This week on a truly rancid episode of Who Wants to Be a Superhero? the heroes are degraded and humiliated by their friends and families before being forced to degrade and humiliate some actors pretending to be prisoners. It just goes to show you, there are no rules, and every choice is a conscious choice. Content warning for brief discussion of suicide for about 30 seconds starting at 1:16:05.

Talk about a blast from the past! This week Alec and Val and the cast of Elementary take a trip down memory lane as we watch Season 1 Episode 8, The Long Fuse. We check our savings at the Saucy Lizard Bank, and Alec clues us in on some Disney knowledge. This episode of LMNOP features an extensive musical break (a capella) after Val tells Alec that that one Spin Doctors song is by the Spin Doctors. Join our discord!
Hot on the heels of last week's episode where the heroes were given a test of courage and a test of reality show drama, the heroes are given a test of courage and a test of reality show drama. However, not everything is the same! They also face their toughest challenge yet: being normal for ten seconds while buying lunch! Sam | Val | Gigalithic Twitter
(The P stands for pee.) This week, Alec and Val visit Little Soccer Chechnia, by way of a heated discussion of Cinderella's motives, with a stopoff at a murder most fart. We watched season 1 episode 7, One Way to Get Off. The title kind of refers to what you think it does, and kind of not. This episode has a serial killer, and we all know serial killers are pervs. We are also graced with a cameo by producer of the show Balto, who has a lot of talents. Join our new discord!

On this week's episode of Who Wants to Get Attacked by Dogs? the superheroes get attacked by dogs. They also write rude notes to each other and get a makeover. What a show! One of the superheroes even gets a new name by mistake! Wow! You're not gonna see anything like this on any other reality show - and according to the pre-challenge disclaimer, you shouldn't be seeing it here either. Ah well, everyone makes mistakes.

This week we make LMNOP history as we welcome our first-ever guest, the lovely and hilarious alex leafcrunch! We all watched a "pilot" episode, season 1 episode 6 Flight Risk. Do you get it? It's about a plane. But our episode is about much more- like pirate jesus, sh!tting and f@rting, american/canadian cereal differences, and dad conspiracy theories. Y'know, normal stuff.
Greetings, true believers! Welcome to the first episode of Zero to Zero: a Who Wants to Be a Superhero? podcast! If you're not familiar with this garbage reality show from 2006, congratulations! You're normal! This week we meet our 12 I mean 11 I mean 10 contestants, some of whom are pretty alright. But how will they respond to Stan Lee's first devilish challenge: sympathy for a crying child?! Let's find out! Sam | Val | Gigalithic Twitter
What the fuck is up, gamers! Today, Val Matt and alex discuss the supreme court, reopening schools, the Liberal Party of Canada, and other extremely fun, relatable topics! No Brasilian presidents were harmed in the filming of this podcast. Due to some technical issues, Val’s audio is rough but improves around 13 minutes in. Apologies for that! Hosts: matt gamecube, val flightcub, alex leafcrunch (who also edited) Music used: The Taxpayers - Evil Men Gary Jules - Mad World Koji Kondo - Super Mario Bros. 2 Overworld Theme
After watching season 1 episode 5, Lesser Evils, Alec and Val do our darnedest to figure out what PhD stands for. We also get dating advice from Dave, a very insignificant character, whose name is the only one we remember. This episode features such guest stars as that guy from Stranger Things, and that guy from Breaking Bad! It's set in a hospital for the most part, so Joan shows off her doctor knowledge, and we show off our complete lack thereof.
Val and Alec discuss S1E4, Rat Race. What if it was about a rat rave instead? That would be cool, but it's not, it's about sociopathic investment bankers. Joan goes on a date and flexes her investigator muscles, Sherlock does some accents, we have fun, and we learn something about friendship along the way.
