514 The X-Files

We put the I, and Eff Bee Ihhh—ncoherant wailing, because this is our episode about one of the seminal shows of recent memory and modern fandom: The X-Files. Hoyden and Xenakis join Pru to talk about Mulder, Scully, how they found the series, what might have made it such a phenomenon, and how we feel about the upcoming six-episode miniseries. Chaneen also drops by for a non-spoilery quick chat about the first of the new episodes. We talk conspiracy, romance, shipping, the relative uselessness of Fox Mulder through the lens of an adult female viewpoint, and whether Skinner is getting hotter with time. (Yes.) Strap in, and for God’s sake — don’t drop your service weapon.

Wow, guys, it’s another first time, because this week Pru and MK are joined by not only The Hoyden, but also by MK’s friend Paul, the first dude we’ve ever had on the podcast. We open with a quick discussion of Sailor Moon Crystal, Mythbusters, Fresh Off the Boat, and the Legend of Zelda Netflix show (confirmed after recording). For our longer discussion this week, we dip into one of the worst fandoms that all of us share: Naruto. Tune in to learn about why Naruto is the worst, how Kishimoto gave us all blue balls, and then listen to us struggle to figure out why Kakashi is so great. (Because he is. He is SO great.) It’s a dark day for fandom, so you might as well join us as we fail at everything.

Note: there is some construction noise in the background of this episode because fucking Toronto, of course there is. Sorry about that.

It’s time to get high on nasal decongestants and serums that fuck with your DNA, because Hoyden and Pru have congregated this very special week to talk about the latest, the probably not greatest, X-Men: Days of Futures Past. We discuss how the hell this movie managed to keep so many different threads clear, and whether or not the character arcs for our trio of leads worked, and if this movie course corrected on some of the more annoying paternalism from the first. Also, Wolverine’s butt. So if you’re ready for a spoiler heavy podcast with national treasure Hoyden tripping balls on cold medicine and holding up admirably the entire time, this is your time.

Get ready to give up one of your eyeballs for someone you love, because this week we’re joined by The Hoyden for a special episode all about mangaka circle CLAMP. We’ll cover the highs and lows, from that dark, fucked up shit show that was x1999/Tokyo Babylon to the sugary sweetness of Cardcaptor Sakura. And yeah, we know: the ending of Tsubasa Reservoir Chronicles made no sense, but we’ll try to apply some logic to it anyway. So settle in with some snacks and the biggest bottle of sake you can get your hands on because it’s all fun and games until somebody murders your twin sister to show you how much they don’t care about you.

Maybe this year senpai will notice us! Or senpai will find this podcast episode where we talk about glowing fog penises and why you would ever want to microwave your manga collection and then ever speak to us again. This week we’re joined by one of our favourite guests, The Hoyden, as we go deep (so, so deep) into manga, doujinshi, scanlating, and yes, a little bit of anime. There’s no going back, but you should listen anyway.

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.)
