Pokémon: I Choose You!

Join Lily, Scott, and special guest Hamish, as they embark on an exciting quest in a world of collectible little creatures and watch the very first episode of the hit anime series "Pokémon"! Listen as they breakdown this episode, detailing the story of 10-year-old Ash Ketchum and his quest to become the world's greatest Pokémon master. They'll discuss the history of Pokémon as a franchise, from its concept as a game inspired by insect collecting, and its many Nintendo iterations, to its incredibly long running TV series and current worldwide mobile gaming phenomenon "Pokémon Go"! They'll also talk about the dangerousness of allowing kids to have Pokémon licenses years before drivers' licenses, Ash's somewhat sociopathic tendencies, some differences in the Japanese version, banned episodes and scenes, and many observances of life in a world full off fantastical pocket monsters and the people that must wander alone, trying to train them. So sit back with some snacks and hot chocolate and thank you for saying "Hitting Play, I choose you!"

The Simpsons (Shorts): Good Night

Join Lily and Scott as they take a look back to a pivotal point in the history of television. A time when a successful producer returned to television and helped a talented British actress with her sketch comedy show by approaching a comic strip artist with the idea of creating some animated shorts. Those cartoons increased in popularity to the point hat they were spun-off into their own show, where they've been a household name for almost three decades: The Simpsons! Listen as they breakdown the very first Simpsons short ever to air on The Tracey Ullman Show entitled "Good Night"! They'll discuss the early history of The Simpsons, from Matt Groening's attempt to retain publishing rights to his other characters, and Dan Castellaneta's Walter Matthau-like voice for Homer, to the strange look of the characters and the reason the shorts were never given an official release. So take a trip back to April 19, 1987 and see where it all started! And don't let the bed bugs bite!
