Craig and John are not robots. They are almost positive this is true. This week they break a long-standing rule to discuss the forbidden character to talk about on the show. They also venture into some awards shows, learn about a new award that is very appealing to both and check out some things. Also, since it is a nerd show, the Mandalorian gets a good discussion. 

Send them a note at WWNPodcast@gmail.com to let them know what you think. This is the way.

The good news is that Disney doesn't own this podcast (yet). Even better news: John and Craig talking about people's urge to ruin things, the greatest television shows of all time and why they can still stand today, Artists getting hosed by Sonic the Hedgehog, and they check out a lot of things to review and tell you about it. 

If you have something you think John and Craig should check out, let them know. They want to hear from you.

You can always reach out to the show at wwnpodcast@gmail.com or facebook.com/wordswithnerds, or hunt down Craig on Twitter @craigsorrell. Find John over at www.kesseljunkie.com and leave him some comments on his blog.

What do you think they're talking about? #AvengersEndgame of course. Did they love it? What did they love most about#AvengersEndgame? Are there any dangerous moments of apostasy when they express something less than love for #AvengersEndgame? Do they give away a lot of spoilers about #AvengersEndgame? (Yes.) Are they just trying to say #AvengersEndgame as many times as possible in an attempt to highlight that they're talking about #AvengersEndgame when they say #AvengersEndgame? (Yes.) Is it annoying to say #AvengersEndgame that many times? (Yes.)

If you have thoughts about #AvengersEndgame, send them a note at WWNPodcast@gmail.com

Go visit an awesome blog at www.kesseljunkie.com -- which only occasionally mentions #AvengersEndgame.

Be Craig's personal tormentor about #AvengersEndgame on Twitter @craigsorrell.

Before we could even finish musing on the firing of Colin Trevorrow, #Lucasfilm hired JJ Abrams to complete the #StarWars #SequelTrilogy, having him co-write and helm #EpisodeIX. What do we think?
