28: Frosty the Snowlem
Is Frosty who he says he is? Can Levar Burton read? What incredible risk did Matthew take as he rewatches the early MCU movies?
In this episode we discuss mystical creatures such as golems, hevisaurs, Elcor, murder whales, camelcorns, and colonels, followed by space exploration, books & reading, and what’s happening in video games.
