00:00:52   talk but we'll be back next week with a [TS]

00:00:54   brand new episode in the meantime if you [TS]

00:00:57   have listened to the superhero episode [TS]

00:01:07   episode of the summer superhero [TS]

00:01:08   spectacular won't be next week it'll be [TS]

00:01:11   in early August probably early to mid [TS]

00:01:13   august and for the next round we're [TS]

00:01:16   going to have some new advocate some of [TS]

00:01:18   the old advocates will return they'll be [TS]

00:01:20   the same old judges making arbitrary [TS]

00:01:22   decisions however i will not be breaking [TS]

00:01:25   the ties [TS]

00:01:26   instead you will be breaking the ties [TS]

00:01:29   through a popular vote and will reveal [TS]

00:01:31   the popular vote in that episode in [TS]

00:01:34   addition the judges will be swayed [TS]

00:01:37   perhaps by your arguments and here's how [TS]

00:01:40   you do that go to the incomparable [TS]

00:01:41   dot-com / 255 and you'll see a link to [TS]

00:01:46   the voting and you'll go to a page it's [TS]

00:01:49   google form and you can put in your [TS]

00:01:51   choices for all 32 matchups in the next [TS]

00:01:55   round and there's room for you to put in [TS]

00:01:57   some of your arguments for why a certain [TS]

00:02:00   hero should advance into the round of 16 [TS]

00:02:03   so do that there you can also get a look [TS]

00:02:05   at the complete bracket from the [TS]

00:02:07   incomparable calm / 255 and it will [TS]

00:02:10   definitely be stuff that you will hear [TS]

00:02:16   out of episodes because we can't shut up [TS]

00:02:18   and it will go on for a long time anyway [TS]
