Episode 33: Pure Ejaculation of Awesome

, with special guest:

Xanadu Sq LogoThis week, we get our monster love on with an episode about Guillermo del Toro! To make this episode even better, we are joined in the Pleasure Dome by Matt Kessen, the very tall mad genius behind Reverend Matt’s Monster Science!

If Reverend Matt’s resonant voice makes you want to join in our drinking rites, we suggest a fine, peaty scotch like Laphroaig Cairdeas, which is the bottle we killed while recording this episode. We certainly enjoyed setting our mouths and souls aflame with that stuff.

More show notes behind the cut!
