Topic Time! -  Nothing so we talk about podcasting for like four minutes

Episode Discussion: Beauty and the Manticore - Golden Harvest finds herself whisked away to a magical castle after her father is kidnapped by a Manticore Prince. Can she reach out to the beast before the spell shackles him in the form forever?


Hello Apple Cider, Chef Sandy, Starry Night, and Guest(s),

I wish to first give you some obligatory (and well deserved) praise. Your podcast is second to none in the brony community and I know from personal experience how hard it can be to put in so much work on a weekly basis. Keep up the good work!

My question is about a specific type of merchandise, vinyl magnets of cutie marks, specifically of Luna's cutie mark. I have seen some of these (Applejack, Celestia, and Rainbow Dash) for sale on Etsy and I found a guide for how to make your own on DeviantArt which looked rather involved but I thought I'd pick your brains to see if you've seen Luna's mark for sale anywhere. I drive a black car and I think having Luna's cutie mark on my 'flanks' would be a cool and subtle nod to the show.

Thanks very much for your time and consideration. Your show is one of the highlights of my week.

P.S. Chef Sandy you have convinced me to attend Nightmare Nights Dallas. It has been far too long since I've been out to the metroplex and I love all the coverage you've given the con on the show.

P.P.S. Applejack is best pony as she's the most level-headed of the bunch. As Twilight Sparkle once said, "All the ponies in this town are CRAZY!"

Hallow and welcome, welcome to bronyville episode 97 I'm a listener Twisted Haywire, and with me tonight in the chat we most likely have Rusty headphones, Panzer Pony, the always lovely Random Fan filly 408 and many others.

Since you are now giving dating advise I would like to ask some thing.

In few weeks ago in the chat the questions "can Filly and Colt just be friend" was asked.

I would say yes, but what do you say.

I why don't fillies just say if they want to be something more then just friends?

p.s. I'll be 28 this Tuesday, and I hope this is the year I find someone, it is still less the 8 years since I was last in a relationship.

Hey everybody,

A while ago I asked what kind of music seemed under-represented.  Or, at least I remember asking it.  Maybe I didn't.

At any rate, reggae kept coming up, so I decided to write a song about one of your pet subjects...headcanon.

Please enjoy and keep up the fantastic job; we'll need more content with the upcoming months.

Hugs and (dark chocolate) kisses,


Hey Cider and Sandy.


Big fan of the show, you guys are pretty great. Here’s some things I drew.



I enjoy hearing your sane voices amongst this insane fandom.




(Best pony is Scootaloo. Spike’s fabulous as well.)

Dear Princess Celestia,

Today Sandy is out and-- ::neck dart:: …  *thud*


Haha!  Insurrection initiated!



Dearest Solar Princess,

Right about the time your sister Luna was visiting Ponyville, during Nightmare Night, I discovered a certain colorful equine themed podcast.  Much time has passed since then, and this week, I was honored with the opportunity to guest host in Sandy’s absence.  This is unspeakably special for me, because without these folks, I dare say that I might not be as invested in the fandom as I am.  I certainly wouldn’t have met my co-conspirator, Alpha, and we certainly wouldn’t be casting pods ourselves.  Please give AC my thanks when he wakes up.

Your faithful student,

Five Iron

P.S. I’m not entirely sure why I tranquilized AC to tell you that.
