One moment we’re saving the kingdom, the next moment we’re the sports ball coach. It’s time for some more bonus content, as we dive deep into the show-in-transition that is My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic Season 3.
Guest hosts include Thomas Pandich, Neil Nadelman, and Kara Dennison. CLICK HERE or on the image above to download our review of the show:
Review in a Nutshell: Discussion includes an uber-nerdy argument about free will vs predetermination, the nature of heroes, speculation about where the show is going, reflections on where the show has been, opinions about the visibility of the fanbase, and numerous other topics.

We’re being sent back to Magic Kindergarten to take a look at My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic Season 2.
Guest hosts include Clarissa and Gerald from AnimeWorldOrder and celebrity translator Neil Nadelman. CLICK HERE or on the image above to download our review of the show.
Review in a Nutshell: We didn’t go as deep or as esoteric this time around, but we did manage to mention the concept of the Doppelganger, Derpy-gate, the highs and lows of the fandom, and why we think the show has managed to remain fresh despite the loss of certain key talents.

Time for some more kiddy cartoons!
CLICK HERE or on the image above to download a bonus episode in which Sean “Hollywood” Hunting and I gush all over Avengers: Earth’s Mightiest Heroes.
Review in a Nutshell: Avengers is one of only a handful of Marvel animated properties that does justice to the source material. It’s a great animated series that can be enjoyed by children of all ages, with sharp writing and strong characterization.
The theme song is @#$%ing terrible, though.

To heck with movies, it’s time to talk about some kiddy cartoons.
CLICK HERE or on the image above to download a bonus episode in which guest hosts Clarissa and Gerald from AnimeWorldOrder help Paul review My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic.
Review in a Nutshell: Our topics of the discussion run the gamut of gender roles, feminism, intertextuality, mythology, and the nature of strong characters and clever writing.
We explore thoroughly what it means to be adults enjoying a cartoon meant for children. This podcast is a counterpoint to the one published by Jeremy and company over at Destroy All Podcasts DX.
