Discussion

Returning from a small break, Alca7raz and Nemesis discuss the recently released “A Brony Tale!” Yes, the new documentary about the fandom is out, and they have watched it. The two of them will tell you what they think of it, including the inevitable comparison to “Bronies.” Did it turn out to be any good?

They also have a quick discussion about issue #21 of the My Little Pony comic. Just how does the Trixie-centric issue fare? Are they happy with it, or disappointed? You’ll have to listen to find out!

By the way, no fan content this week. Sorry!
