82: Cast 29 - Kiva 27-28
Mar 22 • 46 min
Every time our hosts think they've hit the bottom, Kiva keeps digging deeper. Join us for a short episode that somehow still involves a break for existential dread!
81: Gem 01 - Mashin Sentai Kiramager 01
Mar 15 • 62 min
This week, Evan's body literally rebelled against the thought of more Kiva, so a replacement topic had to be found, and wouldn't you know it, the new season of Super Sentai has just kicked off. Join Garrett and Chris on a journey into Sailor Moon, moody…
80: Mask 4 - Tokusatsu GaGaGa 4
Mar 8 • 63 min
This time around, two hosts return to loving parody Tokusatsu GaGaGa and ask themselves the question: "what do you mean we can stay on-topic during a comedy show?"
79: Cast 028 - Kiva 25-26
Mar 1 • 65 min
It's the Sonic the Hedgehog spectacular, dear reader. Also: More Kiva questions you can't answer, including how hyuuuu-maaaan emotions work. Show Notes Wizard People, Dear Reader What is Love
78: Shard 34 - Zi-O 47/48
Feb 23 • 89 min
On this, the pentultimate episode of Zi-O coverage, technical difficulties arise one more time to crush the flow of discussion. Don't worry, we fixed it ten minutes later.
77: Shard 33 - Zi-O 45/46
Feb 15 • 64 min
If these episodes had titles, "Flexing His Decade Dick" would be this week's. Honestly this is a pretty fun one overall.
76: Cast 027 - Kiva 23-24
Feb 10 • 69 min
This week, Zi-o's time travel shenanigans end up affecting an episode on Kiva as one of your hosts comes unstuck in time just before the show finds new ways to hit them in the heart.
75: Splinter 009 - The Man Behind Kiva
Feb 2 • 9 min
This week, in lieu of our hosts pushing on with a show they can't stand, we get into some of the production history and career of Toshiki Inoue, the showrunner of Kamen Rider Kiva (and a writer/lead writer on multiple other things you've probably…
74: Cast 026 - Kiva 21-22
Jan 26 • 58 min
A new tighter format leads to… no, nobody's having a good time this week on Kiva. But we're creeping closer to that halfway point! Maybe there's a midseason turn to save it? The editor has seen the show and knows, and cackles.
73: Shard 32 - Zi-O 43/44
Jan 19 • 72 min
Our hosts rediscover joy and begin theorycrafting about what the end of a series that wrapped half a year ago can hold. Spoilers: they're kinda guessing wildly with a shotgun's success rate.
72: Cast 025 - Kiva 19-20
Jan 12 • 83 min
This week is a breakthrough for all three hosts as their feelings on Kiva crystallize. Hint: by the end of the episode, they're all feeling the urge to double up on Kiva with next week's show!
71: Shard 31 - Zi-O 41/42
Jan 5 • 68 min
It all ends here! Or starts ending here, anyway, as our hosts enter the final arc of the series and a new year all in one fell swoop.
70: Shard 30 - Zi-O 39/40
Dec 29, 2019 • 75 min
Guys, gals, and non-binary pals, allow me to introduce the nightmare form to end all nightmare forms: they've finally hit Grand Zi-O. Also Den-O came along for the ride.
69: A Very Santa Claus Christmas
Dec 24, 2019 • 5 min
Showa-era Kamen Rider has some real issues with the jolly old man, and because this is a Fletch-helmed episode, we are required by law to remind you that Tim Allen is a coke-dealing snitch.
68: Cast 024 - Kiva 17-18
Dec 15, 2019 • 84 min
This week, back to full strength, our hosts return to the world of Kiva, where they're more positive than usual. Which isn't saying much when the episode involves phrases like "these characters are too good for Kamen Rider Kiva". BUTTON
67: Shard 29 - Zi-O 37/38
Dec 7, 2019 • 80 min
The dread Kamen Rider Koyō has kidnapped Garrett, leaving the remaining hosts to venture into the world of Kamen Rider Kabuto without any protection save that of invoking Gackt.
66: Cast 023 - Kiva 15-16
Nov 30, 2019 • 78 min
Nobody: Literally nobody: Kiva: WHOOOOOO WANTS AMNEEEEEEEESIAAAAAAAAAAA (and dubious little play)?!
65: Splinter 008 - Ultraman Primer
Nov 23, 2019 • 11 min
This week, Editor Fletcher takes advantage of the fact that despite all odds, this show is technically biweekly to cover the recent news that 2020 is gonna be the year they push Ultraman hard in the west, and give a quick breakdown of how to get in on…
64: Cast 022 - Kiva 13-14
Nov 18, 2019 • 88 min
This time around, our hosts decide slow and steady wins the race and pace back to two episodes no matter which series (for now…), and what luck! They come out of this arc pretty positive on the events even if the plot strikes them as incredibly…
63: Shard 28 - Zi-O 35/36
Nov 10, 2019 • 86 min
The show begins to eat itself as our hosts visit Zi-o visiting Kiva which they're in the middle of due to Decade running into Kiva which is wild because Decade is in Zi-o and oh dear lord I've gone cross-eyed.
62: Shard 27 - Zi-O 33/34
Nov 2, 2019 • 65 min
Down one host, our cast stumble blindly into a land of oni, parties, and diapers - we're one radish pun away from DBZ this week in Zi-O town!

On a slightly briefer journey into darkness than usual, we cover the tragic tale of the luthier (yes that's a real word!) Ōmura, a Fangire with feelings. Watch our hosts begin to turn around on this show!
58: Shard 25 - Zi-O 29/30
Oct 5, 2019 • 74 min
Our hosts shake off the rust and return to the world of Kamen Rider Blade… which neither of them have seen all of, meaning the major themes of this arc leave them lost until an antagonist spells it out near the end. Plus: so many blades!
57: Shard 24 - Zi-O 27/28
Sep 28, 2019 • 66 min
For the final(?) summer vacation episode, Chris and Editor Fletch pick back up where we left off in Zi-O (hint: baby murder and everyone thinking major cast are dead), and for those who think the podcast needs more tangents, good news! There's an entire…
56: Splinter 007 - English Tokusatsu
Sep 21, 2019 • 7 min

54: Cast 019 - Kiva 05-08
Sep 7, 2019 • 119 min
Sometimes ignorance is bliss, and that's how the boys feel as they dig deeper into this gothic Rider's series, learning terrible facts from wikis and discovering maybe the series isn't about friends, you guys. It's about whether or not that stew was made…
53: Shard 23 - Zi-O 25/26
Aug 31, 2019 • 86 min
It's the middle of the show, and so it's time for the obvious: ANOTHER ZI-O. But wait, there's more: will one of our heroes commit Baby Murder? All this and more during this arclet.
52: Cast 018 - Kiva 03-04
Aug 24, 2019 • 95 min
The boys push onwards, and begin wondering what to do about a series like Kiva… Or a series like Zero-One. Or Zi-O. Or… Look, there's a lot on the table by the end of this episode.
51: Cast 017 - Kiva 01-02
Aug 17, 2019 • 111 min
Our hosts begin their journey into the gothic times and space of Kamen Rider Kiva, and remember all too late "Oh, right, whenever we switch series like this there's a lot of tangents." (Editor's Note: I'm in the middle of a move this week, and as a result…
50: Splinter 05: Android Kikaider
Aug 10, 2019 • 17 min
Were you one of the tens of people upset by two hosts who knew nothing about a tokusatsu classic covering the arc that was a giant love letter to it? The show's editor was, which is why you're getting a crash course on Android Kikaider while the crew get…
