But then R2 rolls out with the Pod-O-Matic, and he’s got a double load of listener-submitted questions for this week.

And that’s just the tip of the iceberg, because there’s over a half-dozen more that have nothing to do with Thundarr at all! It’s not too late to join the cult! Listen now!

Mike hits a number of quick topics this week.

Then there’s a half-dozen new listener-submitted questions on the Pod-O-Matic, and Mike gets to talk about pillows and diet soda; Paranoia and his best game investments; plus water temperature and his brother’s attempt at sound even more hipster than he already does.
