Join us for a discussion on anything from our favorite Terrible Boys to the profitability of grown men dressing up as Bulbasaur and loudly shouting their own names.

    Mortified! Episode 108: Hooty and the Owlbear (The Owl House)

    This week, Aaron and Leyla take a LISTENER RECOMMENDATION(!!) and venture into the Boiling Isles to watch the Owl House. Join us for a discussion of baby queers we can't necessarily relate to but want to protect, the progressive sledgehammer-wielders inside the TV Animation branches of your favorite media monopolies, and owl tubes.

    Mortified! Episode 107: A Widower on Family-Based Parole (Fast and Furious)

    This week, Aaron and Leyla tunnel their way back to the Fast franchise with Fast and Furious (not THE Fast and THE Furious, which is the first movie; Fast and Furious, the fourth one). Join us for discussions of the perfect angel-to-devil ratios, Catholicism cameos, and the insidious full-circle return to James Cameron's influence.

    Mortified! Episode 106: Clown Fights with Clown, Esquire (The Joker)

    This week, Leyla gets dragged kicking and screaming against her will by two people she thought were her friends (Aaron and our special guest, Marti) to watch 2019's 'The Joker.' Join us for a discussion of how we live in a society, Joaquin Phoenix's ribs, and being terminally diagnosed as clown. 

    You can find Marti and their excellent games at http://heartforge.itch.io and http://heart-forge.tumblr.com!

    Mortified! Episode 105: Can Someone Tell Us if Kuroko is Dead? (Sports Anime Sampler)

    Mortified! Episode 105: Can Someone Tell Us if Kuroko is Dead? (Sports Anime Sampler)

    This week, we finally return to our regular episode format and tomfoolery with a sports anime sampler! We watched three episodes of Captain Tsubasa, Kuroko's Basketball, and Yowamushi Pedal. Join us for discussions of whether or not boys who are terrible at basketball are also dead, an explanation of hyperlocal Western New York pasttimes, and too many Naruto comparisons for anyone's comfort. 

    Do you have a genre of anime you think we should sample? More sports anime for our perusal? E-mail us at mortifiedpod@gmail.com!
