TeeVee Sub-Show Update

We’ve moved many of the shows that used to live in the TeeVee feed into their own feeds and removed them from the TeeVee feed. If you use the main TeeVee feed to listen to shows about Westworld, Doctor Who, Ted Lasso, The Mandalorian, Star Trek Discovery, Arrow, and WandaVision, those shows aren’t in the TeeVee feed anymore.

They still exist! You just need to subscribe to them directly. If you’re already subscribed to a specific sub-show feed, like Doctor Who Flashcast or Football is Life, those will redirect automatically and you don’t need to do anything. But all of these shows have left this feed.

Still here—one-offs, short runs, and podcasts from listeners and members! This feed isn’t going anywhere—but it’s going to be a bit quieter. Thanks for listening.

For All Mankind S2E10 Review: “The Gray”

For All Mankind

So it all comes down to this. We review the season finale of “For All Mankind,” which puts the fate of the world in the crucible and makes us ponder the power of individual decisions when great systems seem intent on destroying one another. In addition to the dramatic life-and-death decisions, the plants at the bar are dead, Kelly has finished her essay, and we’re given a tantalizing look at what the 1990s might bring. Onward to season three!

Things keep getting more tense! This week Karen owns her ability to make terrible decisions, Gordo vanquishes an old nemesis, Sally Ride is not amused, there’s a meet-cute in a mock-up, and Kelly tries banh mi for the first time. Oh, and there’s a fateful incident on the moon.

For All Mankind S2E7 Review: “Don’t Be Cruel”

Margo needs to communicate information from another tragic event that didn’t happen in the world of “For All Mankind.” A mysterious Soviet engineer comes bearing gifts for Dani. The Vending Machine of Fate beckons to Aleida! And Karen is having a crisis. Meanwhile, on the moon, is someone singing?

The Falcon and the Winter Soldier S1E1 Review: “New World Order”


Like any good (comic book) character, we're back! It was simply too much fun to recap WandaVision, so Lisa Schmeiser, Don Melton, and Kelly Guimont have returned to dig into the first episode of The Falcon and the Winter Snowman Soldier.

For All Mankind S2E6 Review: “Best-Laid Plans”

For All Mankind

At last, the Soviets. We loved this whole episode, from the pointed conversation about Laika to the docking system designed out of coasters. Who makes Houston’s best borscht? Who cares! Let’s have burgers and Jack Daniels! Just don’t tell the KGB.
