We try to break our cold opening record (I don’t think we quite made it). Some feel good news about a couple who got some really nice wedding photos, some random news about live action Mulan, and then Brandon tells us why wrestling is just objectively better than anything you’re watching right now.

Big Boss Keith Chow joins us for an extra special 81st episode of the F’n Do It Cast!

We do not break our cold open time record.

We talk about the various Batmen before Jamie fumbles through news about non-US citizen students now being able to enroll into online only college classes without fear of being deported. We learn that Velma from Scooby Doo is canonically gay. Keith geeks out about millennials discovering Pearl Jam, Brandon considers getting into wood work, and Jamie geeks out about Kamen Rider’s big North American debut.

Finally, the meat of the episode, Keith gives a full throated defense of Hamilton. We also come up with an even better musical.

And here’s Keith’s podcast on Hamilton back in 2016

Olympus comes back with beta software that lets you use their micro four thirds systems as a webcam... with a catch. Halle Berry backs off from taking a role as a trans man. Kanye announces his candidacy but he’s missed the filing date for a number of states to get on the ballot so “you don’t have the votes, you don’t have the votes!” Brandon geeks out about setting up a regular work out routine. And then we rant about Hamilton for an hour.
