A show about the importance of stories in all mediums, how they're constructed, how they're told, and how they enhance our lives. We love and care about books, movies, comics, games, television, and any other medium through which stories can be told. We're willing to dissect the stories we love and laud the stories we don't. Because stories matter.

Michael has been binge-watching a lot of Star Trek, so Mandy and Michael chat about it! Almost everything before the Kelvin-verse movie trilogy is covered (turns out there was so much to talk about that the TNG movies didn’t get much of an explicit mention). The topics in order are: The Original Series The Animated Series The Original Series Movies…
 
This episode is part of our Trivially Crucial Backlog - Episodes recorded previously and until now left unposted. In this episode the Superman run continues with a single episode for the 3rd and 4th Christopher Reeve Superman films. It’s a severe understatement to say these movies were found to be absolutely ridiculous.…
 
Years ago Mandy got Michael to start watching Supernatural, a show with plenty of horror-esque content in its first couple of seasons (Michael doesn't do horror). 15 seasons later it's time to bid adieu to the Winchesters and their 1967 Chevy Impala. In this episode you’ll hear about the finale, sure, but before that you’ll hear much more: Recommen…

This 42nd episode discusses the only thing that could possibly be appropriate: Douglas Adams's The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy in its many forms.

Check out D…

Mand and Michael discuss three classic short stories from Isaac Asimov, celebrating the quotation from which the show gets its name. “Individual science fiction stories may seem as trivial as ever to the blinder critics and philosophers of today — but the core of science fiction, its essence, the concept around which it revolves, has become crucial…

Mandy and Michael discuss the two Tim Burton directed Batman films, 1989's Batman and 1992's Batman Returns.

Netflix's third Marvel show, Luke Cage, is the topic du jour. It's a powerful show relevant to modern race discussions with an unapologetic focus on Harlem as representation of Black America. Come for the superficial superhero discussion, stay for the intense social themes, and enjoy Michael and Mandy disagreeing at length on the nature of evil. Th…
 
Magic and Sorcery makes its biggest impact in the MCU yet with Doctor Strange, and Michael and Mandy talk all about it. The film did a lot right while missing some major opportunities at the same time. It has plenty of material to talk about. The duo also does an Infinity Stone count to see where we stand as the MCU marches ever onward towards a ce…
 
Mandy and Michael have a fun discussion in which they draft their favorite villains from all sorts of movies, games, television shows, book series, and comics. It's fun and kind of random!

Mandy and Michael discuss Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, the new play that picks up during the Epilogue of the original book series.

Mandy and Michael talk about all 11 seasons of Supernatural, the long and meandering tale of Sam and Dean Winchester, two often brave and sometimes idiotic brothers who both save and wreak havoc on the world around them.

This week is a 2 hour discussion about Superman. This may seem a much more focused topic than our other episodes so far, but Superman as a character is a very broad subject.
