    Ep 116: All the cartoons I've loved before

    We know your first crush was a cartoon. Don't lie. We've all been there. The shows one watches growing up can have a big effect on them and so can those crushes.

    Ep 108: Overwatch and comics as a lore booster

    This week hosts Justin and Jacob reunite with RFK alum Sid Drmay to talk about their favourite online shooter, Overwatch. The story of the game itself doesn't make much sense, but loads of animated shorts and online comics fill out its confusing (but endearing world). They discuss comics as a way to easily add more lore to a game and TV show, and when to know when you're just being sold to.
