**NOTE** The show "Rick and Morty" is part of Cartoon Network's [Adult Swim] and as such, many of the topics on the actual show (and by extension, some of the discussion on this particular podcast episode) may not be suitable for younger listeners.  Think PG-13.

WARNING: SPOILERS FOR SEASON 1 & 2 OF "RICK AND MORTY"

So, have you heard about this cartoon called "Rick and Morty"?  If you've listened to the podcast for awhile, you've certainly heard us refer to it before.  In this episode, Andy Farnsworth, Adam Thomas and Aaron Zundel go in-depth on what we think is one of the most brilliant shows on TV right now.

You'd be hard-pressed to find a better combination of humor, deep-thinking moments, philosophical questions/debate, weirdness, sci-fi, improv, creativity and hidden meaning anywhere than in this show created by Dan Harmon ("Community").

So whether you're already a fan, or just curious to know what all the fuss is about, have a listen and prepare yourself to laugh and think.

Also, special thanks to Will Schoder for letting us use audio of his YouTube video "Rick and Morty - Finding Meaning in Life".  The video can be found at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ez1rWBPznEc&t=29s

"The Dark Tower" finally hits movie theaters after years of waiting by fans of the book series.  It's the latest big screen adaptation of the many, many writings to come from the mind of author Stephen King. 

In this episode of the podcast, Andy Farnsworth, Aaron Zundel and Tysen Webb talk about the new movie starring Matthew McConaughey (as the Man in Black) and Idris Elba (as the Gunslinger), what they liked and disliked about it, whether it helps or hurts to have read the books before seeing the movie, and if we think we'll get more movies in the series.

They also discuss why fans feel so strongly about "The Dark Tower" series, how it ties into many of King's other works, why King's writings seem to be difficult to successfully adapt to film, and just how prolific the man is at churning out content (perhaps you'll be surprised by some of the films that were based on his works).
