Fagan and Krista join Lopez Radio to discuss the results of this year’s San Diego Comic Con.  What was revealed? Was it awesome?  Is SDCC a madhouse that is hard to deal with?  All of the above?  We attempt to answer these questions with as little ignorance as possible!

051 On The Road Again

Another episode of Lopez Radio on the road.  Krista recorded with me as we drove back from the hit or miss type of beautiful panhandle of Florida.  We try to dissect why people like to pile into these overcrowded, over-industrialized towns on the water as well as dig into our own little universe.  The sound quality is different than normal but, hey, we were recording on an iPhone voice memo app.  Quit your bitching and give us your time.  Much love to the audience and their support!

Lopez and Sheets wrap up their World Cup coverage for 2014 on Lopez Radio.  Though starting off topic, we get to a lot on this episode including our favorite parts of the World Cup, the Lionel Messi weirdness, the outlook of Soccer in the U.S., and much more.  This has been fun to cover and a big thanks to everyone that has been providing feedback and listening to the show.  I promise to keep putting out content because I can and will, regardless.

After battling many fronts on the internet, Krista joins me to discuss the latest ruling by the Supreme Court to give  Hobby Lobby (and who knows how many other companies) the freedom of religion when it comes to contraception requirements of the Affordable Care Act.  We discuss the finer points of this decision and the possible future ramifications it may bring, the state of internet/facebook debating, and much more.

P.L.U.R. **Spoilers: Game of Thrones (Part 1)

It’s a combination of forces as Lopez Radio comes together with The Principled Uncertainty Podcast to **SPOIL** Game of Thrones (The Books and the TV Show). We called it Principled Lopez Uncertainty Radio!  Will joins me and Tyler for a deep discussion on how the show is doing, how the books are coming along, and some of our theories as to what is going to happen next in the books and the show.  It’s a lot of fun but if you don’t want the story **SPOILED ** for you, then you may want to steer clear.  You can find PART 2 on Tyler’s Principled Uncertainty Podcast page that I’ve linked below.  Do enjoy!

GO HERE FOR PART 2! Should be Up later today!
