CLICK TO SUBSCRIBE ON YOUR FAVORITE PODCATCHER. It’s finale time for Season 7 and wow do we have one heck of an exposition bomb dropped on us from the very beginning. I mean, it’d just be lying if we said we didn’t put together the fact that all the legendary pony stories we talked about this season were gonna get referenced later. But they start in on the legends and drop a lore bomb for the first act of this episode, cramming a...

CLICK TO SUBSCRIBE ON YOUR FAVORITE PODCATCHER. Folks - we did it. We finally made it to the final episode of this season. It’s been a whole year since we sat down to start this season adventure, and we’re at the end of a season we’ll always remember for Pony Therapy. I mean, there’s so many lessons and thoughts to take away - for example, never meet your idols. Because Star Swirl the Bearded is a complete jerk who is totally out...

CLICK TO SUBSCRIBE ON YOUR FAVORITE PODCATCHER. RIght before our season finale, we get this adorable reformed ponysode where all of Starlight’s friends get introduced to our favorite Joel Grey magic pony, Sunburst! Well, introduced isn’t the right word, more like coincidentally bump into Sunburst and then become best friends. Starlight might be a bit jealous, but when your best friend comes to visit and then spends a whole day ha...

CLICK TO SUBSCRIBE ON YOUR FAVORITE PODCATCHER. If you’ve watched along with us this whole time, you know that Pinkie Pie can…be a lot. So it’s no surprise this week when Pinkie’s delivery of a pie in celebration of Rainbow Dash’s 73rd Wonderbolt Practice Session might get mixed reviews from Dash. And if it were an isolated case, we might be able to forgive our favorite jock pegasus. But the lengths Rainbow Dash will go to dispos...

CLICK TO SUBSCRIBE ON YOUR FAVORITE PODCATCHER. Good friend and fantastic guest Kristin Devine (Christmastide, OH! Roll to Play! Dice Up Games!) joins us this week on an all-expenses paid vacation in the skies on a luxurious zeppelin cruise! Or at least, that’s what it was billed as when Twilight Sparkle’s mom Twilight Velvet signed the whole family up for a vacation. I mean, who wouldn’t jump at the chance to get away with the w...

CLICK TO SUBSCRIBE ON YOUR FAVORITE PODCATCHER. We’re back with our own little filly, Lucy, to talk Cutie Mark Crusaders this week, and their perfect idea of a Cutie Mark Camp! There’s food, fun activities, and finding your purpose - what could go wrong? Well, how about a little foal who’s the brother of a Wonderbolt and who…(checks notes)…doesn’t want a cutie mark. We’re not kidding when this episode attacks the very notion and ...

CLICK TO SUBSCRIBE ON YOUR FAVORITE PODCATCHER. Angel Andrews returns this week for the rudest, timeliest episode of My Little Pony we’ve watched for this show. Because of course, in this absolute bonkers year of lockdowns and quarantine, our favorite pony had to go and have a pandemic episode. Yup, Fluttershy is trying to take care of her good friend Zecora after she catches the mystifying “swamp fever” and in the process has to...

CLICK TO SUBSCRIBE ON YOUR FAVORITE PODCATCHER. Rarity fan and fantastic guest Kate Harlow (Christmastide, OH) joins us as we discuss the worst mane day ever. And we mean worst. Look, it’s bad enough that Rarity has a mane mishap, we all know how desperately important her coiffure is to her image and brand. But Rarity isn’t in full panic mode over silly string meets super glue getting into her hair. It’s what happens next that is...

CLICK TO SUBSCRIBE ON YOUR FAVORITE PODCATCHER. The awesomely cool friend of the show Morgan Nuncio (The Red Death! Powered by the Players! Streaming!) joins us to talk about the hypest hype team ever, Rainbow Dash and Pinkie Pie. Dash is mostly dragging Pinkie along, though, after she hears A.K. Yearling might be done writing books and can’t fathom her favorite author not writing…I mean worried about her friend, in general. It’s...

CLICK TO SUBSCRIBE ON YOUR FAVORITE PODCATCHER. What happens when you mix Thorax, his grumpy non-transformed brother, and resident Pony Disaster Duo Starlight and Trixie in an episode? Apparently a bunch of hijinks and hilarity. This episode doesn’t really involve any of the Mane Six, and yet it’s low key one of the funniest and most entertaining episodes we’ve seen this season. I mean, Pharynx is just so adorable in how much he ...

CLICK TO SUBSCRIBE ON YOUR FAVORITE PODCATCHER. Tim Devine of the Roll to Play Network and The Red Death joins us to talk about the first real filler episode of MLP we’ve gone through in a long time. Let’s be clear - we’re big fans of the look of these episodes, they’re telling some cool stories. But yowzers does this episode feel slapped together. The chance to meet some Viking ponies or hooved Centurions is pretty great, and we...

CLICK TO SUBSCRIBE ON YOUR FAVORITE PODCATCHER. There’s always a little bit of filler each season, but this episode managed to pack in a great friendship message, Spike shenanigans, and an amazing meta-bit, all at the same time. And also, we get to pit the majestic but a little clueless Thorax with the tactless, blunt honesty of Ember, and OF COURSE it leads to hilarious results. We’re not saying it’s the most groundbreaking epis...

CONTENT WARNING: This episode contains discussions of grief and the loss of parents and loved ones. CLICK TO SUBSCRIBE ON YOUR FAVORITE PODCATCHER. Up until now, there hasn’t been an episode that directly confronted the issues with the fandom. And we would know, we’ve spent 6 and a seasons watching it. They’ve certainly flirted with the idea, but this week, the fandom is getting called out and it is terrific. The protests of Rar...

CONTENT WARNING: This episode contains discussions of grief and the loss of parents and loved ones. CLICK TO SUBSCRIBE ON YOUR FAVORITE PODCATCHER. Pony expert Vin LaBate of The Chimera joins us this week for one of My Little Pony’s most emotional and highest-rated episodes, and in the conversation as one of the best episodes in the series. On its face, the Apple siblings are just on a mini-quest to find out what the deal is wit...

CLICK TO SUBSCRIBE ON YOUR FAVORITE PODCATCHER. Discord superfan Sam Turley of Christmastide, Ohio is here this week to talk about our favorite chaotic draconequus. And unlike most Discord episodes, this time, he’s the one needing more introspection and truly growing as a creature. He also is the main character of the entire episode, if you count the six separate Discords in his house at any given time. And yet despite the hijink...

CLICK TO SUBSCRIBE ON YOUR FAVORITE PODCATCHER. Our Pinkie Pie fan extraordinaire James Anderson joins us once again for hijinks aplenty, this time in Yakyakistan. The yaks are celebrating one of their biggest holidays and Pinkie’s been…”invited” to join in the festivities. There’s vanilla cake, music huts, and stories by the fire, until some ritual stomping triggers an avalanche. That’s when the yaks, stubborn as they are, refus...

CLICK TO SUBSCRIBE ON YOUR FAVORITE PODCATCHER. Friendship problems and the Cutie Map are a mainstay of the past couple seasons, so when Twilight is in a panic-derived shock to start this episode, it seems like overkill. But then you realize that Starlight Glimmer is being called…for a friendship problem…AT CELESTIA AND LUNA’S CASTLE. Sure enough, her worst fears are realized when it turns out the most powerful sisters in Equestr...

This week, Rarity is hosting a fashion show to benefit some up-and-coming designers with huge creativity, and she’s invited fashion’s biggest ponies to judge. There’s Photo Finish, Hoity Toity and…Applejack? Yep, Rarity’s actually got an interesting idea of how to bring Applejack’s honesty and practicality to the design competition. But Applejack instead thinks it’s gonna be a compe...

CLICK TO SUBSCRIBE ON YOUR FAVORITE PODCATCHER. Returning guest Kent Blue of the Roll to Play Network is our guest for the most adorable and ridiculous episode of the season so far. Adorable, because Big Mac has a crush on a pony from Starlight’s old village, and the awkward sweetness is just lovely. Ridiculous, because there’s a rival for Big Mac’s potential pony love, and HE LOOKS AND SOUNDS LIKE JUSTIN BIEBER. Not even joking,...

The amazing and delightful Evan Tess Murray of This Planet Needs a Name and Light Hearts joins us this week for some serious Pony Therapy and ridiculous sight gags as Scootaloo slingshots her way (literally) into Dash’s parents’ house. They’re instant BFF’s, since Bow Hothoof and Windy Whistles are truly bigger fans of Rainbow Dash than even Scootaloo, and that takes effort. In fact...
