You thought it was done. You thought it was over. But it's not over, and nothing is ever done. The Cyberpunk Librarian and the L0WL1F3 Podcast are back for part two of their descent into madness - a deep dive into Super Mario Bros: The Motion Picture.
This one is tagged explicit for a reason. If you’re normally listening to the show with kids… you may want to wait on this one until the kiddos have gone to bed.

I am thoroughly enjoying this show. High tech low budget is a way of life!
A unique voice with useful information for informational professionals, Mr. Messer talks shop and shares ideas that could very well be a graduate-level course.
I can't believe there's an interested audience for this show. Moreover, I can't believe I'm one of them.
