Welcome to another Crusade from Words With Nerds. Is this the one? No, but one host did choose wisely and get the right Grail for this episode. This week, Craig and John do not cross the seal and sit down to discuss Star Wars not having a plan, hypocritical nerds (again), solving a brewery problem Craig has been having, and ponder if one can pass the Snyder Maru. Also in this episode, one hosts believes in second chances, the other thinks one was enough. Craig and John check out some things and review them for your entertainment. By listening to this show, you have chosen wisely
