Doctor Whooch // Episode 144 // Post Bazos and Jeff

In which we invited the ire of a billionaire. But I mean… what ELSE is new.

On this week’s show, it’s “Kerblam!” – the 7th episode in the stellar 11th series of Doctor Who! In what might be our best (or worst?) episode yet, we lobby to get paid a lot of money to help the masses. And only a heartless person would deny our request.

Outro music is a “Bitch Better Have My Money” by Rihanna

Doctor Whooch // Episode 143 // Now Is Not The Time For Subtlety

What part of “be a good person” was hard to understand?

On this week’s episode, Danica and Brandon are talking about the series 11 episode of Doctor Who entitled “Demons of the Punjab” as only two white people can: with unearned confidence. Which makes them uncomfortable and awkward. So hey, all in all, a pretty regular episode of the show. Enjoy!

Outro music is a “First Love” by Emmy the Great

I HAVE SOME NOTES – SIDE NOTES // CAN A MOVIE RUIN YOUR CHILDHOOD?

Danica is back on I Have Some Notes to offer a few more thoughts on ruining your childhood through media… if that’s even possible.

Take a listen here!


Some other times misguided folks invited us onto their podcasts…

Stan Lee

What can really be said? Or I guess, what can really be said succinctly.

To the memory of The Man we knew, a construct of his own devising. A showman. A storyteller. Who through collaboration, created universes.

There’s so much to say, both good and bad. But today, this will do.

Doctor Whooch // Episode 142 // Diagnosis: Adric’s Disease

Apologize? Apologize for what!

On this week’s show, Danica and Brandon are talking about “The Tsuranga Conundrum”, which puts The Doctor and Team TARDIS in a bit of a space pickle. Also, there’s a wild space pregnancy, and a WHOLE LOT OF BROKEN FAMILY FEELS. And a cute as hell monster creature. So. There’s that.

Outro music is a “Sweet Escape” by Gwen Stefani

Doctor Whooch // Episode 141 // There Are No Spiders In This One

WHY WOULD YOU SUGGEST IT?

On this week’s show, Brandon goes it alone… sort of… as Danica’s phobia of spiders comes into play. Thankfully, Kat from Verity is on hand, as a great guest host to talk about the series 11 episode… (checks papers) “Arachnids in the U.K.” Which is almost definitely about space unicorns and not spiders. Almost definitely.

Outro music is a metal cover of Sex and the City we found on the internet.

Drink This Podcast Ep. 93 // The Goof in Me: The Rest of a Conversation About Wrestling

Have you been waiting for more wrestling talk? Whelp, you’re very ridiculous prayers have been answered!

You ask for weird things.

Anyway, you can listen to Brandon slur his way through more wrestling stuff, and attempt to introduce one of the hosts to the magical realm of Lucha Underground, where one of the wrestlers definitely gets eaten by a cage monster in the first season. Oh, and one of the wrestlers is a dragon, and another is a time traveller. And that’s probably some of the least bonkers stuff.

Doctor Whooch // Episode 140 // People Are Terrible

In which SURPRISE! Racism isn’t cured.

On this week’s episode, Danica and Brandon are two white people talking about the Series 11 episode “Rosa”, so you know… take our drunk opinions for what they are. Also hey, feel free to hit the internet for more pertinent voices. We have a link to some in the show notes.

K thanks byyeeeeeeeee.

Doctor Whooch // Episode 139 // Delayed Gratification with Pickles and Bumble

In which NO ONE CRIES HOW DARE YOU SUGGEST IT.

On this week’s episode, The Doctor and her best friends are out in spppaaaaaaaaaace! Which is slightly problematic when you’re, you know, in the vacuum of it, and not in a ship. But no worries! There are ships, and Brandon and Danica DEFINITELY remember the names of who the pilots were and they don’t at all ruin the emotional resonance of many scenes. Anyway, hey! It’s “The Ghost Monument” and it is brilliant, and thank you all for listening.

Outro music is “Best Friend” by Foster the People
