Avengers who? Say hello to the most ambitious crossover event in history as Ciarán from Corner Spaeti comes on to give us all the info we need about last week’s Labour leaks, and we commiserate over the universal experience of moderates sabotaging the progressive wing of our country’s party. We also talk about the political alignments of the Mushroom Kingdom denizens, Sean Bean’s nomenclature origins, and O.J. Simpson!

Ciarán can be found on Twitter at @CiaranDold and on Corner Spaeti, which can be found at operationglad.io!

096 – The Entire Country Would Become The Damn Joker

Play

Folks, we may be stuck at Pokémon HOME for the foreseeable future but you can’t deny that soon we’ll be Pokémon Laughing All The Way To The Polls! Join Sara, Val, Matt and the triumphantly returning Caroline for a definitely not pre-recorded livestream because they have all definitely still been alive for the past week. The celebs are at it again, animal crossing stonks are the only ones that matter anymore, and most importantly we reveal the official ice cream of the show. Also they talk about Joe Stories and him being dead a lot but they never say “Joe”st Stories so this is just me punching it up in post. Enjoy!

Can we get some Fs in the chat for the bevy of presidential hopefuls who suspended their campaigns last week? Can we ask ourselves which other adjectives can be used to describe a Tuesday? Can we abolish a country that’s really just three mining companies in a trenchcoat? We’ll take your lack of response as a yes.
