SPOILER WARNING: CONTAINS SPOILERS!
This week the word is Bicentennial. The nerds reflect on having recorded 200 of these shows, and share their memories of the national bicentennial in 1976. Then they talk about the custom Loonacy deck, featuring 24 of Goodloe’s cartoons of Keith & Andy, which superfan Leila put together for the occasion, and which you can actually buy! Andy reports on the status of the newest Fluxx decks in production, and talks about what subject matter he won’t consider turning into a version of Fluxx. Andy talks about Rick & Morty Fluxx, which has just been released, but only in Polish. Keith talks about a show called Nikita, which leads to discussions of other remakes, reboots, and spin-offs, and Andy mentions enjoying a web series with a real lawyer reacting to fictional legal proceedings.
