  • Welcome to Episode 61: Welcome to the Jungle!
  • We're back at it after a week off for... DRAGONCON!
  • DragonCon was a smaller and different experience than years past because of COVID, but it was still great to see everyone! Oh, and I apparently was the ONLY one in the podcasting circles to actually GET COVID while there, even though fully vaxxed and masked! Ugh! But the show must go on!

  • In our Roll for Credits segment, we review the 2015 Wachowski sci-fi romp, Jupiter Ascending starring Channing Tatum and Mila Kunis! Goes to show you that two A-list actors cannot save a film. But hey! Sean Bean didn't die in the movie! Bonus!
