The Oscars are stupid and pointless, much like the title suggests. Getting awards for doing your job is kind of like… well, it must be like something. The big topic this year is how there are no black nominees, and Chris Rock did an average at best job with this ripe material. There’s really not much to say about this, but it’s topical and coming up with keywords for search engines is annoying so… The Oscars is the subject at hand this week!
Far more noticeable than the lack of anything interesting to say about The Oscars, however, is that this week’s show is shorter than usual. It also has two fewer hosts than normal. Yes, it’s finally come to this: it’s just Ben and a microphone this week. Why? Because a proper podcast couldn’t be recorded. Why? Because Ben was in the hospital yet again. Why? Because he had more stones left in his body and they once again blocked his bile ducts. So, there was no way to record an episode this week unless Ben did it alone on Sunday night when he got home from the hospital. So that’s exactly what he did. Why one man is so dedicated to such a pointless endeavor is both inspiring as a testament to doing what you love, and offensive as a waste of resources. But it’s done, so here it is.
