Weekly Debate

Last week The results are in. In the unfortunate, or very fortunate, case of a zombie apocalypse, our dear listeners favor a nurse over a sharpshooter to keep them company. The polls were incredibly close. Shall we propose a sharpshooter who is also a nurse? Or a nurse who is also a sharpshooter? The possibilities are endless.

This week "Are dream sequence endings a total movie ruiner, or a solid twist ending?"

Weigh in on our weekly debate by hitting us up via Facebook, Twitter or Instagram, @HackorSlash. You can also share your opinions with us by shooting us an email to feedback@hackorslash.com.
