160. WandaVision

This week Gemma, James and Gabrielle sit down to discuss the hit Disney+ tv programme WandaVision. 

They do a deep dive into the tv programme covering parts which we've all seen, but Gabrielle who brings the background knowledge from the comics brings a much deep insight to this programme. This really is a fascinating and great listen for those of you who enjoyed WandaVision. There will be moments when you listen and go "Ahhh, now that makes sense" and "Oooo, I didn't think of that". We also go through the fan-theories the Tadpoles provided.

Why don't you just listen, then that way I won't need to write all of this stuff. :p Haha! I kid of course, I will always write stuff for the Salty Tadpoles.

129. Steve Ashton

James was busy attending to his "glory holes" for the grand COV-ID free re-opening of "Stafford Holes", so Gemma called upon a friend of the show, Mr Steve Ashton for help. 

Without a second thought, Steve swooped in to the rescue. Find out what Steve called his Granny as a small child. How lockdown has been. What TV programs and films we've both been watching. What's invisible that would be cool to see in real life? And what scared us out as children?

For those who don''t know, Steve can be found on the Ralph Report with Ralph Garman + Eddie Pence, join the patreon here: https://theralphreport.com/, for as little as 15¢ a day (plus tax) you can be a member of the Garmy. 

Gemma is a BAD host and forgot to ask Steve for his socials but luckily the power of the internet meant she could fine them:
