Episode 56 - Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire

The Young Podawans' Harry Potter vs Dark Tower Reading Challenge continues! This week we chat about Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire!

Episode 53 - Twin Peaks Season 1

Damn good podcast!


Episode 52 - The Defenders

It's been over two years since Marvel's Netflix series began. There's been some highs, some lows, and some really, really yellow-glowy fisty lows, but now it's come to this - The Defenders! After two years, five stand alone series, and four new heroes, did it all pay off in the end? Much like the road leading here, there were many ups and downs in The Defenders, and we're chatting about all of them. And much like the Korra comic we discussed last episode, it's a bit of missed opportunity....


Episode 49 - Doctor Who Season 10

With the announcement of the New Doctor, we decided to step back into the TARDIS and catch up on the Doctor's most recent adventures. In short - we liked Bill a lot, but it was still a very Moffaty season for the most part. Still - we have MANY THOUGHTS. Aside from the Who-Talk, we have also an update on our reading challenge and on our watermelon beer preferences.


Episode 44 - Steven Universe Season 2
