It’s another Travel Edition this week as we brave the wilds of Southeast North America (otherwise known as our parents’ place in Bradenton.) First up is a lightning quick recap of Night Vale as Cecil revisits a very strange kids show and correctly answers the daily puzzle. (It’s entropy. The answer is always entropy.) After...

Only three episodes left of Lore Olympus, and there is a lot going on. We’re not sure how many of the unresolved plot threads are gonna get wrapped up in the series finale (Eros and Psyche? Zeus’s millennia of betrayal? Leto finally getting her comeuppance?), but in the two episodes we’re recapping this week we... The post Binary System Podcast #41…

Okay everybody GIANT SPOILER WARNINGS DANGER DANGER THIS IS NOT A DRILL. So, way back on August 2, 2018 the 24th episode of Lore Olympus was released. Apollo let himself into Persephone’s bedroom and what happened next set in motion a series of events that changed the story forever and made a lot of people...

The Lore Olympus comic tackles a lot of issues about abuse: spousal, parental, generational. The latest two episodes are no exception, but they also don’t really need trigger warnings because the focus here is the response to that abuse. Rachel Smythe gives a balanced look at how abuse victims can overcome the feeling of guilt... The post Binary Sy…

On this week’s Night Vale recap we discuss Abby’s DEEP SEATED RESENTMENT towards Cecil. Some of it is unfair (it’s not Cecil’s fault that Abby had to be the de facto parent because their actual parents sucked) but some of it is valid (let’s face it, Cecil was horrible to Abby’s husband Steve, on the...

You know how we’ve mentioned for a while that Rachel can be very, let’s say, judicious, with her plot reveals? Some of the commenters have been complaining that it can take quite a long time for anything to happen in the Lore Olympus comic. Hopefully everyone’s happier now, because a lot happened in the most... The post Binary System Podcast #406 –…

On this week’s Night Vale recap, Carlos and Cecil hold an exclusive Art Show (ie: a family dinner so they can show off Estaban’s drawing on the fridge) and we get some of our favorite horror tropes: unreliable narrators, creepy jumps in time, and pictures that change when you’re not looking at them. Or do... The post Binary System Podcast #405 – WT…

The first half of Lore Olympus episode 270 is light on dialog. Baby Dionysus starts the most adorable Hero’s Journey ever as he sets off to rescue Hades and Persephone. The cuteness balances out the second half of the episode, with images of Hades dealing with his worst nightmare: being a child at the mercy... The post Binary System Podcast #404 – …

On the latest episode of Welcome to Night Vale, Kevin the Younger is determined to kill Kevin the Older, so he’s used Carlos’ lab to open a portal to the Desert Otherworld. Cecil wants to tell the story, Tamika wants to stop the bloodshed, and Carlos wants everyone to PLEASE be careful of the beakers... The post Binary System Podcast #403 – WTNV #2…

There’s a great big ceremony that happens every year, you may have heard of it? The Oscars? Anyway, the Binary System Podcast didn’t watch it, but they do have lots of opinions about the winners. (And some of the ones that didn’t win. You guys, have you seen Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse?) And of course... The post Binary System Podcast #402 …

On this week’s Night Vale episode, we highly approve of Cecil devoting an entire broadcast to Lost and Found submissions, because writer Brie Williams is very good with lists of random weirdness, unexpected sweetness, and things with TEETH. From there we jump into three more Oscar nominated films we finally watched, namely Oppenheimer (brilliant bu…

Happy 400th episode! Time flies, right? About ten years ago we started recording our Night Vale discussions because we’re giant nerds and nerds gotta podcast. But here’s the thing: we started with the Night Vale episode that’d just been released, “Renovations,” number 48 in the series. We’ve discussed every episode since then, but not once... The p…

On the latest episode of Night Vale the Librarians broke out of their cages but some heroes saved the day andnoweverythingisfineTheEnd SO! HOW ABOUT THOSE OSCAR ANIMATED SHORTS? (Kidding, it was a fun episode of Night Vale, we’re just really excited to talk about cartoons.) Anyway, massive spoiler warnings as we discuss our favorite Oscar-nominated…

In the latest Lore Olympus episodes we’ve read, Demeter revealed a little more about Persephone’s history as a Fertility Goddess (namely, that she definitely is one, and that someone else in Demeter’s generation used to be, not sure who). That was episode 264, and the theme of 265 can be summed up even more briefly:... The post Binary System Podcas…

When we last heard from Night Vale in December, Cecil was being held hostage by a strange boy with a large knife, and this week’s episode picks up right where we left off. It’s another Brie Williams story so you know there’s going to be delightful lists of really weird things. Knives! Trapper Keepers! Field... The post Binary System Podcast #397 – …

Episodes 262 and 263 feature a Persephone who’s dealing with the uncomfortable reality that the Mortal Realm is dying and it may possibly be all her fault. But for the Binary System Podcast team, that calamity pales in comparison to the fact that Apollo is being a gigantic jerk and it’s stressing us out. The... The post Binary System Podcast #396 –…

You’re not going to believe this, but we said we were going to watch the third David Tennant Doctor Who episode this week AND WE DID. Next thing you know we’ll be watching movies the weekend they come out. (Hahahah, kidding, obviously.) Anyway, our hearts are still intact after the episode, which was for the...

It’s an extra-long episode this week, although not because of Lore Olympus. The recap for episodes 259 and 260 went pretty quickly, with a little more of Demeter’s backstory revealed and one hell of a lot of personal growth. Seriously, we figured Rachel included the bit with Demeter snapping at Hera because otherwise we wouldn’t... The post Binary …

“Fenslaw.Coliss.Brate.Gilvane.Stond.” The latest episode of Night Vale before they went on hiatus (they’re always on hiatus in January and we will never remember that) was delightfully creepy in a way we didn’t see coming at all, what a fantastic surprise. We can’t say more, because spoilers. (This episode of VagueCast is brought to you by... The p…

Happy New Year everyone! We hope all our listeners’ holidays were fantastic, and that the return to work wasn’t too much of a shock to the system.

Happy last-podcast-of-2023! Recorded on location in the wilds of Western Florida (aka our parents’ house) we start out this episode with a quick breakdown of Christmas, including successful hospital trips (spoilers: we were NOT stealing babies) and geeky presents, but it all goes by really fast because we’ve gotta talk about “Skibidi Toilet.” Serio…

Happy last-podcast-before-Christmas! On this week’s Lore Olympus recap we were absolutely gobsmacked that a certain someone gave Apollo a verbal smack upside the head because it was the LAST person we expected. Merry Christmas to us!

This week’s Night Vale episode is a perfect example of distilled weirdness, full of deadly nature walks, supermarket bonfires, and would you PLEASE stop PETTING THE WOLFMEN. GEORGE.

Okay, not gonna lie, the latest two episodes of Lore Olympus that the Binary System Podcast team recaps are causing quite a lot of anxiety.

The second season of Loki had its highs (that fourth episode good googaly moogaly) and lows (the bonkers pacing, that weird hot chocolate scene) and for a while there we were worried the series might go out with a thud instead of a bang.

Fall is well and truly here, and all we want to do is curl up with a scary movie or TV show, which is why we were delighted to get an episode like Loki season two, episode four.
