World Class Bullshitters: Star Wars - The B-List Property

"This week we cover the colossal success of The Avengers and the embarrassment that is Star Wars."

If Jim Fear shows you that you can have a good influence on the culture with a one-man band podcast, then the World Class Bullshitters show you what a small, dedicated crew focused on a mission can do- and in rather short time. They've been at this for just a couple years of weekly podcasts, and now they're shaping pop culture narratives.

No, I'm not kidding. These goofs are actually having a real impact that's counter-acting the stupid amounts of money spent on PR by Mouse Wars, Fake Trek, and many other SJW-converged pop culture franchises. They can, and should, take credit for spreading the word on how back The Last Jedi was before it went into its first weekend. They broke wide the utter failure of Mouse Wars merch rotting on the shelves. They didn't even try, and they got some other fan channels to out themselves as Mouse Wars shills.

And their success emboldened others to go this route, to varying success.

They're being what they want to see, and what they want to see is pure fan love with an utter intolerance for bullshit and crap. The takeaway? Be what you want to see, own that, and waive that proud and loud on your flag flown high. The Bullshitters paved the way for a more love-focused engagement with the stuff we love, something not nihilistic like Plinkett (Red Letter Media) is at heart or selling out for trinkets and head-pats from Culty Kathy.

And that's our highlights for the week.
