- Episode 10: I'm Your Co-host, Mark Williams
In this episode, we continue our series of interviews with ourselves in an effort to promote self-indulgence and narcisssism. Mark talks about Mark in the most Mark way possible and it's just very Mark all around. If you like Mark, this is the episode for you and you should leave a five-star review just for Mark. If you don't like Mark, keep it to yourself. Be sure to check out our Instagram account and join the Discord channel.

- Episode 8: DC and Marvel's Successes and Shortcomings
In this episode, we discuss the strengths and weaknesses of both the MCU and the DCEU, talk about some older (and newer) films outside of those universes, television shows, and some of our favorite movies from both worlds. We discuss the untimely passing of Chadwick Boseman, an American icon, who brought so much beauty to this world and left us far too soon. In the words of his cinematic father, he was a good man, with a good heart. Wakanda Forever.

- Episode 6: The Meaning (or not?) of Art
A female voice is heard! In this episode, we discuss art with Mikala and Noah defends his Michelangelo take after she sent him angry texts. It is by far our most intelligent conversation thus far. We aren't saying that this a direct result of Mikala being on the pod, but we aren't not saying that this is a direct result of Mikala being on the pod. But don't tell her we aren't not saying that.

- Episode 5: Our Favorite Fantasy Book Series
In this episode, we welcome our very first guest to the show. Thus, the legend of Randall Foster Boone is born. We discuss some of our favorite fantasy book series, what makes them brilliant, and why we love them. Somehow, we go the entire episode and barely mention Tolkien at all, which seems like an egregious omission, given that he basically invented the genre. Sorry, John. We love you.
Minor spoilers. Book series mentioned and/or discussed: Harry Potter by J. K. Rowling, The Kingkiller Chronicles by Patrick Rothfuss, and The Stormlight Archive by Brandon Sanderson.

- Episode 4: Avatar: The Last Airbender
In this episode, we discuss the greatest art humans have ever created and the best television show of all time, Avatar: The Last Airbender. Parker says, "It's on Netflix!" and is actually right this time. Mark shares quotes from the best television dad. Noah gets carried away in his analysis and says the moon spirit is blue (spoiler alert: it's not). You'll have to forgive him. He can't be expected to be objective about this.
Minor spoilers. Check out ATLA on Netflix, Amazon, YouTube, or iTunes.

- Episode 3: Dungeons & Dragons & Friendship
In this episode, we discuss our favorite hobby: make-believe for grown-ups! If you've never played Dungeons & Dragons or similar roleplaying games, this is a great place to learn more about how normal it is and how you and your friends can give it a try. If you've played Dungeons & Dragons before, this is a great place to bond with people as weird as you are. Either way, it'll be a blast and a half (maybe even two full blasts).

- Episode 2: Our Favorite Underappreciated Films
In our post-inaugural (and mid-apocalyptic) episode, we talk about some of our favorite underappreciated films. It was all really good until Parker started talking about his third film...and then it was transcendent.
