Episode 57 - Glaciers of Men IV: It Was Animal Crossing All Along

We're in a bit of scheduling limbo with Star Wars coming out today, so we're rolling with another of our (in)famous Geek Potpourri episodes! Hear us chat about all the books, movies, television and games we've been geeking out about the last few weeks! And if that's not enough, we go on epic tangents about reusable shopping bags and the hot singles of Stardew Valley!

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 54 - Wizard and Glass

We're back with another episode in our Harry Potter vs Dark Tower Reading Challenge! This time it's a special edition wherein we discuss Wizard and Glass, the big tragic romance flashback of the Dark Tower series. This was one of Brian's favorite books growing up (and he hyped it pretty significantly to Kristin) - does it stand the test of time or collapse under the weight of its daunting length and outdated tropes? Listen and find out!

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 51 - The Legend of Korra: Turf Wars Part 1

We could have taken a jaunty stroll through the Spirit World in the time we've been waiting for this Korra comic - BUT NOW THE WAIT IS OVER! Was it worth the long wait? Did the continuation of one of our favorite shows live up to the hype? DID VARRICK AND ZHU LI DO THE THING ONCE MORE? Give a listen and find out, Korraholics!

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 48 - Game of Thrones

Welcome lords and ladies to the grand amphitheater of House Podawan! It's pretty shocking we haven't done a Game of Thrones / A Song of Ice and Fire episode yet, right? The show is back for the penultimate season and the books are limbo, so why not do it now? Besides all things GoT and ASoIaF, we also geek out about the new Doctor and drop some withering shade on the horrible new Valerian movie.
