This is a very special episode - our very first episode recording in person, the three of us all together in the same place! We took the opportunity to talk about a mutual breakdown of our feelings on gender identity during this episode, and it's a very honest deep dive into the ways we connect and differ at this point along our journey. Please note that we talk about bodies, presentation, and dysmorphia at points throughout the episode, and that our experiences are very much our own and may not remotely apply to others who share the Nonbinary label.

In this episode Avalon recaps the feeling of the Lord of the Rings cinematic trilogy for them growing up. Avalon truly has to explain Lord of the Rings to Diana in this episode, but please don't worry, it does quickly devolve into the longest run of FMK this podcast has ever seen. At times, it may be sacrilege so approach this episode with caution. Please do check out our Patreon for some exclusive behind the scenes from editing this episode, and more on the way!

Oops, Diana fell in love with dating sims, and now it's everyone's problem. Diana spoils most of Dream Daddy and Dungeon Boyfriend in this episode, so beware!

In this mutual episode, we take a big hop back to the last time we were truly happy, the Scholastic Book Fair. Which, thankfully, gave us a chance to talk about Animorphs again.

In this episode Diana tells Avalon the entire plot of Black Sails, a Starz original series prequel to the story Treasure Island. Featuring a long discussion about strip clubs v. burlesque, and a shockingly small amount about Muppet Treasure Island!

In this episode, Avalon tells Diana about the tiny (but epic) fantasy series she grew up with (and is now revisiting) Redwall. Diana is pretty peeved that no one told her about it before now, frankly.

This week we were joined by the amazing Brenda (aka @batmanandsobbin) to talk about Detective Conan. This was a totally new topic for us and we are super stoked to check out the show. Don't worry, we also went off-topic to chat about knitting, fanfiction, and what our Pokemon names would sound like!
Please check out Brenda's other podcasts here:
For those who decide to watch Detective Conan after this episode, Brenda has a little CW: Warning for the first episode, there is a pretty graphic accident on a rollercoaster. It is the most graphic scene in the show and Crunchyroll has the censored cut of it (I believe). If the anime is too much, check out the movies Phantom of Baker Street (very scifi), or Countdown to Heaven (it's kinda like murder mystery die-hard). They have a recap of the story at the beginning of every movie
