Originally Recorded 2022/04/25
Our inaugural coverage of (something other than an episode of The Walking Dead Universe) Better Call Saul: In its 6th and final season. You have Sherrandy (AKA @BlazyGardener) to thank as she was the one who was really passionate about us doing this and, as we've alluded to at many points during our podcast's history, we've always wanted to branch out and talk about other television shows under this podcast's banner (and Breaking Bad/Better Call Saul are usually first on the list of series that are rattled off).
As both the 1st and 2nd episodes of this season of Better Call Saul were released, simultaneously, so too goes our episode coverage. As mentioned in the pre-amble, we first debuted these episodes on our YouTube Channel, to fairly decent reception, so we continued along this path. Our first several episodes and reaction videos were marked unlisted, to create more of a groundswell and to receive more feedback from our Ko-fi members, then we debuted them all in a row a few weeks later. If you want the opportunity to stay ahead of the curve on any new material we plan on releasing, the only place we develop these ideas is on our Ko-fi page . Create a FREE account, today, on and follow us on to get the inside baseball on what we're doing as a podcast. You don't have to buy us a coffee or join a membership tier (for as little as a $1): it's the only place where we post our recording sessions, unedited episode recordings, and our new ideas to get your feedback (rather than on Social Media). Don't want to wait for these episodes to release via the audio podcast? They're already up on our YouTube Channel, here:
