Discussion

Nemesis and Alca7raz got a last minute surprise topic with the release of two new Equestria Girls shorts: “Coinky-Dink World” and “Good Vibes!” But they were able to watch them. And discuss them. They’re both music videos, and both of them are pretty enjoyable. But one a bit more so than the other.

But the bulk of discussion was about “A Health of Information!” The episode they thought was going to be about Fluttershy and Zecora turned out be me mostly Fluttershy with some Twilight… And Zecora. They also talk about another Legend of Magic, Meadowbrook. Plus sleep deprivation, trees burning down, and masks. And bees. My god.
