From He-Man to Power Rangers to Hillary Clinton, composer, publisher, producer, and political donor Haim Saban sure has a story. This week, we dive into his musical creations for She-Ra: Princess of Power -- and also consider arts education and the show's resident musician/kinda jerk.

Since the beginning of this show, Shadow Weaver has been Lauren and Eric's favorite character. This week, it's all about her and a bevy of issues she touches -- the intersection of science and religion, technology as a cure for impatience, lust for power, and of course Skeletor. Featuring special guest theology professor Jacob Torbeck!

NEW TO THE NERDOLOGUES! SEASON TWO PREMIERE! Lauren and Eric look at the very beginning of He-Man and She-Ra and consider the recent Netflix documentary The Toys That Made Us with special guests Sam Wells (half-owner of Chicago's incredible vintage toy store Toy De Jour) and Tim Seeley, a guy who literally wrote the book on He-Man toys... and also, it turns out, wrote the brand bible for Netflix's forthcoming She-Ra reboot.

The only way the season could end! Guests JB Anderton, Dean Neilly, and Rachel Pitt join Lauren and Eric to discuss a wide swath of holiday traditions and their media representation against the backdrop of one of the most infamous entries in the He-Man/She-Ra canon. Skeletor has his Grinch moment, Horde helicopters take dubious shapes (we’ll talk about it!), and Prince Adam denies the War on Christmas. This was a nice time. Recorded live at the Cards Against Humanity Theater, and we also had punch & pie, so it’s a little looser than normal. Be warned.

Lauren finally gets to meet one of She-Ra’s colorful friends as we travel to Frosta’s Kingdom of Snows for a brewing conflict with the Selkies over some Horde trickery. Russia’s on the table, and so is the hilarious incompetence of Multi-Bot. With special guest Sean Kelley from Improvised Star Trek!
