What happened? Why does everything good always wither and die, Brewskis? HBO Max had arguably the best thing in streaming going -- but had to ruin it all with a Discovery+ crossover. Heralded by the unceremonious cancellation of Bat Girl, will this cosmic shift in the streaming space work or nah? Also, and equally controversially, the word sp*z has come under the spotlight as Lizzo and Beyonce have felt the heat. Apparently, the word has been used as an ableist slur across the pond. Should these artists feel the need to change their art if there was no mal intent or is it a simple fix to be more inclusive? Big controversies, big changes, and big flavors from the Texas Rattlesnake himself, Stone Cold Steve Austin (via El Segundo Brewing Company). Cheers! *Beer of the Week* El Segundo Brewing Company American Lager and Broken Skull IPA
