Discussion

Once again, several topics of discussion this week! Nemesis and Alca7raz first get into the recently released Ponies: The Anthology VI. Yes, the hour long video of jokes, memes, and references. They’ll get into what they thought of it and how it compares to previous anthologies. There were also more Equestria Girls shorts! Not as many as last time, so it goes by pretty quick.

But of course, “Fame and Misfortune” is the primary topic this week. And, well… they definitely weren’t expecting such a meta episode. Of course they get into specifics on the episode, but they also have a lot to say about creators, critics, and the fandom at large. They even think that the fandom as a whole can definitely learn something from this episode, even the people who think it doesn’t apply to them.
