#237 - There Is No Eden, Blastoise

In a world where everyone falls under the umbrella of GAMER, and NERD culture is the same as POP culture, what place does nostalgia hold? Adventures in replaying Pokémon Yellow leads to a dystopic nightmare where E-sports stars get their arms sawed off. (Let's Play a Game, as Jigsaw said.) We don't know where this will lead, but for now we are only happy that it's-a-live! Even if it took a thunderbolt or two...

#235 - Scandinavia Club

Speculation about the decline of the Roman Empire (which apparently started in year 235 according to some people) leads us to wonder what a Scandinavian Union would look like, and how it might operate. Then Anders talks about the EU for a long while and I proceed to yell at him about sushi. Good times.

The alternative title for this episode is Tiny Dishes, Tiny Minds.

#229 - You Take The Banana

What are the Chinese most known for? Is the answer FOOD? Sure, Sweden has no food culture, and we unimaginatively name dishes after what they are made of, but that doesn't mean you should go crazy and start burning cook books, Anders! Dollop.

#227 - How To Deal With Nazis

How to deal with Nazis should be a joke or a history lesson but sadly it is not. This week we sit down to discuss how to deal with Nazis AND door-knocking religious people... Don't worry though, we still get some jokes in! We've retired the Nazi bell because it would be deafening at this point. Oh and also Jakob is a soberist now, which is not a word but yeah you get it.

#225 - How To Marry Severus Snape

Severus Snape has gotten married a thousand times or so in fanfiction, and we go through a few of those. Who is the luckiest bride, Lily Evans or Harry Potter? Well Snape/Harry is predictably more popular, but what about Super Mario, does he get in on the fun?! In this episode of Hello There, the Harry Potter Review and Fanfiction Podcast, we discuss plot holes in the Harry Potter books and whether they should be filled by nose snot-nosed brats online, and we wonder if good old H.P. will make it to Mars! We also read fanfiction a lot.

#223 - Candalf

Anders read a terrible translation of The Hobbit and for years he thought that Gandalf was called Candalf. Obviously we are able to fill up about half a show with this. We also discuss sexuality and hey who doesn't love to hear two white doods talk about that, so come one, come all!
