In this week’s episode, Karen is renaming her Viper Pilot Socks and waffling about yet another project, while Maggie has a finished object and is slogging away on the Quilt of Doom. There are some fannish disappointments (JACKSOOOOOOOON!! *shakes fist*) and some squealing (POTTERMORE!) along with in-depth discussion about the tension between networks and fans, as well as some SPOILERY discussion of Captain America (28:05-43:40) which includes use of the phrase “man titty”.
No, really. There’s a reason we use the explicit tag, people.
