12/2/2018
More
Episode 18 of WIGWIONAWS finds the boys attempting to really just punch out a quick podcast and finding they are incapable of talking for less than an hour. Hearken to Max being rendered speechless by the injustice of Prime's shunning of Patriot and Michael attempting to claim that BBC's Informer is not a documentary about mainstream and quickly-forgotten mid-90s UK rap. The podcast contains spoilers for season 2 of the Sinner and minor spoilers for season 1 of Patriot. 00:00 - Intro 03:40 -...

In the October offering of WIGWIONAWS (yes, I know it's November), Max and Michael finally get to the heart of what everyone wants to hear and talk Grand Designs. There's some other stuff in there too, mostly about Max's Disney-Marvel conspiracy theories, how Max and Michael format the spreadsheets they record their viewing habits in and failing to correctly guess how long the podcast would be. There are spoilers for Star Trek Discovery and small spoilers for Daredevil. 00:00 - Intro 02:01 -...

In this episode Michael and Max are overwhelmed by the sheer volume of TV that is piling up and throw structure to the wind in favour of just trying to talk about as much TV as possible.

There are no spoilers about anything in this episode unless you didn't know that somebody gets murdered in The Bridge or that GLOW is about wrestling.

Episode 11 - Better Late Than Never?

Apologies for the lateness of this episode, folks, it's been quite the whirlwind at WIGWIONAWS HQ recently. Michael and I recorded this a few weeks ago but I've only just been able to edit and upload it. Whilst this is obviously not great the good news is we're recording another one on Tuesday so you get a double shot in April! Anyway, onto the contents. This episode we look at Save Me, The Mortified Guide, Mosaic, Halt and Catch Fire and Altered Carbon. It's all spoiler free except for a...

Episode 10 - Throwing the Book Out of the Window

2/3/2018

January and the end of December were a touch crazy for new TV so Michael and Max have abandoned their normal format for this episode and are just trying to get through as much of the things they've been watching as they possibly can. The episode is spoiler-free (beyond the fact we may talk about events central to the premise of the show or that happen in the first episode) so no worries on that front. If you're looking for a new thing to try out or to catch up on some hidden gems from last...

Episode 06a - All Hail Wally Brando

10/21/2017
More
A small bonus episode in which Michael and Max have a spoiler-filled discussion of Twin Peaks - The Return. I'm not joking, it's chock-full of spoilers so if you haven't watched all of The Return then give this one a miss until you have. Unless you don't plan on watching it. In which case, why do you care? Go and do something else. The dog needs walking and the dishes need doing. Stop reading this and do that.
