This week, we talk about PewDiePie backlash and how the YouTube personality’s “jokes” are part of a much bigger problem online. Also:

  • Some insight into the staying power of the Cantina Band
  • Sen. Kid Rock (R-Mich.) ???
  • Is Future “dad rock” or was that a reaching argument forged without proper consideration? 
  • Oscar predictions that were in no way influenced by Vegas odds!
