MLP S4E20: "Leap of Faith" (w/ Sarah!)

Find us at: iTunes Google Play Spotify Patreon We’re back from vacation and we’ve got a fantastic episode for you! Diana’s sister Sarah arrives again to talk about our second appearance of those fabulous fibbers, the Flim Flam brothers. Granny tries to jump in a pie tin, Applejack tells a lie, Sarah and Diana talk some family dysfunction, and we’re all strong, independent women. Enjoy a silly and fun Apple family episode with our own family! Macintosh & Maud have a Patreon! If you contribute...


MLP S4E19: "For Whom the Sweetie Belle Toils"

Find us at: iTunes Google Play Spotify Patreon This week the amazingly talented podcast sister Whitney Nelsen (Historical Hotties! Myth Takes!) joins Macintosh & Maud to talk about a sister combo we haven’t spent much time with! Rarity’s in rare form trying to help her little sister, but Sweetie Belle is holding some long-term grudges. Things get so bad that Princess Luna has to Christmas Carol Sweetie Belle just so she’ll realize the error of her ways. It’s an episode SO GOOD that Whitney,...


MLP S4E18: "Maud Pie"

Find us at: iTunes Google Play Spotify Patreon It’s here, everypony. It’s finally here. The day when Maud Pie finally arrives in Ponyville. We’ve been anticipating this episode since day one of this podcast, not least because Diana partly named this podcast after her. Underneath Maud’s impenetrable exterior, there’s a rock farm pony who’s studying for her rocktorate and loves her bestest sister Pinkie Pie. We’re just so excited to share Maud with the world, and we hope you enjoy her mad...


MLP S4E17: "Somepony to Watch Over Me"

Find us at: iTunes Google Play Spotify Patreon Macintosh & Maud invite their very own Apple Bloom, our daughter and MLP superfan Lucy to talk about this Apple Bloom ponysode! Apple Bloom’s getting to be a bigger pony and has the chance to take care of Sweet Apple Acres all by herself! That is, until Applejack gets the tiniest bit worries and hilarity ensues. We talk to Lucy about how many to-dos she could handle, whether she’d be an Applejack for her little brother, and pick a very Cajun...


MLP S4E16: "It Ain't Easy Being Breezies"

First, this is a Fluttershy episode, so of course there’s some mild shade being thrown to other ponies behind a quiet, kind little pony. Then, we add the Breezies, Icelandic/Nordic pixies that talk in the cutest Swedish chef accent ever. THEN, we add a sobering and complex message about learning how to lead others well with kindness but firmness. And that’s not even counting the mare-iachi ponies right at the beginning. This is one heck of an episode, everypony. Macintosh & Maud have a...


MLP S4E15: "Twilight Time"

Twilight Sparkle is so gracious with her time, she’s offered to teach lessons to the Cutie Mark Crusaders to help them find their cutie marks! To which the Crusaders promptly get played by Diamond Tiara and Silver Spoon into becoming the talk of Ponyville Elementary. I mean, hanging with a princess is pretty great, but these fillies are downright SCARY. Hell hath no fury like a filly scorned. Macintosh & Maud have a Patreon! If you contribute $2.00 or more you can listen to our review of My...


MLP S4E14: "Filli Vanilli"

This week we’re joined by Diana’s aka Maud’s super-cool sister, Sarah! And we have an AWESOME episode for you as Fluttershy accidentally reveals to everypony that she’s an incredible singer. Since it’s Fluttershy though, there’s some stage fright mixed in as well. Still, when a certain somepony loses his deep voice, Fluttershy is willing to jump in to sing bass. With the help of Zecora and a little poison joke... Enjoy our review of “Filli Vanilli!” Macintosh & Maud have a Patreon! If you...


MLP S4E13: "Simple Ways"

Rarity has the honor of planning the Ponyville Days festival. So of course she Rarity’s it up by falling for a super creepy jerk pony that wears argyle and raves about “authenticity” (barf). But that’s nothing compared to the fit Rarity is about to throw when Applejack decides to pretty herself up. Get ready for a hoot-en-nanny as we watch Rarity lose her dadgum mind this week! Macintosh & Maud have a Patreon! If you contribute $2.00 or more you can listen to our review of My Little Pony:...


MLP S4E12: "Pinkie Pride" (w/ Special Guest James! Again!)

If you thought Pinkie Apple Pie or even Too Many Pinkie Pies was jam-packed with Pinkie Pie fun, get ready for double the party ponies. James (Unabashedly Obsessed, Blink and You’ll Miss It, Kids on Bikes) returns only a few weeks after his last appearance to talk about the showdown between Pinkie and the mysterious party pony known only as Cheese Sandwich. We debate potentially better titles for this movie, explore the sudden re-appearance of “felt world,” and break down all of Weird Al’s...


MLP S4E11: "Three's A Crowd"

Discord's back in Ponyville, this time with a bad case of the blue flu. And there's only one way to solve...oh who are we kidding, it's Discord, and he's got a master plan to get rid of all the ponies so he can get Twilight to pay attention to him. His BFF Fluttershy is off going to watch the Breezies, so Discord's gotta bother somepony. Besides, he has an AMAZING song he needs to send into the universe... If you've got questions or comments you can email us at or...


MLP S4E10: "Rainbow Falls"

Dash is trying to get Ponyville qualified for the pegasus relay, but her team is...not the greatest. I mean, Fluttershy's adorable and kind but not the strongest flyer. And Bulk Biceps has...some wing shrinkage issues. So when Spitfire and Fleetfoot offer to let her join the Wonderbolts to fly for Cloudsdale it seems like the greatest thing ever. Except that Twilight Sparkle's got all the princess-level advice and reminds Dash of what her true priorities ought to be. Welcome to Rainbow...


MLP S4E9: "Pinkie Apple Pie" (with Special Guest James!)

Podcaster extraordinaire and Pinkie Pie fan club charter member James (Unabashedly Obsessed! Blink and You'll Miss It!) joins us for the most Pinkie Pie episode that ever did Pinkie Pie. The only thing that could make it better is...*checks notes*...oh, that's right, the entire Apple family going on a road trip to find out if Pinkie is related to them! There's cartoon hijinks, in-jokes about Big Macintosh being very profound, and the hoarder cat lady in the Apple family. And a whole lotta...


MLP S4E8: "Rarity Takes Manehattan"

Rarity gets an episode this week, and that means Macintosh and Maud are gonna get INTO it. Maud thinks Rarity's "generosity" is fairly shallow and self-serving, while Macintosh sees a huge character change this episode. The Rarity scale is definitely in play as we visit Manehattan and get some of our favorite randoponies of the entire series. Oh, and a ridiculous pony musical number... If you've got questions or comments you can email us at or leave a comment on...


MLP S4E7: "Bats!"

Halloween is still a few months away, but Macintosh and Maud are already celebrating with our scariest episode yet! Although, it wouldn't need to be so scary if everyone would just listen to Fluttershy in the first place. She does happen to know about animals, even ones that other ponies might think are vermin. I mean, Twilight Sparkle jumps on the bandwagon pretty quickly against Fluttershy, and that just doesn't seem right. It might just take a...transformation to get everyone to pay...


MLP S4E6: “Power Ponies” (with Special Guest Jon!)

Everypony (or dragon) has a little superhero in them.Have you been eagerly awaiting a My Little Pony crossover with the Marvel/DC universe? No? Well at least you’ll see some recognizable faces as the Mane 6 and Spike get magically transported to one of Spike’s favorite comic books. We’re joined this week by pony guru and fellow podcaster Jon Baley (Popcorn Junkie! Living in the Stacks!) to talk all things Power Ponies and pick our Randopony. And maybe grab one of those cupcakes Pinkie...


MLP S4E5: "Flight to the Finish"

WE'VE GOT HEAAAAAAARTS AS STRONG AS HORSES...This week Macintosh & Maud are cheering on the Cutie Mark Crusaders as they try to win the opening performance at the Equestria Games. Rainbow Dash is super excited for the Crusaders' performance...but not so excited to make Ms. Harshwhinny mad again. In the meantime, the Crusaders have to decide whether or not they're going to buy in to Diamond Tiara and Silver Spoon's mean girl manipulation. We do NOT like them one bit.If you've got questions or...


MLP S4E4: "Daring Don't"

In which Daring Do gains a sidekick - a super AWSEOME sidekick!The Daring Do book series is the hottest thing in print in Equestria. There's action, adventure, danger and thrills as Daring Do fights off bad guys and always gets the artifact she's looking for. It's weird that it's taken so long for A.K. Yearling, Daring Do's creator, to get her new book out. Especially because a certain speedy Pegasus can't wait for the new book to come out. In four months. Time to go find out exactly what's...


MLP S4E3: "Castle Mane-ia" (with Jen and Micah!)

We've got our first guests of the season to discuss some spoopy encounters in Celestia's old castle!This week we've got a jumbo-sized Pinkie Party with our guests Jen and Micah from I Never Saw That! We're treated to a very lightly spooky romp through an old, dusty castle, and learn about how to keep your cool under pressure. In between, though, Jen and Micah talk with us about our alter-pony-egos, Micah reveals his very real-world connection to this week's Randopony, and unveil a new pony...


MLP S4E2: "Princess Twilight Sparkle, Part 2"

THERE'S A TREE OF HARMONY??!?!!Remember when we said Nightmare Moon was back? Yeah, maybe we got a little carried away. Though to be fair, Twilight was taking some pony-huasca, so hallucinations...ahem, visions are par for the course. If you love Pony lore, look no further than this episode, chock full of scenes from 1000 years ago, before Luna had to be banished from Equestria. If not, at least Discord will have some good goofs you can laugh at while you wait. If you've got questions or...


MLP S4E1: "Princess Twilight Sparkle, Part 1"

Did you use to wonder what friendship could be? WE DID, BECAUSE WE MISSED YOU, AND NOW WE'RE BACK!!!We've had our fun and taken a short stable rest, but it's time to get back into MY LITTLE PONY! And what a way to come back, as Twilight's getting ready to make her first big appearance as a full-on alicorn princess! Except something's going down in the Everfree Forest that's threatening to spoil the first Summer Sun Celebration since Princess Luna's return. And if new, awesome magic or pony...
