SoL-Mates #30: Master Ninja II and Recognizing Toxic Relationships

SoL-Mates #29 Master Ninja I and Dos and Don'ts for Dating Dudes in Vans

We have only one thing to say to this week - and that's "ba-ba-ba-ba-ba-ba-bwaaaaaaah." If you can't deduce this episode is about Master Ninja I from that, then you're probably listening to the wrong podcast. Or, it's just a terrible representation of Gypsy-singing. Probably the latter.

SoL-Mates #26: East Meets Watts and Interracial Couples

We venture into the Cinematic Titanic universe with our newest episode! What happens when you combine blaxsploitation films with the martial arts craze of the 70s?
