About this Episode

IFC's parody series Documentary Now! is back for its third season with six new spoofs of noteworthy docs, starting with Wild Wild Country (here reimagined as Batsh*t Valley). Is it still as note-perfect as its first two seasons have been? Molly Lambert makes her Extra Hot Great début to join us and discuss! Around The Dial clicks through Adam McKay's new Amazon infotainment series This Giant Beast That Is The Global Economy, Naked & Afraid, Sneaky Pete, and Miracle Workers. Erica presents the Series 6 finale of The Great British Bake Off for induction into the Canon, and then after identifying the week's Winner and Loser -- identifying rather closely, in the former case -- we face off in a Game Time that has some harsh words for all of us. Put on your black and yellow finery and listen in!

Show Notes

Support EHG on Patreon

The EHG gang have been recording this podcast for almost a decade now. In podcasting terms, that makes us positivity Methuselahian. Since the start of EHG, our listeners have asked if we had a tip jar or donation system and we'd look at each other and say surely that is a joke, people don't pay other people to do podcasts. We'd email them back "Ha ha ha, good one, Chet" and go about our business.

Now we are told this is a real thing that real nice people do. Value for value? In today's topsy turvy world? It's madness but that good kind of madness, like when you wake up a 3:15am and clean your house. Or something.

In all seriousness, we are humbled by your continued prodding to get a Patreon page up for EHG and here it is!
