This is the last episode with Russ in the Nerd Basement for a couple of months. But don’t worry he will still be joining us remote from Florida. This week we discuss the death of Kobe Bryant. We talk a little bit about the new HBO series Avenue 5. We talk about a new line of action figures. And then we finish things off with our new segment; Picking Apart Picard, where we discuss the latest episode of the CBS All Access show Star Trek: Picard.
