We're off the edge of the map. Here there be monsters.


If you've ever wanted to be more cultured, but you're pressed for time, then you've come to the right place. Join co-hosts Sydney Painter and Anthony Pinggera, two queer millennials with ADHD, as they review all the books, movies, and musicians that you've been meaning to get to but haven't made time for yet. And until now, neither have they! Let's all become more sophisticated together, shall we?

About the Hosts

Sydney PainterProfile Photo

Sydney Painter

Sydney (she/they) is a co-host of the podcast and a screenwriter who prefers television to movies. She knows that even (or especially) "silly" things like pop music and reality television have cultural value, and that we're depriving ourselves of fun by pretending that they don't. Also, even "serious art" is pretty silly.

She's also the one who...well, okay, here's the thing: she trails off and restarts sentences a lot. She is canonically not sorry about it.

Anthony Pinggera

Anthony (they/he) is a co-host of the podcast, a recovering film bro, and an unapologetic, massive dork. You can count on them for wild analogies, weird trivia, and a laugh that sounds like a donkey falling down a hill.

They're the one who (usually) manages the Envelope of Chaos, the Lovecraftian text from which most of the ideas for episodes spring. They're also the one who edits the episodes, so if something sounds odd in an episode, it's probably their fault.
