Buckle up! For the 66th episode of the WhoDatJedi podcast, your hosts -- Aaron Svoboda (@Aaron_Svoboda), Alfredo Narvaez (@NOLA_Fredo) and David Gladow (@davegladow) -- tackle the controversy surrounding Gina Carano's firing from "The Mandalorian." For longtime listeners of the show, there should be little surprise that the group condemns hate speech and therefore falls into a stance of supporting Disney's decision to part ways with the actress. But the situation does spark a ton of discussion. When considering tolerance, where does one draw the line, both as a company trying to make money, but also as a consumer trying to do the ethical thing? Is cancel culture a problem, or does it have its place? And does boycotting a show or movie -- for any reason -- even make fundamental sense? Where does idealism take a backseat to practicality? Give us a listen and let us know what you think.
