18. The Toys That Made Us: Star Trek
!WOOP! !WOOP! Trekkers only on this episode! Trekkies get lost! And Star Warsies can straight up fuhgeddaboutit (Gotti). This time we dissect an episode of Netflix's THE TOYS THAT MADE US that constantly reminds us it's not Star Wars. We're joined by resident Trek Expert (Trexpert) MATT TAYLOR who is also in Blake's band! Matt's not as much of a pathetic toi boi as we are so we gotta toysplain a lotta shit. Luckily he had plenty of childhood experience making grocery bag parachutes for GI Joes, which Blake didn't know was a thing. We talk about the episode and our experience with Star Trek--toys, shows, and movies--and do a bunch of goofs and horseshit too.
