Episode 21: Big Napkin Shills

WRL has sold out this week with their new uber sponsors. Will we ever forgive them?

This week the crew tackle such subjects as: Where was Team Rocket? Will Warner Bros sue? And why is Annika Smethurst? All that plus giant waffles, Tattoos in Japan and Wet&Wild World people.

P.s. we bumped the microphone a fair bit because we’re unprofessional as h*ck so if that will annoy you, you might wanna skip this one!

Annika and the team are live from Tokyo as they talk about what it's like to live in a new country, and discuss the entertainment they've absorbed while there. Will the Emperor ban this podcast? Are "THE RICH" evil? Why is there so many salespeople ringing their doorbell at ungodly hours of the morning?? All that plus cracking the plot, Darude sandstorm and even more Potter fanfic.

Episode 19: We now return to your irregularly scheduled programming!

The crew of two are back for the first episode of 2019 as they WRLcap what media they've consumed in the last 3 months . What makes Netflix series fall apart? Do Australians swear too much? Can you befriend the racist aliens? All that plus trashy Young Adult tropes and more fart talk. See you all for episode 20, coming... soon?

What we WRL’d (mini-WRL’d?) this podcast:

Episode 18: Didn't Watch, Didn't Read, Didn't Listen (Game). The Holiday Special!

It's holiday time at the WRL studio, and Annika and Luci break from the usual podcast for the first episode of DWDRDL! Is this episode a low-key mess? How does Captain America spend his time on the internet in 2018? Does Annika understand what her own topic is? All that plus Fan Fiction updates, Salty Thicc Snacc, and introducing the new Avengers: John Worthington, Amy Shark, Flame Guy, Rockman and Groot.


The Marvel Cinematic Universe

Instagram Slang

DC Comics

Drake: In My Feelings & The Kiki Challenge


Purple hair girl and Co-Host are back with another fortnight of media recommendations. Who is the villain of the WRL podcast? What was drawn on the teachers cars? Why is Batman now a Ninja? All that plus lactose updates, Harry Potter shipping, a nuanced discussion on the sensibilities of different cultures, and giant mechs made from swarms of monkeys.
