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...


MLP Season 3 Wrap-Up

After a HUGE finale, it's time to wrap-up Season 3!We've been to the Crystal Empire, had a visit from Discord, and witnessed the transformation of Princess Twilight Sparkle. Now, it's time to revisit the season and wrap everything up! And what better way to wrap up than with our very special pony friend, James from Unabashedly Obsessed and Blink and You'll Miss It! We talk about our new spinoff of MLP meets The Wire, how Spike is basically Chewbacca, and of course, the best Randopony of the...


MLP S3E13: “Magical Mystery Cure”

Are you ready for PRINCESSES??!?! People, it’s not a stretch to say that this is the most important episode we’ve covered thus far. It's a musical episode, Twilight is inventing new magic, there's a coronation - a whole lot of stuff gets packed in to what could have been the last-ever episode of this series. Who better to discuss this episode with than Pony-superfan and Apple Bloom to Diana's Applejack, Sarah Kinney! We're breaking down every square hoof of this episode and yes, we may get a...

MLP S3E12: “Games Ponies Play”

Rainbow Dash has some SERIOUS problems with losing the Equestria Games as a filly.The Crystal Empire has been shortlisted for the Equestria Games, which means Cadence needs some help. Of course, when the Mane Six are involved, nothing is ever as simple as it seems. Rarity's dealing with Cadence's hair emergency while the rest are treating the "Games Inspector" to the time of her life. At least, that's what they think they're doing, until things get very, very weird.If you've got questions or...


MLP S3E11: “Just for Sidekicks”

All around, a pretty good episode, so long as you forget that Spike's the main character.You would think that a 13-episode season of a children’s animated show wouldn’t have filler episodes. You’d be wrong. Spike is fun and everything, but this whole episode revolves around the flimsiest premise this or any show has ever produced. Then again, we do get some super silly time with all of the Mane Six's pets, and the Cutie Mark Crusaders get some solid time. And hey - at least it's better than...


MLP S3E10: "Keep Calm and Flutter On"

Discord has returned to bring a little bit of chaos to our lives, and WE LOVE IT.We know, we know. Discord's an evil being hell-bent on causing chaos throughout Equestria so he can gain power. At least, that's what we've always been told. When it comes down to it, though, he's really a softie just like every other pony. Or rather, pony and/or hoof-clawed-dragon-goat-demon. And as much as we love Discord, Fluttershy is quickly becoming our favorite pony of the Mane Six, hands down. Not to...


MLP S3E9: "Spike at Your Service"

If you're ever in the position to save a dragon's life...just don't. It's not worth the hassle.We love Spike and his adorable dragon face. He's super helpful and a loyal dragon assistant to everypony. But Spike's also a little boring if we have to hear his stories for too long. And this dragon code he has - it's WAY too intense for a baby dragon to be holding over his head. Maybe we just need to let Spike be Spike. Otherwise, the whole city of Ponyville could be in deep, deep trouble.If...


MLP S3E8: "Apple Family Reunion"

YEE-HAW! We're saddlin' up and ridin' out to the Apple Family Reunion!Y'all, we don't normally spend half an episode talkin' in a Texas accent, but if the Apples are havin' a dang reunion, then we've just gotta have some good-ole-fashioned fun! We're foldin' up fritters, training for the seven-legged race and keepin' an eye out for that there barn that keeps fallin' over. And we're tryin' not to get too choked up at the beautiful message of love and family that Applejack gets to share with...


MLP S3E7: “Wonderbolts Academy”

Rainbow Dash feels the need...the need for speed! On December 15, 2012, the world finally got a glimpse into an elite school established for the top one percent of Equestria’s Pegasus ponies. Its purpose was to teach the lost art of aerial equine acrobatics and to insure that the handful of ponies who graduated were the best in the world. They succeeded. Today, the land of Equestria calls it Wonderbolts Academy. The flyers call it: TOP GUN.OK, not exactly, but Dash and friends remind us of...
