Discussion

For reasons possibly stemming from insanity, Nemesis and Alca7raz jump into fanon again. They felt they weren’t quite done last time. And they certainly talk long enough to make a case for that opinion. Granted, this time it’s not solely about fanon...

Well, they talk about things like Lyra and humans, and even pony genetics. Yeah, things can be weird. But they also talk about how to interpret some of the stuff that appears in the show, like pony naming conventions. Nemesis also has a long weird theory about Equestrian society. Bear with him. Please. Also, they briefly cover Jim Miller’s recent tweets regarding canon.
