The Greatest Generation Ep 182: Nurk Goatse (DS9 S1E4)


When the inhabitants of DS9 come down with a case of flop-sweat aphasia, O'Brien has to be thinking that the sexy part comes next. But when the word salad is followed by a deadly main course, Kira turns to kidnapping as a last resort. Does the Federation have enough people to fix DS9? Is it possible to hug the sick out of someone? Can Odo turn himself into cat litter? It's the episode that does not enjoy a gentle touch.

Minority Korner

OoooOOOOOooooOOoo... it's a little past Halloween, but the wonder twins have got the spirit! They are bringing you a Spoooootacular Episode. Nnekay has got her candle set up which reminds James of The Craft and our girl Rachel True- who actually reads Tarot Cards. Nnekay recently watched The Craft and she was reminded of super sexy giant windbreakers and khakis... and some weird problematic themes exhibited in the movie which might speak to the climate we're currently dealing with in Hollywood. James is living that #blessed life and got to see a screening of Thor: Ragnorok. He literally had to use some mind trips to expand time to make it in time. He says it's amazing and we all need to rush out to go see it. They also talk about how the NFL keeps fucking up! This time they have Justin Timberlake performing the half time show at the Super Bowl. Why is this a tragedy? You might remember a little thing called "nipplegate". Nnekay and James break it down why this is a mess and a disrespect to Janet Jackson. In James' Korner, he needs help, yet again with side eyeing his heroes. This time it's Kevin Spacey. James' unpacks sexual assault and why Kevin Spacey's coming out is a distraction and how to deal when your hero fails you. In Nnekay's Korner, she is so tried and sick of people taking google for granted and wants to give some tips on how to take research seriously! She talks bias, and how to truly understand what you are reading. Enjoy the episode!

Tights and Fights Ep 65: Braun Strowman's magic healing garbage

Hal, Mike and Danielle
Hal Lublin
Danielle Radford
Mike Eagle

Two WWE legends are set to be in the ring once again!

Shane McMahon and Kurt Angle will be the captains for each of their respective brands. So what can we hope for this match now that the nostalgia pop has worn off for both of them? We’ll take a look.

Plus, Nia Jax, Stephanie McMahon and Samoa Joe are finally back on TV! What’s the best way to make sure they succeed? How did Braun Strowman Survive death by trash compactor? Wouldn’t we all love a friendship like Sami Zayn and Kevin Owens?

Main Event

Darren Young, Summer Rae and Emma have all been fired from WWE. This sort of thing comes frequently in the modern WWE. But is this a sign of a really stacked roster, or that WWE isn’t putting people in the best position to succeed? And out of the three of them which one has the best shot to continue their work as a wrestler?

Hosted by Hal Lublin, Danielle Radford and Mike Eagle.

Produced by Julian Burrell for Maximum Fun.

If you wanna talk about more wrestling throughout the week be sure to join us on Facebook or @TightsFights on Twitter.
