A hush-toned therapeutic discussion (recorded at Julian’s grandmother’s house) of the final episode of Sense8 Season 1: I Can’t Leave Her. We dive into this rip-roaring laugh fest of an episode, recapping how little psychological drama and traumatic flashbacks it contained. Tune in for some talk of non-Cosby sweaters and minding the gap at the subway, as well as nostalgia about our favorite 80s funk bands Rocuronium and Sugammadex. Some fact-checks done retrospectively by Julian on things we talked about in this ep: it turns out that frozen glass probably isn’t much easier to break than normal glass, and the Icelandic word “sjúkrabíll” (ambulance) literally means “sick car.” Enjoy!
If you’ve ever wondered how the Sense8 gang lines up with the Scooby-Doo gang, look no further than this episode of Crappy Medium in which we recap Episode 10: What is Human? We also analyze Steiner’s stunning knowledge of TED talks and rename all memorials to “sad places.” Oh, and there’s some talk about how much tequila you can reasonably drink and then operate a vehicle (ideally zero but Lito must have never seen those drunk driving videos from health class). Have fun with it!
In the most digression-heavy episode to date, Julie & Julian discuss Sense8 episode 5: Art is Like Religion. We get some good honest talk about Nantucket elephant weddings, Hamilton remixes, and how to pronounce “yarn skein” (we still aren’t fully sure.) We also give a fair amount of incidental women’s health advice, so stay tuned for that if you’ve always had questions but you’re too afraid to ask!
