About this Episode

Merry Christmas! We're off for the holidays so we've released two of our Patreon episodes from Extra Extra Hot Great!

EEHG 014: We're hopping in our time machines to imagine what an EHG main episode might look like...in 1999. It's all sequels and prequels in scripted content these days and hey, we're no different, so: What's the main topic on the podcast in a 1999 episode? What is everyone talking about for Around The Dial? What would we put up for the Canon, and who's Winning and Losing? And how the hell are we going to watch that new episode of Twin Peaks when our VCR crapped out and Netflix is decades away?

EEHG 030: Previously, we imagined what an EHG would have looked like in 1999. Today, we're going back even further — to 1969. It was a big year in the news, and we're probably all well sick of retrospectives on Manson and the moon landing...but what was going on in TV-land in these fractured United States? We'll each propose main topics for a 1969 podcast; our Around The Dial, Canon, and Winner/Loser candidates; and possible celebrity guests.

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
