Black Mirrors and Dark Chocolates

The Buddies squeeze some Buddha’s Hand into S’mike’s take on The New Black cocktail and then explore the inspirations and hidden, disturbing implications of the much-lauded Black Mirror episode “USS Callister.”

Then it’s on to a late-night blind chocolate taste test, which  goes… not so great.
