Episode Forty-Seven: The Hungry Ghosts Haunting

On episode 47, Tom and Jenny are returning to their fun recaps of “A Haunting” episodes, and this time around, they’re discussing one of the more unusual ones: “Hungry Ghosts,” which was the fifth episode of season two. The wealthy Bishop family move to a company-owned mansion in Taiwan after dad Dennis is given a promotion, but almost from the moment they set foot in the place, creepy things are afoot. Leaky walls, big-ass spiders, footsteps, voices, doors opening by themselves…it’s enough to make mom Candace summon a Taoist priest to rid the gigantic, window-heavy showplace of its pesky spirits. Don’t forget to pack up a picnic basket of fruit, incense, and cash to leave on the front lawn for the unquiet ghosts before tuning in for the latest haunting episode of 13 O’Clock.

Episode Seventeen: Star Wars – Story Themes and the Philosophy of the Force

We love Star Wars, you love Star Wars, everybody loves Star Wars (except for wrong people). In honor of the release of Rogue One, Tom and Jenny take a fun, meandering little nerd-journey through the galaxy far away, tackling such topics as the influence of Eastern religions on Jedi philosophy, the relation of Nietzsche’s writings to the mindset of the Sith, if Han Solo would be considered Force sensitive, who exactly Snoke might be and what his ultimate endgame is, and whether Finn is Lando’s kid or not, goddammit.
