This week we’re joined by special guest Flourish who helps Merelyn and MK explain ‘the good ol’days’ and why they were actually HORRIFYING but now fill old-school fandom with nostalgia. We’re talking Zines, APAs, Usenet, BBS, LJ, the Pit, the Great Purge, and a million other things you’ll have to look up on Fanlore afterwards. We even get Flourish to make the sound of a 14.4 dial up modem. It’s serious.

Sharpen your axes and do a spot check for syphilis, folks, because Pru is joined by Twentysomething and Leupagus in this season-ender episode to talk about FOX’s balls ass crazy new show, Sleepy Hollow. Did you grow up believing that it was just a quaint and Halloween-appropriate spooky story? INCORRECT. We talk about George Washington’s bible, dig into the biblical definition of seven years, and court controversy left, right and center. Buckle up, because this rapidly turned evil horse is about to leave the station.

We get a lot of questions about making friends on the internet, so instead of answering them, we got four of our best friends in the world together in one city, had a few drinks, and then made fun of each other and recorded it. We’re sure this episode will be incredibly helpful in between all the butt jokes. (Spoiler: No it won’t.)
