New Satellite Show Episode 10: Clarification of the Pigs

In an episode sure to get the Panel of Experts banned in Denmark, we discuss a controversial law in that country. The topic changes to the recent casting announcements for the "Man of Steel" sequel, which may see us banned from movie theaters. This month's Yakmala film is "Revenge of the Red Baron," a movie that hurt Clint and Dawn deeply and gave rise to the cinematic archetype of "The Lou." Some Olympics coverage may have occurred over at our sports desk, but it may have been further clarification of the "Happy Birthday" copyright situation. Host: Erik. Panel of Experts: Rob, Clint, Queta, Louis, Dante, Duane, Dawn, Justintin
