Up next we debut our new critically acclaimed segment "Is that from 50 shades of grey or contemporary Christian music lyrics" and then discuss "Pokemon Go", the app that got the indoor kids outdoors then Jeremy has a drone strike, and we want to know if allowing rodents in the house makes you a jerk.
Christy shares a heartbreaking story from her recent trip to Safeco Field, we find out at least one of our listeners is armed, and discuss the most recent goings on with the changing national conversation regarding gun control. We visit Seattle Pride Festival and Jeremy is feeling conflicted about it. Jeremy has business idea to keep the sex out of worship music, Christy fuels up the predator drone for a wedding themed drone strike, we face off in what's sure to be another taco soup level am I a jerk, and Jeremy has some timely space news regarding the Juno mission which will be entering orbit around Jupiter on July 4th.

We take a deeper dive into the world of cartoon eggplants and why some long time historians are frustrated over the recent popularity of Emoji.
