Episode 54 - Disney Princesses

It's time for episode 54, in which we discuss our feelings, thoughts, and connections (or lack thereof) with Disney and, more specifically the Disney princesses. How do princess ideals of femininity tie into our own lives? Is Missy truly a Disney princess? Who gets to be a princess? Also, for real, if you're a TV executive and you want to get together on As Scene on TV, let us know.

Episode 45 - Conspiracy Theories

We're back with episode 45, discussing conspiracy theories. Where do they come from? How do they tie into shows like Gravity Falls and Stranger Things. Hey—what are our thoughts on Stranger Things? Don't worry, we're going to talk about it for fifteen minutes straight so buckle in. Also contains a history of the Illuminati, a suggestion for better secret societies to obsess over, and some righteous Dan Brown hating.

Warnings: There are serious Stranger Things spoilers contained within, both in our 'What We've Been Up To' section and the discussion of conspiracy theories. We do warn beforehand, but if you're really worried about it, skip forward by a significant amount when Missy starts talking about it early on, and maybe avoid when we shift gears after discussing Gravity Falls (which is miraculously spoiler free).
