Hey everyone, due to an unforeseen circumstance, we were unable to record yesterday. So please enjoy this bonus episode from the end of Episode 24-Infinity War/Disney Remake episode. It was cut for time, but we are able to release it here. Joining Andrew, Cameron, and Corinne are Hannah Cook from Southampton Productions and Courtenay from Pop Culture Footnotes. If you haven’t listed to Episode 24 yet, it’s probably best to do so before listening to this episode as there are some references we make that may not make sense without the previous episode.
Thank you so much for listening, and we should be back to recording next week! Follow us below:
