The Lost War: Part Three

Luke and Dan check out the first 3 episodes of the new Netflix show, Shadow and Bone (skip to 13:55 to avoid spoilers). Aranock starts this section off with a pretty shitty decision that Dan can't let slide and Samily needs to make a guest appearance on the show. The boys come up with some cool uses for the magic in the world and plan the heist of the century. Also in a twist, Dan comes up with another wild theory that is big if true.

Special thanks to VOLO for the intro and outro music.

The Lost War: Part Two

Another classic segment of Dan explains it to Luke, what are we doing with Mynygogg you guys? Time for Rasa to ask for a raise cause she has MVP potential for sure. Also we're critiquing a lot of the characters in this section, check out who we think needs to be taken down a peg.

The Lost War: Part One

To warm up Dan makes a quick retraction and Luke become a wedding registry innovator. Seriously, though why has no one done this yet? (11:17 to skip). Dan asks some important questions about the future of bed, and Luke takes us on a journey back to high school. Murders and scams abound and the boys are loving it.
