Hailey hates how much time and energy get wasted on conspiracy theories. This week, Sean presents Disney, toy, and pop culture-related conspiracy theories in the hopes of sorta kinda ruining Hailey's childhood just a smidge. Did Tangled predict the pandemic? Does Finding Nemo showcase the stages of grief? Is Up about a journey to the afterlife? Is Tarzan really Elsa and Anna's brother?
Our duo also discuss the questions: What would you do in a Holodeck? Do lizard people really eat meat? And if so, does a tea brine make people meat tastier?
Also, Brandon, our Official He-Man Historian and friend of the podcast, answers some burning He-Man questions and gives us some backstory on the Eternia Universe.
Picking up on some topics from the last episode, Hailey and Sean pivot from animated children's shows to more adult animated shows. They discuss "Masters of the Universe: Revelation" in both spoiler-free and spoily form. What's the deal with Skeletor? What are the psychological implications of He-Man's transition?
The duo also reviews "Beastars", an anime high school drama club murder mystery with talking animal people, and walks you through the first episode.
Hailey confronts Sean about his "podcast voice", discusses hot animal cartoon characters, and explains why Alanis Morissette haunts her every day!
Hailey hates when children's entertainment teaches them all the wrong things. This week, Hailey and Sean dig a little deeper into the messaging of a couple of cartoon examples that seem to be love letters to toxic beauty ideals and capitalism. They watch one episode of Winx Club and clips from the Bratz Babyz Movie as Hailey fumes over the tragic implications of teaching babies to be "hotter than hot".
We've got pant-sniffing, nipple-ring trolls, baby burlesque, Spice Girl fairies, fashion from 1996, Herculean bunny rabbits, the Douchestreet Boys, a "Clueless"-style closet filled with baby t-shirts and underoos, and My Little Pony badonkadonks. Join us, won't you?
This week is a not-so-mini episode introducing two new segments to the show! Hailey and Sean share spoiler-free reviews of television shows they are watching lately, what arts and crafts are keeping Hailey occupied, why they had to watch F9, and recommendations for tasty options at Red Robin. Hailey shares some progress she has made with anxiety, depression, and cPTSD lately, what doctors don't tell you when you have cancer, and why the podcast is a part of her personal growth. Humor is the main ingredient in this week's casserole of crazy!
