This week on Hard NOC Life, Dominic and Keith discuss the effect Coronavirus panic has had on the nerd pop landscape.
Since the episode was recorded on Friday afternoon, events such as Emerald City Comic Con in Seattle and South by Southwest in Austin have been indefinitely postponed. MGM has moved the opening of the anticipated 007 movie, No Time to Die, from April to November, and theaters around the globe are shutting their doors while the epidemic spreads. Meanwhile, Asian Americans are having to find ways to deal with the anti-Asian racism that’s spreading faster than the virus, such as sing Bowen Yang’s “Profiled Asian” verse from SNL while they wash their hands. Later they break down the Batmobile from Matt Reeves’ upcoming The Batman, and share what’s nerd poppin’ — for Dominic, the latest issue of DC’s Lois Lane comic and for Keith, it’s the premiere of Devs on Hulu.
