    Episode 56 - S1E6 - Double Identity

    Episode 56 - S1E6 - Double Identity

    We are joined by Jacob Haller of the Love YA Like Crazy Podcast this week. 
    We talked a lot about cars this week, and Dawn’s dead grampa’s porn. 
    Rachel invites everyone to “come at” her controversial opinion that The Godfather is only so-so, as we stumble our way through pronouncing Italian words in this very Godfathery episode. 
    We discuss how desirable a mafia job “Lady Watcher” might be. What are some other cliché mafia assignments that might feel demeaning to receive?
    Jacob flouts our episode rating system, and Rachel gives what might be her lowest fashion score yet.
     
    Our next episode is Season 5, Episode 7: Deliver Us From Evil

    Today’s episode is Black and White on Fire, Season 3 Episode 7
    CW: Racism, Violence, Sexism and Language 
    Summer Contest!  Final week!
    Dawn and Rachel discuss donuts, Rex Manning Day, the complexity of eggs for breakfast, Hamilton and the shade Rachel throws at Dawn and future guest Sarah Ifft Decker’s Chicago visit. Oh let’s not forget Dawn covers her bougie, yet passive K12 education in the intro. Rachel gives a ringing endorsement on while all of us need library cards too.
    This episode centers around the Watts Rebellion of 1965. We provide a brief history toward the beginning of the episode. Also the entire subject sadly still feels very 2018.

    Episode 54 - S3E4 - One Strobe Over the Line

    In this episode we are joined by Dave Stone Robb to discuss one of the most important Quantum Leap related issues we’ve yet to come across: when making ramen noodles, what does “too brothy” mean to you?
    Sam has leapt into the world of high fashion and daaaamn is he making that white denim work for him. Important lessons we learn include, drugs do not make you young and/or beautiful and don’t splash champagne in a lion’s face - no matter how well trained you think it is.
    We have a contest going on! Do you actually *like* the movie Road House?? (Why? It’s so bad, says Rachel.) So you want to win Rachel’s DVD? Mint condition! Only viewed once! Write us a review on Apple Podcasts/iTunes! We will pick our favorite at the end of the month and send you the most roundhouse kickingest movie around.

    Episode 52 - S3E5 - The Boogiem*n

    This week...are we a Lord of the Rings podcast now? No! But Rachel finally watched the movies so we had to talk about them. 
    This is one of the spoOkier episodes we've watched, and we learn that both Dawn and Rachel are particularly susceptible to spOokiness. 
    What is a deacon? We don't know! Returning guest Parker says a few steps below pope?
    As expected, Rachel is alone in her strong feelings about which version of The Shining is best (STEVEN WEBER FOR LIFE)
    Dawn throws major shade at chiropractors. Major. Shade. 
    Can someone please tell us the plot of My Blue Heaven? We have literally no idea.
    Our next episode covers Season 4, Episode 4 Justice

This Is How To Relive Quantum Leap!

Quantum Leap was my all time favorite show growing up, but I was having a hard time getting into it 30 years later until I found this podcast! I'm absolutly in love with watching it with Dawn and Rachel. I feel like I'm sitting with some great friends laughing, cringing, and googling at Scott Bakula. Love this podcast!

Insightful, Thoughtful, Hilarious!

Listen to two MaxFun Luminaries start their own pod, and explore the great tv show Quantum Leap. Each crawls through the minefield that is White Savior TV of the 1990s and always emerge the other side in as clean as Al's suits! Get some laughs in, and of course learn about time, space, past, present, and future!

Fun Times

If you had asked me if I watched Quantum Leap as a kid, I would have said yes but wouldn't have been able to give you specifics. Having listened to this podcast, it turns out I watched SO MANY episodes, they were just tucked away in some weird corner of my brain.

This podcast is a delightful nostalgia bomb.
