Hee hee. Wet.
In Episode 63, hosts Alyce and Laura catch* up on month’s worth of news and discuss the newest episodes of The Bad Batch?
We’re just saying.
They could have called the Andor show something cool like “Fulcrum” or “Underworld: The Rebellion.”
But they went with “Andor” and now we can’t stop hearing “and/or” so here’s hoping for a late-in-the-game title change so it doesn’t sound like they named the show after a conjunction =/

If we learned anything from 2020, it’s that 1) meat thermometers break easily and 2) you shouldn’t stick it in too deep.

In Episode 45, hosts Alyce and Laura are recording* a little early (like, 2 days early) because Alyce is SO DEMANDING and doesn’t want to spend her BIRTHDAY editing this dumb show lol. Honestly, can you blame her? Oh yeah, and we’re still not done with Thrawn.
