About this Episode

The fact-based cop drama We Own This City brings co-creator David Simon back to Baltimore and to HBO; it also brings Santiago Melli-Huber back to the podcast to discuss this take on Baltimore's Gun Trace Task Force scandal. Around The Dial takes us through even more true crime with WeCrashed, Captive Audience, and Gaslit, plus The Baby and RuPaul's Drag Race. Santiago pitches the WandaVision episode "Previously On" for induction into The Canon; then after naming the week's Winner and Loser, it's on to a Game Time that might make players a bit crabby. Strap on your Kevlar vest and join us!

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
