First up this week we’ve gotta talk about Spider-Man, because we just watched Far From Home! No, not No Way Home. Far From Home. Yes, three years after it came out. We have no excuses. But we sure did love it. Listen in as we talk about the things we loved, the stuff that maybe... The post Binary System Podcast #299: Spider-Man: Far From Home, and …
 
Kathryn FINALLY finished watching Black Widow (I was only a week behind you, doofus – Kathryn) (SO SLOW. – Elizabeth) so we’ve got to dive into all the reasons why it was, if not perfect, still really, really fun. First up though, we’ve got the weekly SitRep, and our opinions on the recent Joss Whedon... The post Binary System Podcast #298: Lore Ol…
 
Okay, when we say we’re talking about the Black Widow movie, we mean we’re talking about the first forty-five minutes, because Elizabeth was juuust a little better at movies this week and Kathryn still needs to catch up. First though we have to talk about two episodes of Lore Olympus, one of which happens to... The post Binary System Podcast #297: …
 
It’s the last episode of 2021! Here’s hoping 2022 behaves itself a little better. This week we recap one of the last few Lore Olympus episodes before their four-month hiatus, where Zeus is playing dumb, Ares is poking the bear, and Demeter is going to lose her frigging mind. After that (Spoiler warning!) we fangirl... The post Binary System Podcast…
 
This week we’re recapping the TWO HUNDREDTH episode of Welcome To Night Vale, where the moon is closed for renovations, a star is powering the football stadium, and an ancient god is trying to get equal time on the radio. After that we jump into Lore Olympus and discuss the real reason why Hades banned... The post Binary System Podcast #295: WTNV #…
 
After a weekly SitRep that’s equal parts bummer and bonus (Covid is still scary, but Omicron is possibly mild, we lost Anne Rice this week, but sister Hannah is on the mend) we jump into Lore Olympus (WE ARE ALL THE BLUSHING CHICKEN) and discuss how the first two episodes of Hawkeye are very fun,...

The days are getting shorter, and the nights are getting longer, and soon winter will be upon us. Night Vale citizens will need to hoard everything they can to survive (yes, even that box of stale Flavoroos on the counter.) To help out, the Night Vale Sanitation Department is allowing everyone to comb through the... The post Binary System Podcast #…

If you’ve been reading Lore Olympus (and if you’re not you really should) you know that everybody’s been waiting over two years for Hades to find out a certain piece of information, and how he’d react when he did. We found out this week, and it was everything we’d hoped for. (Obviously, MAJOR SPOILERS AHOY... The post Binary System Podcast #292: Lo…

Happy Thanksgiving everyone! (Or if you don’t celebrate, happy Thursday.) Everybody needs a night off, so Cecil and Carlos have hired a babysitter and set off with their friend Larry Leroy to Night Vale’s new art gallery. It’s in the middle of the Whispering Forest, so here’s hoping everyone survives (Night Vale, if 198 episodes... The post Binary …

This week we’re discussing the latest Lore Olympus, where Hermes and Thanatos and that bitch Thetis are finally done talking, and now Hades is going to make sure that Persephone gets a word in edgewise or so help him he will STRANGLE ZEUS WITH HIS TIE.

Well, we had “The Many Lives of Frank Chen“, “The Many Many Lives of Frank Chen“, and “The Nearly Infinite Lives of Frank Chen“. It makes sense that the saga of Night Vale’s most famous dearly-departed would wrap up with “The Life of Frank Chen.” It’s a quiet, weirdly heartwarming story that’s very satisfying (other...

This week we’re recapping a Night Vale episode where Silas the Thief rants about his ex girlfriend, and a Lore Olympus episode where Hermes takes up all the time on the stand. Hang on. We’ve been here before. But yes, first we discuss the Night Vale news that gives us A COMPLETELY DIFFERENT OUTLOOK on... The post Binary System Podcast #287: WTNV #1…

The latest episode of Welcome to Night Vale was definitely interesting, a bit of a departure from their usual style, and OH MY GOD DID YOU SEE WHAT THEY DID AT THE END HOLY COW THIS CHANGES LITERALLY EVERYTHING.

It’s the final 2021 Vacation Edition of the podcast, and since we’ve spent the last week binging all of Ted Lasso season 1, we had to bring on special guest Hannah Wallace to discuss all the reasons why this ridiculously charming show makes for perfect pandemic watching, and how it relates to Hannah’s current favorite...

The Vacation Podcast edition continues, this week we’re broadcasting from an undisclosed location in the North Carolina Mountains. (Boone. We’re vacationing in Boone. Go App State!) But thanks to the internet we’re cut off from absolutely none of the things we love, and we found out what the Lore Olympus Fast Pass people were freaking... The post B…
 
It’s the first Vacation Edition of Binary System in over two years! Recording from the same time zone in the same place, this week we planned on a quick recap of the latest episode of Night Vale (the Sherif’s Secret Police is never going to get this Frank Chen thing right, mostly because he dead)...

With all of the amazing content that we need to get caught up on, it’s no surprise to anybody that we’re taking the time to watch TV and movies that we’ve already seen. Multiple times. But, you know, pandemic, serotonin, comfort watching. So Elizabeth’s rewatching Peaky Blinders and Kathryn rewatched Sunshine, but we did at... The post Binary Syste…
 
It’s a pretty quick recap of Welcome to Night Vale This Week (TL:DR Consultants are annoying even in Night Vale, and Elizabeth can do a very passable imitation of the “You’ve got a message” sound effect on Slack). And that’s good, because we needed to devote a lot of time to a very in-depth discussion... The post Binary System Podcast #281: WTNV #1…
 
If you know us you know that we’re always interested in the newest movies and TV shows that have hit the nerd world! We just wait six months or more to watch them. Which is why Elizabeth only just now got around to watching the first episode of Lovecraft Country, and instead of watching current... The post Binary System Podcast #280: board games, L…
 
You know those dreams, the ones where you’re watching a movie you really really love, except your favorite character is played by a different actor, and the plot has changed, and the soundtrack sounds like owls hissing and there’s a strange figure glaring at you in the background of every single shot? Cecil experiences something... The post Binary …
 
After the weekly SitRep (vaccination numbers, fish tanks, and mask peer pressure) we jump right into the second season of Beastars. Macho lions and meat-eating deer? A wolf in drag? The hallucination with the moth?? We’re very confused, but we do know the homoerotic subtext is text and goes to a really dark place. After... The post Binary System Po…
