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.

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.
