Kyle returns to the studio as Gavin briefly recaps his jaunt to Vancouver while presenting the greatest souvenir ever (in DIU Podcast history). Jack rants about Pokemon Go, and how the augmented-reality game is causing trouble in real life. Meanwhile, Gavin talks about the #AllLivesMatter debate and why it’s a shitty hashtag despite the good intentions of the message.
Afterwards, Jack talks about the do’s and don’ts of a first date in the latest segment of Kao Lui Corner.
Check out some of the weirdest incidents surrounding Pokemon Go.
A brief explanation about why the #AllLivesMatter hashtag is controversial.
The story Jack mentioned about the man walking onto the highway in an attempt to catch a Pikachu turns out to be false; the story is published by Cartel Press, a satirical website known for publishing hoaxes.
I tried looking up the story Jack mentioned about a mob of people flooding a highway trying to catch a Mewtwo in Pokemon Go. It seems that story was also fabricated. The real story is that the mob was created from a Black Lives Matter protest in Oakland.
Pokemon Go released officially in Canada on July 17, 2016 – Jack has since downloaded the game.
