About this Episode

The But Why Tho? podcast's Kate Sánchez is here to help the panel figure out why Killer Camp -- the CW's horror-trope competitive-reality show -- and others like it don't quite work. Is it because horror-movie tropes and American-summer-camp tropes clash (especially as embodied by a bunch of British nationals)? Is it that an organic timeline for solving the mystery isn't possible on a network show? Is it the annoying host? We gathered around our own figurative campfire to go Around The Dial with P-Valley, The Dog House UK, Cursed, Junior Bake Off, Doom Patrol, and Harley Quinn before Kate schooled us on anime and TV's most melodramatic guitar string in her Given Canon submission. Crime documentaries won, hockey commentary lost, and we went through the ringer with character's who've done the same in a season-defining Game Time. Finish up those lanyards and join us for an all-new Extra Hot Great.

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 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 at 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
