Mazes & Monsters (1982) w. Brayden Scobie

Ep. 101

We’re back from our break and we’ve brought a real doozy of an artifact: Mazes & Monsters (1982) starring Tom Hanks.

Listen as Brayden Scobie and I dissect this made-for-TV movie that’s CERTAINLY NOT about Dungeons and Dragons. We attempt to understand what causes Tom Hanks’ prolonged mental breakdown, to assess how closely this fictionalized story follows the real event, and what is up with Jay Jay’s hats!

Be sure to go see Brayden in meatspace at Hexagon Board Game Cafe for drop-in D&D, watch his streaming show Tomes & Tombs, and go listen to our podcousins Fanimorphs – The Dork Bajir Chronicles: An Animorphs Podcast

Merlin (1998) w. Sophie Gareau-Brennan

Ep. 98

Sophie Gareau-Brennan of the We Watch Food podcast is here to talk about a blast from her past: the 1998 TV miniseries Merlin.

We discuss how time changes our perspectives on certain media, how well this Sam Neil as Merlin adaptation does (even with it being made-for-90s-TV), and what our personal mentor wizards were growing up.
