162 - They Defeated Them With Donuts - Week of 5/29/19

The Fellowship is pleased to present our discussion of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles with special guest Eddie Medina (host of the Rantcor Pit and Figments podcasts). Eddie gives us an energetic lesson in the Turtles (he clearly gets excited about them), with interesting facts and stories about the original comic series, the toys, the cartoons, the movies, and a whole lot of other stuff. Plus our usual silly talk, as well as our picks of the week.
