Luke vs Vader
Harry vs Voldemort
Batman vs Joker
The Young Podawans vs Their “To Be Read” Piles.
All legendary challenges, but we’re only talking about one of them this week. It’s an update on the unending battle against our teetering book towers and the challenge Kristin laid down at the beginning of the year! It’s all books all the time in this brand new episode!
Segment 1: What Are We Geeking Out About? (1:52)
Every week in the opening segment we discuss what we’re currently geeking out about! This week Kristin is geeking out about Fire Emblem Fates: Birthright (with bonus terror at the peril of Perma-Death in these kind of games) and Brian is geeking out about GLOW (with bonus love for all things ‘80s fashion and music).
