Our lost episode has been found!

We had left Matilda in shambles on the cutting room floor after we weren't able to get separate track audio for everyone. Through the magic of perseverance we finally finished editing this episode. It's got a very 'live' feel to it, and it went off the rails in ways that are hard to explain.

We hope you enjoy this slightly-longer-than-usual quasi-l...

In this episode, we collectively agree to ignore the elephant in the room, which is oddly guillotine shaped. No, this isn't Les Mis, it's Beauty & the Beast. 

Originally released in 1991, Disney's take on the well known fairytale was an instant classic, and Belle arguably cemented herself as the greatest of all Disney princesses. (Though we'll admit Rapunzel is pretty great too). It's a musical...

In this episode, we are all aboard the Brendan Fraser hype train and resurrecting an old favorite with The Mummy! (Do you see what we did there?) 

The Fraser fronted remake debuted in 1999 as a goofy, Iniana Jones inspired action romp about a race across Egypt to uncover a long forgotten treasure. It spawned a multi-film franchise that includes eight titles (but only if you count the four direct-to-video Scorpion King spin...

The Walt Disney Company is up to their old tricks bringing us another remake that nobody asked for!
