Discussion

To start things off, Nemesis and Alca7raz go back in time. It’s been about 5 years since the beginning of this podcast. So there’s a bit of reminiscing about 2012 in regards to the fandom. After the nostalgia-fest, they get to some new Equestria Girls shorts! What CMC stands for in the human world and Rainbow Dash’s rap. Oh.

Of course, they talk about the newest FiM episode, “Campfire Tales!” It’s a first for the show, in that it’s an anthology of stories. And those stories have some really cool things in them, which may have something to do with the finale. Also, there’s that comic connection. And the camping itself. That’s a little important.
