Episode #61 – House of Cards, DC Controversy and the Beerfest

Episode #61 – House of Cards, DC Controversy and the Beerfest

Ginny Tonic and Charlie return from the Cincy Winter Beerfest full of stories and a few of them can even be shared on this week’s show. After a quick catch up on all the fun, these two cover the new Netflix original series House of Cards and discuss what this show (and shows like it) might mean for television’s future. From there they dip a toe into the hot water of the recent DC Comics controversy. The company invited controversial (and quite homophobic) Orson Scott Card to write the first few issues of a new Superman series and reactions have been all over the news.  Our Bottoms Up segment comes directly from the floor of Beerfest as Tom Aguero from Queen City Drinks joins us for a great beer review.  From there we close with some music and serve up a very full show this week.
