shkreli buying the rights to a drug called, Daraprim. With all of the news about the drug's price hike, Jimmy decided to do some research and what he comes up with is a scheme which sounds very similar to something out of a classic Hollywood movie.

Rabblecast 413 - Who Watched the New Fantastic Four Movie?

The new Fantastic Four movie from 20th Century Fox Studios quickly became a polarizing prospect. From its initial announcement, the "die hard comic book fans" took sides. "Too soon...", "Give it back to Marvel/Disney...", "Why are they rebooting another superhero film..", were just some of the out cries from fans. But that did not stop 20th Century Fox from pushing forward with Josh Trank in the director's chair.

Josh Trank previously directed, Chronicle(2012) for 20th Century Fox which was praised as a great success for the studio and for the young director. As such, hopes were running high for a reboot/relaunch of "Marvel's First Family". The day before the domestic release, Trank took to social media, distancing himself from the film and placing blame on 20th Century Fox for the negative reviews. Who is to blame? Who watched the new Fantastic Four movie?

This week's "Horrible Event in History", The Axe Man of New Orleans.
