We are joined by the delightful Patrick from TierZoo on YouTube to talk about the Miocene, biology, how TierZoo videos are made, the Smash Bros meta, give our Patreons RPG classes/races, and learn how Dan is an ungrateful dog-loving swine when it comes to Netflix recommendations...

Wikicast 040 - UCLA Medical Center, Santa Monica

August 11, 2018

Dan talks about a transformative experience in Prague, Simon chats shit about the Incredibles 2, and we receive an incredibly exciting fan fiction!

A really packed episode this week, we're also talking about results day (and Dan's shady dealings), about Netflix recommendations (THE GOOD PLACE), Dan's date-ending medical emergency, the NHS, manlets, and so much more. You'll just have to listen to find out I guess...

Best of the Wikicast 2017-2018

August 4, 2018

 

The show just turned a year old, so we thought we'd compile some of our best moments into a special episode while Dan is on tour in Prague! You can expect some pure Simon and Dan goodness, some star turns by our guests, the best of correspondence, and some famous/infamous fan fics.

This is a long-form 'best of' in that I've clipped whole segments from past shows. If you dear reader would like to compile a short-form version where it's just the best sentences and jokes and rants then we would love to see that more than words can say. Please, please make that.

As I say in the episode, you guys have given us more than we have given you and so we remain in your debt. Thank you for being such an amazing community of listeners. You're all the best and we love you very much. Mwah.
