    They were gonna spell it “No-Madge” but they thought it would make people assume they were talking about someone who refused to soak their nails in dish soap. And then they’d have to explain why that’s a thing because no one is going to get that reference.

    • Stephen says:

      I thought “no-Madge” referred to their lack of access to recordings by Madonna, who wouldn’t release any material for several more decades. Wizards, on the other hand, have time-scanning Bluetooth wands capable of streaming the hits of any era.

    Dickens loved teenage girls, so I wouldn’t be surprised if he transitioned into YA fantasy romance.

    I don’t know if Dan’s mic was mixed hot or if he was trying to compensate for his sore throat by speaking louder or being closer to the mic, but his comments seemed very loud. A great episode, but I was adjusting the volume frequently.

    i’m not done listening–in fact i’ve just started, but i’m already somewhat uncomfortable with the tenor of the criticism of the portrayal of newt because i know a lot of people on the Asperger’s spectrum who really identified with him and thought that the character was intentionally an “Aspie.”

    I’m still looking forward to Dan-gerous Liaisons…
