We're one episode away from the 600th Insanity Check. But before that, Kriss is running a gauntlet of podcasting with 7 days straight of podcasting and what better way to bring that run to a close than with the person he talks to most with: Host of the Unanimous Decision Podcast, Dpalm

Look the world didn't end with Dpalm being a guest this week but you know we can never just do a regular show. So we threw out the show notes and we covered a bunch of random (but oddly related things) from the Oscars still having a problem with black movies to Michael Steele realizing his party is racist to the stupidity with the "gun debate".  We even throw in some comic book talk. Like I said, we were all over the place but it was a great show so make sure you subscribe and listen.

The last of our Oscar Awards shows before the actual Oscars. We’re discussing the top dog awards (Best Director and Best Picture). But before we get to all that, we have to discuss what we’ve been hinting at the last 2 shows and has become a reality: The Oscar Voters are full of shit.

We discuss the articles that have come out about anonymous voters admitting to things like not even watching Get Out and the bias that we’ve seen since before OscarsSoWhite. It also explains a lot of the strange nominations we’ve seen (Mary J Blige got nominated but Jason Mitchell didn’t? Why is Denzel nominated?).
So who do we think will take Best Director and Best Picture? We talk about who we are rooting for and why we know it just won’t happen. Maybe we’ll be surprised.
We’ll be back after the Oscars to discuss the winners and also the films that didn’t make the cut but we still want to discuss (And we’ll finally have that Three Billboards discussion as well).
