    17: Stakes, Eating, Patterns, and Eurydice

    The Stakes miniseries on Adventure Time has concluded and it's up to Conversation Parade hosts John Moe and Open Mike Eagle to figure out what it all means. John's pretty sure there's a message hidden in Marceline's repeated inhalation of vampire souls. For Mike, there is great significance in the characters' life patterns and what happens as a result. Plus, veteran Adventure Time storyboard artist Ako Castuera tells Mike about death, Greek mythology, and making Marceline happen.

    16: Vampires, De-Vampirizing, and Olivia Olson

    We're halfway through the Stakes miniseries and hosts John Moe and Open Mike Eagle are on hand to wade through what we've seen. Marceline's attempt to rid herself of vampirism has led to unexpected unleashing of many old vampire foes. Can she really ever escape them? Or her past? Or herself? Also, what's the deal with the creepy cow dancing? Plus, we check in with the voice of Marceline herself, Olivia Olson.

    15: Marceline: Happy as a Clam or the Saddest Person in All Ooo?

    As they prepare to take in the Marceline-centric miniseries Stakes, John and Mike discuss Marceline and who she really is deep down inside. Is she a self-actualized person, fully at peace with herself as a human, a demon, and a vampire? Or is she the saddest, most lonely character in all the Land of Ooo? Also, we check in with Adventure Time's Head of Story, Kent Osborne, about Stakes and about some of the new episodes that recently aired. Kent addresses the question of whether Football is a figment of BMO's imagination or a completely separate being.

    14: Trusting the Process, Digging Dirt Holes, and Jack Pendarvis

    We're five episodes in to the new season of Adventure Time, meaning John and Mike have plenty to talk about on the latest Conversation Parade. Mike has noticed that there's been a lot of talk about trusting the process in some recent stories. He's wondering if it's the King of Ooo saying that or someone much higher up the pecking order. John has been thinking about dirt holes and how each of the five new episodes features dirt holes. Are they graves? Are they gardens? Are they some combination of the two? Plus, we talk to Adventure Time writer and voice of Root Beer Guy (and Dirt Beer Guy) Jack Pendarvis. He was a mild-mannered university professor in Mississippi when he got the call to join Adventure Time. Now he's a mild-mannered cartoon writer who still lives in Mississippi.

    13: Bonnie & Neddy, Varmints, and Ashly Burch

    Adventure Time is back with a new season and Conversation Parade is back as well to help you pick apart what's happening. Bonnie & Neddy introduces us to Princess Bubblegum's younger brother, an easily frightened tree root-sucking dragon, leading Mike to wonder if the whole candy kingdom runs on anxiety. Princess Bubblegum sets off to hunt pumpkin-eating monsters in Varmints and along the way has an existential crisis, leading John to ask who Princess Bubblegum really is now that she’s not a princess. Also, an interview with Ashly Burch. She's a YouTube star turned Adventure Time actor (the voice of Breezy the bee) and now she's been hired to help write the show.

Conversation parade an adventure time podcast

Really great podcast about adventure time. Although I found it a bit harder than usual (for whatever reason) to get into the fist few episodes the podcast has really grown on me.
Pros: great conversation on adventure time: many themes are covered very well, with lots of thoughts and theories that are greatly fleshed out. Direct interviews with the creators and voice actors of adventure time give you a clear view at the production and making of adventure time and the thoughts of many of the creators.
Cons: although the discussions are well thought out the show can sometimes lack structure however episodes with top fives seem to remedy this and the discussion and liveliness of the show really is only getting better. Interviews are over the phone which can sometimes lead to bad quality but are nonetheless very interesting. A MUST watch for any fan of adventure time.

*edit* after spending a bit more time on the podcast "store" I have decided to rate this podcast 5 stars because of of how most other podcasts are rated (the scale seems to be a bit different from movies) and I've decided its worth 5 stars.
