006 - Encino Man with Allegra Ringo
It looks like we've settled upon Monday as our release date for this podcast, and what better a way to celebrate that commitment to a set schedule than with an episode about an unfrozen caveman familiarizing himself with the scheduling rigors of high school.

001 - Now You See Me with Demi Adejuyigbe
In Actually Good, hosts Mike Pearl and Justin Caffier bring on a guest to help resuscitate a universally reviled cultural artifact. In our inaugural episode, tv writer and podcaster Demi Adejuyigbe (@electrolemon) attempts to defend the Now You See Me film franchise.   Are these performance-packed prestidigitation pictures poorly-penned and problematic piffle or are they perhaps the pinnacle of popcorn pleasure?
