Nerves fell overboard this week, so Jitterbug searched the deep, deep bowels of the ship to dig up a couple golden nuggets, and just so happened to resurrect the long dead Big Red Barrel Flix Podcast in the process! Dave, Yoshi, and Jitterbug discuss Rogue One, and rank it in the pantheon of Star Wars films.

Jitterbug and Nerves are back again for another bout of idiocy. This week they talk about the movie, The Witch, as well as Gears 4, The Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, and anything else that crosses our minds. Also, there's a special segment in this show all about The Black Dahlia murder that I'll be interested to hear what people think of.
