The Generation Why Podcast
Summary: Unsolved murders, controversies, mysteries, conspiracies, as well as anything that impacts our culture. Each podcast, Justin & Aaron find a new topic and break it down. And, of course, we get in to the 'why' of it as well. Thanks for listening.
Melissa & Geoffrey join us to discuss the case of the West Memphis Three. Damien Echols, Jason Baldwin, & Jessie Misskelley were convicted of the murders of three 8 year-old boys.
We discuss the events of 9/11/01 and the 'Truther' movement that followed.
Dave joins us again to discuss recent UFC outcomes, future fight picks, marijuana in MMA, and the recent signing of the world's top female fighter, Ronda Rowsey.
We discuss The Walking Dead. What it is, how it translates from comic to cable television, where it's headed, and why we love it.
We discuss pet adoption, puppy mills, as well as the Missouri Prop B bill that the Governor and legislature re-wrote despite being passed overwhelmingly by voters.
We discuss Concealed Carry in Missouri, our experiences with the CCW class, and briefly touch on the Trayvon Martin case.
We discuss some strange places and things from around the world.
We discuss the John F. Kennedy assassination.
Our buddy Dave joins us as we discuss Jon Jones and his refusal to fight Chael Sonnen as well as who should stay and who should go as retirements are concerned in the UFC.
We talk about Nolan's Dark Knight Trilogy. It should be said, there are spoilers in here for those who have yet to see them.
We discuss privacy, as it relates to a right as a citizen of the USA, and whether or not losing it has been worth the price in this post-9/11 world.

We discuss Fedor's recent retirement, his place in all time MMA rankings, and UFC current greats. Note: During the podcast I mention the Barnett-Fedor fight that never happened as being under the Strikeforce promotion. This was simply a brain fart. I should have said Affliction instead. I also didn't get Julio Cesar Chavez's name correct. Sources: http://www.fightmatrix.com/mma-ranks/ http://www.sherdog.com/events
