On today's show, Rich expressed his distaste at the idea of making movies "woke." In particular, he took umbrage at Marvel's decision to cast Natalie Portman as Thor in their upcoming movie based on the superhero. Rich offered his own ideas for what studios like Marvel should do in these scenarios.

"I thought gender was a construct, so why are we even worrying about male and female characters? Shouldn't they all just be non-binary? Shouldn't Thor come out and go, 'I have no genitals. I have no sex organs...I'm the God of Interpretation...is my hammer a hammer or is my hammer a vice?'"
