Val meets some hairy bois, who immediately get the SoCal 80’s makeover treatment. Goldbloom does his best goldbloom while blue glooming. Oh, and surprise — Damon Wayans is totally black, so he has to carry out a dance competition.
If your ears aren’t burning for more, we don’t know how to reach your out-of-this-earth’s-touch heart, Applauder. But don’t say we didn’t blurp blop boo beep you first.
Yeah, we speak alien. We took a class. Gina Davis taught it. It was nice.
And now for something completely different, Applauders! From the Children’s Classic, “The Neverending Story” to the suspiciously non-child friend title of “Earth Girls Are Easy”, it should become clear to you soon that Season 2 is going to be a wild mashup of other-worldly film reviews.
Join us on the first stretch of our review, where we should probably admit first — the aliens don’t even show up in our conversation until next week. First, we have like a billion breakup songs to sing together.
Wait, you’re still interested?
Well go get it girl! These podcasts ain’t cheap!

Our review of 1984’s “The Neverending Story” may have ended, but we’ve still got more weeks to fill until February’s Episode 6!
Listen as Lukas adds his own spin to our observations of the ivory tower, the power of resurrection, and a couple of auntie-imposed life lessons from host, Naomi.
Congrats, Applauder, and welcome to the final, final end of the first episode of Season 2!
Atreyu completes his fantastic journey, nearly killing the actor in the process. Bastian has an existential crisis that he can’t narrate himself out of. Garbage Pale kids find their possible inspiration in some alleyway bullies.
You’ll find all of this, plus our end-of-episode qualms and celebrations, right here!
This isn’t the “ending ending”, though! Join us next week for our special end-of-month listener update episode, including Naomi’s interview with “actual kid” Lukas, about this fantastic children’s film from ’84.
Spend some time with giant turtles and little tiny science nerds, as we let our luck drag on through this endless review of 1984’s “The Neverending Story”.
We’ll question our very identity as an audience while trolling the swamps of sadness. We’ll oggle at the mammaries of the Southern Oracle. And, we’ll prepare for Bastian’s acceptance as the reluctantly wishful savior of Fantasia.
Join us next week for the final part of our review. And, join us in two weeks for our special episode and interview with “actual kid” Lukas!
Join us (even Jonathan) as we dumpster dive for drama, fly over some Fantasia factoids, and reminisce over our much younger interpretations of Germany’s big budget puppet show.
We’ve got four weeks of content for this episode, so get ready to quest with us! Let’s ditch math class together and go back to schooling our imaginations.
We’ll be back with Part 2 in one week!
