Newcomers: Star Wars Fanfiction (w/ Madeline Walter) is an interesting one as they delve into the world of Star Wars fan fiction, but not just fan fic, slash fic. They get down and dirty and it’s no hold barred as they read some really detailed, smut filled fan fic, and they share their own which they made up just for this episode. They don’t hold back as there are Luke/Wookiee/Yaddle/3PO orgies and more. Plus there’s a nice clean one about Beru. Afterwards they talk a little about The Mandalorian. Don’t listen to to this one if your kids are around, but it’s definitely worth a laugh. Also, if hearing a sexual encounter between Luke, Yaddle, C-3PO and some Wookiees makes you uncomfortable, you’ll want to skip this one.

The Story Geeks: Is Harley Quinn good or bad? And why did Birds of Prey fail? Daryl, Nick and Priscilla share their thoughts on the film, they compare it to Suicide Squad, they talk about the comic characters, they talk about whey they think the movie fell short, whether there were any heroes in the movie, and what makes them heroes? It’s a good discussion, however, when I first listened to it the audio was messed up and it repeated itself at points. The runtime was initially 2 hours 25 minutes, so it looks like they’ve fixed this now.
