Former Marine, Alex Hollings is welcomed back to the program and after a brief conversation about life as a reporter and reviewing military gear the conversation quickly goes off the rails. Jack and Alex continue to plan their “epic comic book podcast” with no date set, They quickly divert into topics such as – how pop culture is shaped by mythology, polygamy in foreign countries, the debate between good vs. evil and how the world is really filled with shades of gray, and why the human consciousness might not actually matter. Jack asks Alex to share his thoughts on Navy pilots spotting potential UFO’s, and trying to find an answer to what the hell those pilots actually saw.
