Sunday night, after 25 years, Twin Peaks has returned. Cory!! discusses his reaction to the original series and breaks down the two episodes that aired on Showtime Sunday night. It’s an instant reaction podcast, unedited, unfiltered and a reaction to the fact that It Is Happening Again.
It’s Spring in Minnesota, which means it’s time for severe weather. Joe and Cory!! talk about the radio you listen to when you’re worried about a tornado. That then leads into a SHORT discussion fo old time radio shows. Cory!! loves that stuff because he’s old.
So, they go through the free comic book day issues that they have read so far, like:

- Doctor Who
- Spongebob Squarepants
- Buffy, The Vampire Slayer: The High School Years
