Do you know what today is? In the words of a certain 90's R&B group, it's our anniversary! That's right folks, it has been one whole year since you started rocking with the ladies of Outlaw Barz!

But first up we have to break down "The Queen's Justice", one of the most action packed and game changing episodes of Game Of Thrones. If you thought that Dany & Jon meeting was as good as it gets, wait until you hear Outlaw Barz own Deadly Diva break down what really matters in the episode. Plus Benha & Illa speak on Insecure and why it is simply one of the best shows on television, and how Power is still one of the most entertaining shows on television. What a conundrum.

If you are of a certain age, you may have played a certain side scrolling game where you fought, as member of the Belmont family, against Dracula and his minions. That game, you may or may not remember was called Castlevania. It spawned a ton of sequels, one of which Diva still plays. Word on the street is she was fond of the Belmont whip and those lovely flying crosses. But that is neither nor there. Because in this Episode of Outlaw Barz, Whip It Good, the ladies chat about the latest incarnation of Castlevania as presented by Netflix -- full of pretty new baes and rife with commentary about the evil that men do and corruption in the church. Anime Mentioned in this Episode: - Castlevania - Magical Girl Raising Project - Katsugeki TOUKEN RANBU Music: Intro: @killing-spree-1 Outro: @andrezoworks

The Secret Origin Of The Asian Sidekick? Well perhaps part one of the origin as we speak with Ki Hong Lee, the star of the upcoming horror flick Wish Upon.
