Once again, we find ourselves too tired and incoherent to stick to a single topic. We’re not sorry. By now you all should know what you’re getting in to.
This week, we’re talking about nerd culture as it relates to queerness, and how 2017 gives us a new perspective on the fiction of previous decades. Also, kill nazis, kill nazis.
Why is it so hard to aim with an analog stick? Who should play Flex Mentallo if they ever make a Doom Patrol movie? We answer these questions and more in this even-less-coherent-than-usual episode.
Will Keith ever return Ivy’s VHS copy of the Super Mario Bros. Movie? Find out in this slightly coherent episode!
