17 – A Birthday to Yourself

Play

In honor of Roy of the show’s 31st birthday (today, August 19th 2019), the Penguin decided to finally release season 2 just in time for PodRecesses to come back in full swing! Fallon and the birthday lesbian herself (born August 19th 1988) take some time out of their auspicious birthday plans (falling on August 19th) to talk about everything in season 2, episode 1, “Join Hands,” including boyfriend fight choreography, shifty-eyed twinks, arm metal, and the precise definition of a snack machine. Exactly what Laozi (and Roy, for her 31st birthday on the 19th of August) wanted!

16 – Emotional Support Zombie

Play

So, while Fallon is unavailable, Roy and sworn brother of the show Jordan examined the ongoing MDZS/Unilever™ Wall’s™ Cornetto™™™ cross-campaign as well as the trailers for season 2…and then within 28 hours of recording, season 2 dropped. So this probably confirms that promoting capitalism is what it takes to bring about Content. Thanks, Tencent! Until versions of the episodes in a language we can actually understand come out, enjoy an hour and a half of speculation, specialty Iced Creams, and secondhand embarrassment!

15 – The Depressed Peanut Butter Boy-Manic Takis Boy Continuum

Play

**NOTE: Things get a little more spoilerish than usual in the questions segment of this episode. “be warned”**

We did it! A whole season in the qiankun bag! We’re talking about the season 1 finale, “Beautiful Tranquility,” where we hit up the Jim Henson Zombie Workshop and stop by JiaojiaoCon before we embark on Roy ‘n’ Rey’s Transmigration Adventure. Stay tuned after the recap for some announcements! They’re not necessarily super fun, but neither is watching everybody be sad and angry at each other this whole episode, so it’s themes. To us.

14 – Mobile Clout Clinic

Play

The penguin of Tencent is still holding a season 2 release date hostage, but this episode ruled, so it’s fine, probably. Zombies are rising, cultivators are ginding, “someone” is getting that bad vibes bamboo, your hosts are inventing new emojis, IRL straight dudes are getting brutally straightbaited, and nobody in vampire times China is angry or threatened about any of it.

13 – Wen Ruohan is Pokemon GOing to Die

Play

War were declared! Hope y’all are into fighting fascism by yelling about how bad cops are and how good Nie Mingjue is for 80 minutes because that’s pretty much all we do in this episode! Oh, there’s some online horniness, too, I guess, just as a heads up. We’re not the ones who wrote the tentacle episode, though. Take it up with Tencent.

12 – The Voldemort Hole

Play

So this episode kinda kept the party going, unfortunately. But at least this time we’ve got friend/GM/enemy of the show Colin here to give us some literal and figurative tea! We take a look at some deep lore (of the Chinese literary, Taoist, and Roy varieties), dig into the fantasy dad discourse, and refill our women prescriptions.

11 – De-Jacketed Grapes

Play

This episode is no fun whatsoever. But crying is forbidden in the Cloud Recesses, so we had to find a way to get through it, and we did it the only way we know how: by breaking edge! And also talking news, coming up with a funnie slumlord AU, and debuting a new segment. Still not sure whether making a cry is forbidden, but we’re looking into it. Sorry ’bout it!

10 – Anxiously Flossing

Play

It’d be easy to look at the title of episode 10, “Disaster Arises,” and get worried, but lucky for us, we’ve got the Twin Teens of Grant High, Juergen’ It‘s Sam and Jordan Canning, here to help us. Turns out there’s actually zero difference between this week’s episode and The Simpsons S08 E159 “A Milhouse Divided” (1996), except maybe that this one is brought to you by Fortnite.

PodRecesses Extended Universe “Special” #1: Characters

Play

Hey, stuff is kinda weird this week, but since schedule slip is forbidden in the Cloud Recesses, we’ve got a bit of meta for you today! In this “special” “””episode””” we talk all about the characters in this show/novel/ice cream ad vehicle, because there’s a lot of ’em, and they’ve got about 5 outfits between them all. Guest disciple Scout helps us as we navigate back and forth between regular vampire times and double vampire times, separate your -juns from your -bigboys, and determine who can Come Home! Enjoy!
