We close out May with a first - new guests met through Twitter! Keith and Andy, cohosts of the animation throwback podcast Toon in Pod, join John to talk all sorts of media. After introductions and various retellings of nostalgic cartoon experiences, John finally gives some in-depth thoughts on the Oculus Rift after owning one since February, particularly how useful it's been in making exercise fun, the new life it's given one of his favorite genres via Beat Saber and several other titles, and why he should never use it when his parrot's around.

For the main discussion, all three discuss one of the most iconic sci-fi cartoons out there with a gargantuan look back at Matt Groening's Futurama. From memories on where the show initially fit into their lives and the glory days of DVD boxsets, to fun facts regarding behind the scenes strife and the voice cast, to discussion of our personal favorite episodes, to the reasons behind the surprisingly smart concepts, and even to some Star Trek memories by proxy of it being a sci-fi show (and one particular guest-packed episode). Make some Bachelor Chow and hunker down for, as we put it, one of the most binge-able shows out there.

It's the end of an era, as John and returning guest Tyler Moliterno talk the pop culture juggernaut that is Avengers Endgame.  The secrecy of this sequel's plot and the promise of closure for this era of the MCU has teased, tantalized, and even worried John, so we lay it all out and go in-depth about the plot, character arcs, surprises, callbacks, and an overall gargantuan talk for an overall gargantuan movie, particularly as John reflects on the journey his favorite film series has taken him and the emotions he's now left with. Expect thoughts on the last Avenger you want to take into battle, what Thanos does or doesn't know, and a Tom Holland observation so hilarious it makes John snort-laugh.
