This one is a lot. We lose Alex and Nadia in the same episode, which has to be one of Krista's worst fears for the show. We see Ben do the unthinkable - summon the Smoke Monster - and the fracture of Locke's group when Claire's house is blown up, and Sawyer finally decides he's had enough of this sh...
***ICYMI: The Dark Tower, Book 7: The Dark Tower- Part 2, Chapters 3, 4, & 5***Alright folks. Here's the deal. Stephen King done fucked up. There, I said it. You know it. I know it. Everyone knows it. Maybe someday in the not-so-distant future I will look back at this moment and this post and chide myself for not having more faith. But, children, today is not that day. Walter, The Man In Black, Flagg, whatever you want to call him, is dead. He died in a sad, pathetic way that was not worthy of him, to a foe who was also not worthy of him, and I'm extremely bummed out to see how King neutered a man who had been so very promising by turning his victories from other books into cheap tricks. Not only that, but he was compelling. I wanted to know more about him! And instead I get to spend the rest of the book with Mordred, whom I couldn't give less of a shit about. Meanwhile, our crew of gunslingers is taken through an interdimensional doorway that is starting to "go bad", and it takes a few minutes for them to recover from the vomiting before they realize that they've been joined by an odd crew of misfits who all seemed to be expecting them. Turns out, these dudes are all Breakers who have defected from the Crimson King's grand plan. They live in Algul Siento, which is basically a cartoonishly beautiful town that sits in the middle of a howling, blistered, scoured-bare wasteland like some kind of desert mirage. These guys have their reasons for joining up here, but mostly those reasons seem kind of lame and I'm not sold on any of this. But I guess we shall see! Thanks so much for listening, and I will see you soon ... See MoreSee Less

***ICYMI: The Dresden Files, Book 6: Blood Rites, Chapters 7, 8, & 9***I mentioned the artwork I'm using for this post in last week's episode, and it turns out that this is the artwork used on the Dresden Wiki! James Marsters very much works for me as Harry, and I would like to submit a motion to have his face on all the fanart, please and thank you. This episode is the one where the malocchio comes for its first victims that Harry witnesses. He manages to jump in and save them, but it's a near thing, and the girl who is hurt the worst is going to have scars on her neck that will probably prevent her from working as an actress ever again. Harry is really bothered by this whole thing, both because the killer got so close to succeeding and because the curse is so strong and moves so quickly that he's not sure he will be able to stop it when it strikes again. There's a lot going on in this book, and I'm eager to hear what you all think of it! Thanks so much for listening, and I will see you again soon! www.spreaker.com/user/9387737/dresden-files-book-6-blood-rites-chapter_2... See MoreSee Less
NEW PATREON PERK ANNOUNCEMENT!I'm only putting the first episode as wide-release so that everyone can get a sense of it. From Episode 2 onward, Unsober! Squad-Casts will be an exclusive perk to $20+ Patrons, and here's why I chose that high a tier: RoShawn and I will be splitting all the $20 tier profits 50/50, and adding a whole new show to our recording schedule is no joke so it really needed to be worth our while. This episode is about Being Sick, and it's kind of funny because I start off the episode talking about how I'm not really sick and it's just allergies, but...it turns out I was actually sick and just in denial. RoShawn shares her thoughts on the Neti-Pot, and I read an advice column question that has us both ready to call the cops. ... See MoreSee Less
Official Post from UNspoiled!: It's a momentous day. Today is the first time I will be releasing a podcast that doesn't have anything to do with any sort of media whatsoever, and is instead just a conversation between RoShawn and me. I'm only putting the first episode as wide-release so that everyon...
I wish I could pay that much right now. I'm already having to drop down to a $1 cause I am currently jobless. I got an interview next week though so if that pans out I'm all in! Any excuse to give you guys more money (who really needs one though, lol).
