WWBUT 8 - Rice Udders

What have we been up to? Thinking about how rice milk is made, apparently. We're sorry about our gross misunderstanding of what horchata is. Also: The Shining, Bonded, and SWMRS!

Warnings: A mild swear squeaked through, and we spend a ridiculous time talking about breasts and udders.

WWBUT 7 - Jon Favreaus Elf

What have we been up to since our last episode? Reliving our days as emo teens, naturally.

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.

Episode 44 - Archie Comics

We're back with episode 44, chatting about Archie, Betty, Veronica, and the various other denizens of Riverdale and Archie Comics. It's Merri's first introduction to the franchise that isn't a classic TV show or movie! Missy gets to endlessly quote Josie and the Pussycats! We go off on Betty and Veronica #1! What more could you want?

Warnings: There is a mild curse (it starts with 'b' and rhymes with 'witch') as well as some mention of pornography in the discussion about Betty and Veronica. It's not explicit, we promise, but it does get mentioned several times in the context of the art.
