Then we move on to discuss the new VR experience Avengers: Damage Control, we’ll take a look at a new promotion that will pay participants $1,000 to binge watch Disney movies and take a look at a heart warming experience by Captain Marvel herself Brie Larson at a recent convention.
This week Michelle and Joe delve into the labor disputes at Disneyland Paris that left the park littered with trash, we offer praise to Captain Marvel for breaking the one billion dollar box office mark, then we talk about the fiasco that the pre-sale ticket experience was for Avengers End Game this week, all part of our Disney Detective segment. In our entertainment news section we look at Netflix both raising it’s prices and getting some support from the US Department of Justice in what is shaping up to be a possible fight with the Academy for eligibility at the Academy Awards. Then we jump over to the music industry and talk about some health concerns associated with Mick Jagger of the Rolling Stones and a new album and tour coming from Celine Dion. We finish up with two great new picks in our Insightful Picks section including a new show suggestion from Michelle and another excellent podcast suggestion from Joe.
