TFR Patreon Special: Not To Be Critical

Welcome! This episode was published in September, and it’s Patreon window has expired! Therefore we now break it out of the vault to share with the world!

Today we are discussing a trend in YouTube critics that needs to die. Namely, groupthink and its effect on how we consume pop culture. Yeah, this is some heavy stuff. BUT we feel it needs to said. We take on our divorce from the likes of Nostalgia Critic, and also uplift those critics that we think deserve some attention. So join us!

Because this was recorded when we only had two patrons, we also extend our thanks to Sean, Nathan, and Bridgett! Thanks!
