S07.E12: Tunes For Tots

Update: 2022-10-10


It's the last of our divisional finals! Who will be the third contestant to advance to the season championship match? Will it be Rob? Or Scott? Or Liz? Or maybe a fourth contestant will crash the record, chloroform the other contestants and stroll to a leisurely, unfulfilling victory leading to record low ratings that will, in short order, doom the podcast? Only one way to find out; ask a friend who listens.

🐯 The RRR Scorebreak: RRR: The only movie with the courage to defeat colonialism with a dance off. And a tiger. [8/10. And an elk-based murder. Would be higher, but we record these far enough in advance that no one will remember a Netflix movie from the Summer.]
