MLP S7E15: "Triple Threat"

9/11/2020
CLICK TO SUBSCRIBE ON YOUR FAVORITE PODCATCHER. There’s always a little bit of filler each season, but this episode managed to pack in a great friendship message, Spike shenanigans, and an amazing meta-bit, all at the same time. And also, we get to pit the majestic but a little clueless Thorax with the tactless, blunt honesty of Ember, and OF COURSE it leads to hilarious results. We’re not saying it’s the most groundbreaking episode of My Little Pony, but it’s still a pretty fun time! We’re...

MLP S7E14: "Fame and Misfortune"

9/4/2020
CONTENT WARNING: This episode contains discussions of grief and the loss of parents and loved ones. CLICK TO SUBSCRIBE ON YOUR FAVORITE PODCATCHER. Up until now, there hasn’t been an episode that directly confronted the issues with the fandom. And we would know, we’ve spent 6 and a seasons watching it. They’ve certainly flirted with the idea, but this week, the fandom is getting called out and it is terrific. The protests of Rarity, the Fluttershy redundancy, the criticism of Twilight’s...

MLP S7E13: "The Perfect Pear" (w/ Vin!)

8/28/2020
CONTENT WARNING: This episode contains discussions of grief and the loss of parents and loved ones. CLICK TO SUBSCRIBE ON YOUR FAVORITE PODCATCHER. Pony expert Vin LaBate of The Chimera joins us this week for one of My Little Pony’s most emotional and highest-rated episodes, and in the conversation as one of the best episodes in the series. On its face, the Apple siblings are just on a mini-quest to find out what the deal is with Pears and why the Apples hate them so much. But quickly we’re...

MLP S7E12: "Discordant Harmony" (w/ Sam!)

8/20/2020
CLICK TO SUBSCRIBE ON YOUR FAVORITE PODCATCHER. Discord superfan Sam Turley of Christmastide, Ohio is here this week to talk about our favorite chaotic draconequus. And unlike most Discord episodes, this time, he’s the one needing more introspection and truly growing as a creature. He also is the main character of the entire episode, if you count the six separate Discords in his house at any given time. And yet despite the hijinks, this is one of the most delightful and feelings-filled...

MLP S7E11: "Not Asking for Trouble" (w/ James!)

8/13/2020
CLICK TO SUBSCRIBE ON YOUR FAVORITE PODCATCHER. Our Pinkie Pie fan extraordinaire James Anderson joins us once again for hijinks aplenty, this time in Yakyakistan. The yaks are celebrating one of their biggest holidays and Pinkie’s been…”invited” to join in the festivities. There’s vanilla cake, music huts, and stories by the fire, until some ritual stomping triggers an avalanche. That’s when the yaks, stubborn as they are, refuse Pinkie’s help to get their village out from under the snow....

MLP S7E10: "A Royal Problem"

8/6/2020
CLICK TO SUBSCRIBE ON YOUR FAVORITE PODCATCHER. Friendship problems and the Cutie Map are a mainstay of the past couple seasons, so when Twilight is in a panic-derived shock to start this episode, it seems like overkill. But then you realize that Starlight Glimmer is being called…for a friendship problem…AT CELESTIA AND LUNA’S CASTLE. Sure enough, her worst fears are realized when it turns out the most powerful sisters in Equestria are having some issues. Starlight has some bold ideas of how...

MLP S7E9: "Honest Apple"

7/30/2020
CLICK TO SUBSCRIBE ON YOUR FAVORITE PODCATCHER. This week, Rarity is hosting a fashion show to benefit some up-and-coming designers with huge creativity, and she’s invited fashion’s biggest ponies to judge. There’s Photo Finish, Hoity Toity and…Applejack? Yep, Rarity’s actually got an interesting idea of how to bring Applejack’s honesty and practicality to the design competition. But Applejack instead thinks it’s gonna be a competition for who can make the best clothes Applejack would wear,...

MLP S7E8: "Hard to Say Anything"

7/23/2020
CLICK TO SUBSCRIBE ON YOUR FAVORITE PODCATCHER. Returning guest Kent Blue of the Roll to Play Network is our guest for the most adorable and ridiculous episode of the season so far. Adorable, because Big Mac has a crush on a pony from Starlight’s old village, and the awkward sweetness is just lovely. Ridiculous, because there’s a rival for Big Mac’s potential pony love, and HE LOOKS AND SOUNDS LIKE JUSTIN BIEBER. Not even joking, he’s got ridiculous 2010’s bangs and likes to flip his hair....

MLP S7E7: "Parental Glideance"

7/16/2020
CLICK TO SUBSCRIBE ON YOUR FAVORITE PODCATCHER. The amazing and delightful Evan Tess Murray of This Planet Needs a Name and Light Hearts joins us this week for some serious Pony Therapy and ridiculous sight gags as Scootaloo slingshots her way (literally) into Dash’s parents’ house. They’re instant BFF’s, since Bow Hothoof and Windy Whistles are truly bigger fans of Rainbow Dash than even Scootaloo, and that takes effort. In fact, they’re such big fans that Rainbow Dash has maybe kinda sorta...

MLP S7E6: "Forever Filly"

7/9/2020
CLICK TO SUBSCRIBE ON YOUR FAVORITE PODCATCHER. This week we’re back with an episode about the most polarizing pony in our long review of these ponysodes. Yep, it’s Rarity time, and once again, it’s time for Macintosh to try to defend Rarity in her obnoxious friendship decisions. Specifically, she’s all up in Sweetie Belle’s business after realizing her time at the different shops has left her with little to no time with her little sister. Which is sweet and lovely, but Rarity doesn’t...

MLP S7E5: "Fluttershy Leans In"

7/2/2020
CLICK TO SUBSCRIBE ON YOUR FAVORITE PODCATCHER. The outstanding return guest Claudia Elvidge, creator of The Beacon and Soulborn City, joins us to talk about FLUTTERSHY BEING ASSERTIVE AND WE LOVE IT. We’re outspokenly pro-Fluttershy on this show, and we especially love watching Fluttershy’s growth as a pony. So this episode is an absolute delight, as she finally has a reason to pursue her biggest ambition - making a sanctuary for all the adorable critters in Ponyville. Fluttershy has a...

MLP S7E4: "Rock Solid Friendship"

6/25/2020
CLICK TO SUBSCRIBE ON YOUR FAVORITE PODCATCHER. Our namesake has returned. It’s time for Maud Pie’s episode. Or, should we say, Doctor Pie, because Maud has achieved her dream - she has a rocktorate. And now, after having done so much hard work over so many long hours at the rock farm, Maud is ready to find a new place to settle. Will she choose Ghastly Gorge, with its amazing assortment of jasper emerald? Or is Maud looking for something more than amazing rocks…like maybe friendship? Her...

MLP S7E3: "A Flurry of Emotions"

6/19/2020
CLICK TO SUBSCRIBE ON YOUR FAVORITE PODCATCHER: In most other seasons we might write this off as a filler episode. It’s certainly not a pinnacle moment for the show. BUT FLURRY HEART IS SO ADORABLE SO WHO CARES. Seriously, this li’l foal is the most adorable pony that ever did pony in Equestria, and this episode is her moment to shine. Sometimes literally! And also, Twilight has to learn that being a good, responsible aunt means not trying to also do twelve other things when all your cute as...

MLP S7E2: "All Bottled Up"

6/11/2020
CLICK TO SUBSCRIBE ON YOUR FAVORITE PODCATCHER: Patti aka @VixxiKitsune joins us to talk about maybe the greatest Pony Therapy episode ever. Like, LITERALLY, Starlight Glimmer is bottling up her rage and frustration, and it saps her of her magical energy. That…that is just TOO real. But at least we also get some ridiculous magical shenanigans from Starlight’s BFF, Trixie, and a Mane 6 subplot that is both precious and hilarious, all at once. We’re talking about ”All Bottled Up” this week on...

MLP S7E1: "Celestial Advice"

6/4/2020
Hey, everyone. We are enraged and heartbroken by the murders of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Tony McDade, David McAtee, and countless other innocent lives, and the violent police actions against protestors in our country. Black lives matter. The situation in our country is grave, and while we hope we can be something light for anyone who needs it, we do not want to take away from the important work of activists and protestors fighting against police brutality. If you are able, please donate...

MLP S6E26: "To Where and Back Again - Part 2" (w/ Jon!)

2/7/2020
Find us at: iTunes Spotify Patreon YouTube Jon Baley (Gumbie Cat Networks!) joins us for part 2 of our finale, chronicling the exploits of our redeemed pony villains as they face Queen Chrysalis - without magic. That’s right, Starlight and Discord are both unable to use their superpowered skills to save everypony, and it’s going to take some real ingenuity and courage to figure out a way to win this battle. Is Starlight up to the task? Can Discord get past his arrogance and single pursuit of...

MLP S6E25: "To Where and Back Again - Part 1"

2/6/2020
Find us at: iTunes Spotify Patreon YouTube We’re kicking off our season finale solo this week as we focus on a fearsome foursome of secondary characters responsible for saving Equestria! Starlight Glimmer’s going back to her old village to help with a festival, but after a meltdown, she comes back to find Ponyville…acting weird. And she’s right to be concerned - it turns out some nefarious plans of Queen Chrysalis are afoot. The Changeling Army is back and plotting to take down the...

MLP S6E24: "Top Bolt" (w/ Dan!)

1/31/2020
Find us at: iTunes Spotify Patreon YouTube Daniel Spencer (Bike Brigade! Concept!) joins us to talk all things Rainbow Dash! Though, unlike most Dash episodes, this time she’s actually 20% more awesome than most everypony. Granted, she’s having to go back to Wonderbolts Academy when she just left to chillax with friends. But the newest crop of Wonderbolt hopefuls have two promising candidates who also have a friendship problem that’s a little more complex than we’ve ever seen. Can Rainbow...

MLP S6E23: "Where the Apple Lies" (w/ Vin!)

1/23/2020
Find us at: iTunes Spotify Patreon YouTube Vin of The Chimera joins us this week for one of the best Apple-sodes that ever did Apple. I mean, it’s enough just to have an Apple family-centric episode, but to get li’l Applejack and teen Macintosh? AND MACINTOSH WON’T STOP TALKING?! Six seasons into this venture, the writers decided to go have some serious fun with the Apples and Filthy Rich, and it all comes together in this episode. We review “Where the Apple Lies” on this episode of...
