Episode 52 - Harry Potter Part Two Plus Fantastic Beasts

Our discussion of Harry Potter continues in episode 52, covering books five through seven as well as the recently released "Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them." Are the beasts truly fantastic? Did we forgive Snape and Malfoy? How do we feel about the future of the franchise? Reminder: we'll be donating 100 percent of the money we make from Patreon and merch sales in December to a charity or multiple charities to be decided soon. We chose December to be sure everybody would have the chance to participate since November is always half over. Don't worry, we'll be reminding you frequently!

Warning: There are some minor cusses, but nothing that would get us banned on network TV.

Episode 43 - Gatekeeping

We're back with episode 43, discussing gatekeeping. What is it? Why does it happen? Are we immune to it? How does this tie into current geeky events? Also, a long and ridiculous intro full of weird jokes.

Warning: We're not joking about the inappropriateness of our intro. We're sorry, we don't know what got into us--but it's funny, so we kept it. Also, we don't know why Merri's audio sounds autotuned other than that it was our first time editing in GarageBand and it wanted Merri to have a little T-Pain vibe going. It will probably not happen again.
