Episode 100 - Brooklyn Nine-Nine s. 4 - 5

Welcome to our all-new Venom podcast! We also talk about Brooklyn Nine-Nine a bit. Okay, more than a bit. We spend a lot of time discussing how seasons four and five break free of some of the shows pitfalls, but also where they keep stumbling. Also, a long discussion of bisexual representation and how important it is to let people tell their own stories.

To get right to the Brooklyn Nine-Nine conversation, skip to 00:25:00.

Warning: Swearing, and also just... an unbelievable number of uses of the word 'horny.' We're sorry.
