About this Episode

Our (lack of?) enthusiasm for National Geographic's account of a late-'80s Ebola outbreak, The Hot Zone, is infectious -- and Kat Angus returns to the podcast to discuss the plague of wigs and clunky dialogue in the docuseries, plus exposition that made us itch and shows we'd rather watch instead. We went around the dial with Dynasty, What/If, Killing Eve, and Lonely Island's Bash Brothers special, and Tara hoped insurance would cover her Canon submission of a second-season GLOW episode. Chrissy Teigen won (as usual), Adam Levine lost, and a Game Time stuck in the middle of things. Gown up for an all-new Extra Hot (Zone) Great!

The EHG gang have been recording this podcast for almost a decade now. In podcasting terms, that makes us positively 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! Extra Hot Great on Patreon
