Let's take a dip in the primordial cyber ooze! We are a little freaked out by our computers this week as Artificial Intelligence threatens our very existence. Welcome to Kill Switch! Carolyn and Vanessa are joined by two phile-friends to discuss whether robots are running the world. Carolyn gets a little excited about her favorite "genetic opera" while Vanessa can't get enough of sarcastic Scully. Download now for tons of fun facts and a confusing journey through technology, society, and whatever name the CW goes by now.
Thank you to our listener Paul for our outro!
Editors note: We have some weird background noise in this episode, we've got it figured out, but couldn't fix it on this recording. Thanks for standing by us!
Welcome to Chinga, the first X-Files episode Carolyn ever saw! Don't worry, you'll hear a lot about her X-Files origin story. We also reflect (no pun intended) on our favourite bald guys, talk a lot about Stephen King, and Carolyn takes her own stab at being a prolific horror writer to tell Vanessa a story that totally freaks her out. Find out what we're shipping this time and shudder along with us as we talk about possibly one of the creepiest X-Files episodes ever!
This week we pay tribute to teen angst and Mulder's boyish agility! The trees are alive, with the sound of angry dads--it seems. Carolyn and Vanessa view the X-Files through adolescent glasses! Does it smell like teen spirit in here? Download now and don't get trapped in the orchard after curfew!
Good news! Thanks to our awesome patrons on patreon.com, we are getting a new recorder! This will help us avoid audio issues in the future. Season 5 has been a wild audio ride!
Thanks everyone for your regular support! Shout out to: Alex, Anna-Karin, Daniel, Erika, Jemimah, Jennifer, John, Maria, Michelle, Monica, Naomi, Peter, Sara, Vicki, and Vin!
On that note, we apologize for audio weirdness this week.
How much blue paint can you swallow before you die? We talk to our guest, Lindsay, to find out! We also talk the season 11 announcement (cautiously optimistic), overused plot devices, and wonder why Mulder can't keep his fish alive. In the end, we come to the conclusion that "Mulder doesn't need a badge to do what he wants to do," and end up having our very own NRA conference. Enjoy the crazy!
This episode will melt your face off! This week Vanessa and Carolyn welcome a new and exciting guest! Andrea Warner from the podcast Pop This! comes by to share her hot takes on feminism, pop culture, and being driven by the Cigarette Smoking Man. We get down to the 'bones' of the episode and have a great time laughing at Mulder's fight skills and Scully's desert wanderings in a nightgown. Download today for maximum episode freshness!
Thank you to our listener Paul for the amazing outro music!
