WYSBW: The Great British Bake Off

When The Bannermen asked Ivan & Red to discuss The Great British Bake Off, they assumed it was a niche interest, and made it a patreon reward. Well, the response to that first episode blew them away and they’ve decided to cover the entire Series (AKA Season, for Americans) 7 of #GBBO on Patreon as well as release the first episode in the main feed. Everyone deserves a chance to hear Ivan talk Drizzle cake.

WYSBW: AMC’s Preacher

Preacher, a high profile comic book adaptation that was formative to Ivan‘s view of people as meat bags, is a show that improves on the comic book?in its adaptation of women and hairstyles?and vastly disappoints. At Ivan’s behest, they both watched the first two episodes in addition to Red reading the first four comic books in the series. This was originally done for the show’s patreon months ago, and there’s a new patreon exclusive episode up this week, so if you wanted support this podcast, I’m not going to stop you.
