In this week’s episode, the guys kick things off talking about artificial intelligence researchers trying to teach an AI to be a Dungeon Master. The show’s resident DM, Doug, weighs in on how cool this would be but also how difficult the concept seems given the highly improvisational nature of a round of Dungeons and Dragons. This leads to a discussion about some researchers who created an “AI Jesus” by feeding a bible to an AI and getting it to come up with “Bible-like verses”. The duo then move on to an article from Screenrant, Doug’s favorite website for news, which brings up a good point about the Rise of Skywalker. The article posits that Kylo should have seen the force ghost of Anakin Skywalker rather than Han Solo. Talk swings once more, this time to Jurassic Park and a new kids show on Netflix called Camp Cretaceous. Doug and Justin take turns poking holes in the premise as Doug lays out part of the story of the first season. Consider yourself spoiler alerted.

The throw-down pits Shang-Chi, the subject of an upcoming Marvel movie Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings, against The Iron Fist Danny Rand. The comics have had their say, well sort of, now the boys chime and a winner IS declared.
