The Boys, F*** You Alan Moore, Fortnite Championship, Instagram Meme Page Bans, and a Near-miss Asteroid

In this week's nerd news Steve and Ken discuss the review of Once Upon a Time in Hollywood found at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=txnyOatPvw0&t=21s.  We give our thoughts on the Zombieland 2 trailer and the great Amazon Prime show The Boys.  We dive into why the Watchmen showrunner has said F*** You to the original creator Alan Moore.  A 16 year old wins $3 million in the Fortnite championship and we are rethinking our entire lives.  We discuss the puzzling bans that Instagram has placed on some meme accounts.  Finally, we discuss how a near-miss asteroid only wiped some of us out.  We hope you enjoy.

As always we ask that you support the show in any way possible.  You can like, share, rate or comment on any of the various social media and podcast players.  Join the fun in our closed Facebook group at thenerdcantina.com/community, or become a patron on our Patreon page (https://www.patreon.com/thenerdcantina) where a pledge of as little as $1 will get you a free sticker.
