Episode 84 - Crazy Ex-Girlfriend

Put on your sexy getting ready song, because it's time for our 84th episode, all about Crazy Ex-Girlfriend! We're talking about mental health (naturally), cringe comedy, and all our favorite ditties.

To get right to the Crazy Ex-Girlfriend talk, skip to 00:16:00.

Mistakes: Little Corvus just goes by Little Corvus! Totally Missy's mistake. Also, sorry about the audio fluctuations this episode; for some reason our mixer ports love to be weird. We'll keep an eye on that for our next episode and see if we can isolate the cause.

Warnings: Potentially triggering discussions of mental health, suicidal ideation, and suicide, plus cussing.

Episode 79 - My Chemical Romance, Umbrella Academy, and Doom Patrol

This is how we like to do it in the murder scene—if by 'the murder scene' you mean episode 79 and by 'like to do it' you mean 'talk about our great love for My Chemical Romance and Gerard Way's comics!' Equal parts fan raving, analysis, and discussion of why weirdness is a good thing, this episode is pretty much a love letter to one of our favorite bands. Enjoy!

To get right to the My Chemical Romance talk, skip to 00:17:00.

Warnings: This episode is uncensored, and contains some potentially triggering discussions of mental illness and addiction.

Episode 78 - Polarity by Max Bemis

Welcome to episode 78, in which we discuss Polarity by Max Bemis, the lyricist and vocalist for Say Anything, one of the major bands of our adolescence. We're talking about catharsis, about audience, and about hypocrisy, because Polarity is a lot to digest while simultaneously being very little.

To get right to the Polarity talk, skip to 00:27:00.

Warnings: This episode is uncensored, but we only decided that midway through. There are also some frank discussions of mental health concerns, if that's a distressing area for you.
