Good morning. In a little over an hour, Q & J will take your ears from around the world and launch the largest single movie podcast on Roland Emmerich’s Independence Day (ID4) in this history of mankind. Man-kind — that’s a word that our hosts are not to the catastrophe of a sequel, there’s nothing to be kind about. Anyway, we can’t be consumed by our petty differences anymore. We will be united in our common love for a Will Smith, Jeff Goldblum sci-fi buddy cop movie.

Perhaps it’s fate that a few weeks ago was the 4th of July, and we are once again fighting for your earholes and attention, not from tyranny, oppression, or persecution — but from annihilation. We’re fighting for our right to pod, to cast, to podcast a Jinxies episode. And should we win the day, the 4th of July will no longer be known as an American holiday, but as the day when the world declared in one voice: “We will not quietly Jinxies into the night! We will not vanish without a game time! We’re going to podcast on!”

Today, we Jinxies our Independence Day!
