  the Intolerable number 255 episodi july [TS]

  2015 welcome back everybody to the [TS]

  uncomfortable i am your host Jason Snell [TS]

  we're going to do something unusual last [TS]

  week we did four episodes that were all [TS]

  part of episode 255 and this will be [TS]

  considered subepisode ER fifth episode [TS]

  255 last last week we spent nearly three [TS]

  hours talking about superheroes and [TS]

  advocating for 64 different heroes and [TS]

  we got by the end of the weekend we got [TS]

  down to 32 so we're going to take a [TS]

  break this week we're not going to do it [TS]

  do a new episode this week we're kinda [TS]

  tuckered out after all of the superhero [TS]

  talk but we'll be back next week with a [TS]

  brand new episode in the meantime if you [TS]

  have listened to the superhero episode [TS]

  or if you haven't you might want to go [TS]

  back and take the time and do that we [TS]

  are offering a chance for you to [TS]

  participate in the next round the next [TS]

  episode of the summer superhero [TS]

  spectacular won't be next week it'll be [TS]

  in early August probably early to mid [TS]

  august and for the next round we're [TS]

  going to have some new advocate some of [TS]

  the old advocates will return they'll be [TS]

  the same old judges making arbitrary [TS]

  decisions however i will not be breaking [TS]

  the ties [TS]

  instead you will be breaking the ties [TS]

  through a popular vote and will reveal [TS]

  the popular vote in that episode in [TS]

  addition the judges will be swayed [TS]

  perhaps by your arguments and here's how [TS]

  you do that go to the incomparable [TS]

  dot-com / 255 and you'll see a link to [TS]

  the voting and you'll go to a page it's [TS]

  google form and you can put in your [TS]

  choices for all 32 matchups in the next [TS]

  round and there's room for you to put in [TS]

  some of your arguments for why a certain [TS]

  hero should advance into the round of 16 [TS]

  so do that there you can also get a look [TS]

  at the complete bracket from the [TS]

  incomparable calm / 255 and it will [TS]

  definitely be stuff that you will hear [TS]

  in that next set of episodes or episode [TS]

  let's be honest [TS]

  out of episodes because we can't shut up [TS]

  and it will go on for a long time anyway [TS]
