In This Episode!
Go, Go, Power ReNerders! In this episode, Matt and Chris wax poetically on the eternal mysteries that surround Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers. Chris poses the question as to why Rita Repulsa travels around in an airborne, old-timey bicycle, while Matt presents an argument that Bulk and Skull are the victims of bullying at the hands of none other than the Power Rangers themselves. They also gush over Rick and Morty, the mid-90sness of the Power Rangers film, and Matt’s experiences with Scientology.

Chris is on Twitter and Instagram — he also runs a blog about creativity, entrepreneurship, reading, writing, self-creation, secularism, spirituality, Stoicism, and whatever else interests him called Inter alia — but since it’s a Tumblr, he mainly just reblogs. Come say hi!
