That's right folks it's the Selfie Episode. The FanBrosShow has finally taken a good long look at itself, and we figured the only way to celebrate is to take a selfie. Since we have the one and only Jabari in the building why not utilize the great filmmaking skills of the young Howard alum and get him to join in the selfie madness. We get to the bottom of whether Jabari considers himself a Fanbro, what drives him as a documentarian, and Jabari gives us some crazy stories from his time interviewing every celebrity that you wish you knew.

The Chi Modu episode. Pronounced like it rhymes with Key, not like it rhymes with Bye which is exactly what Chi Modu should have done after Benhameen butchered his name like it was a prize steer. But no Chi didn't abandon the spaceship like some others in the past, he stayed on to break down the relationship between Hip-Hop and the Geek world, and how they are much closer than you would imagine. He also explains how he became a legend in the photography game, and so much more about life, following your dreams, and many more topics in this new episode. Chi Modu. Rhymes with tree, it's the life force that connects us all. Easy to remember right? Or so Benhameen would think... Tune in to this episode if only to hear the Butcher Of Names in all his glory.

Not only that but we also cover True Detective's "After You're Gone..." and The Walking Dead's "Still ". As this is the next to last episode of True Detective we have some worries of whether or not they can stick the ending of the first season.
