This week we're in 1995 to watch the good bad video game madness of Moral Kombat! With special guest Isabel Zaw-Tun we first go over the Canadian tale of Madeleine Parent, Union organizer and person who helped before hopping over to a much sillier kind of fight in Mortal Kombat, a movie with lizard people, ice folks and a scorpion fella with the tone of a teen ski comedy.

This week Alan Shane Lewis is back again, this time to jump on the emotional grenade that is Pixar's 2017 movie: Coco.  First we go over some guesses people made a long time ago about what happens when we die, and then watch a lighthearted children's film about that very same question!

It was bad, we had fun!
