We cover a song from an Animated show from our tween years, as well as a Finnish metal band that performs in dinosaur costumes and aims their music at children.

Hello friends! I cut a big chunk of the end of our special episode with Kris. It didn't have much to do with the songs, but I found the conversation to be interesting and I hope you do too. 

Unfortunately, we've had some IRL (In Real Life) things get in the way of our regularly scheduled program, so I'm stalling a bit with this mini episode. But I wanted to release something for y'all!
