THIS WEEK: Sven and Van must recap the Mythos arc having lost the chief thing keeping this podcast anywhere near focused - Alexa. In addition, Greek Gods were apparently really fond of Tetsujin 28; Sven's Japanese is very, very rusty; Dr. Gaia is a crazy person even by the standards of Black Ghost, goth eyeliner is indistinguishable from Evil Brainwashing eyeliner; Joe finally gets a chance to show his actual character; Van blames the baby; and our favorite hero is Extreme Depression Man.
