We look at Battle of the Planets this week.  Spandex clad orphan teenagers from the 70s, brought to you by from Sandy Frank.   What's not to love.  But in this episode, Deanna Toxopeus, Gary Mitchel and  David Farnell look at more than the surface story, they dive into the cultural impact of this cartoon.  They even dive into the hidden secrets of the Fiery Phoenix, inlcuing Mark killing people and Zoltar being a hermafrodite with mutiple personalities and two brains.  And Deanna remembers a childhood friend with the coolest mom ever. 

When we add in the nerd news and week in nerdliness, it's no wonder this episode is a supersizer.

Our theme music this episode is "Cultists On Board" by Darkest of the Hillside Thickets, courtesy of Divine Industries.
