Josh Wigler (@roundhoward) and Mike Bloom (@AMikeBloomType) promised a feedback show all season long, and now, it's here ? and it is the single longest podcast in Post Show Recaps history. At first, it's all feedback, all the time. Then, at roughly 1:20:00, the podcast becomes something very different: SURVIVOR HAWKINS, a three hour Survivor simulation that somehow does not feature a single Gary Hawkins reference. Follow along with the simulation at or watch on YouTube at Josh and Mike will return with more Stranger Things "adjacent" shows soon, followed by the launch of a brand new podcast later in August. Make sure you subscribe; you don't want to be "lost" when their next series starts. (Get it? C'moooon, you get it.) Full Stranger Things coverage: * 6/27 - Preview Show * 7/4 - Episode 1 Recap * 7/5 - Episode 2 Recap * 7/8 - Episode 3 Recap * 7/10 - Episode 4 Recap * 7/12 - Episode 5 Recap * 7/15 - Episode 6 Recap * 7/17 - Episode 7 Recap * 7/19 - Episode 8 Recap * 7/24 - Feedback Show + Survivor: Hawkins * 7/31 - David Harbour in Frankenstein's Monster's Monster, Frankenstein

Past Episodes

Josh Wigler (@roundhoward) and Emily Fox (@emelette) break down Succession season two, episode two, "Vaulter." They podcast not because their dads told them to, but because they genuinely want to do it for reasons they cannot explain ? like a kid taking candy from a candy store, or a grown adult stealing a pack of batteries from a bodega for no reason other than... well, he can?

In "Vaulter," the HBO drama continues dragging Kendall Roy into darkness, as his father Logan forces him to shutter a beloved project. Kendall surprises both his father and the audience alike with the ruthlessness in which he executes the command, proving once again that there's nothing he isn't willing to do on behalf of dear old dad. It's a bleak display of power, one that even the wicked Roman Roy couldn't quite enact, his best efforts to impress his dad notwithstanding. Meanwhile, Shiv Roy decides to go all in on the plan to succeed her father, dropping out of Gil Eavis' presidential campaign in big, barn-burning fashion. Bonus: Cousin Greg identifies his moral code and gets a brand new apartment.

Josh and Emily break down the events of the episode and field feedback from listeners. Their next podcast will recap season two, episode three, "Hunting." Send in questions and comments for that show by reaching out on Twitter @PostShowRecaps.

LOST is over, but we have to go back! 

Introducing LOST: Down the Hatch, a new podcast series on Post Show Recaps. Josh Wigler (@roundhoward) and Mike Bloom (@AMikeBloomType) are your hosts, guiding you on a walkabout through every single episode of LOST, from the beginning through "The End." 

A new weekly series, Down the Hatch aims to infuse your life with weekly LOST love and laughter. Note that this is a rewatch podcast, which means yes, spoilers are ahead. If you have not watched LOST yet, you are advised to tread lightly before proceeding with this podcast.

In their first episode, Josh and Mike introduce you to the format of Down the Hatch, which takes its Carlton cues from the numbers at the heart of the series. Each podcast will include: 

* 4 Stories, focusing on specific plot points and thematic takeaways from a given episode

* 8 Sounds, replaying eight different moments from each episode for your listening pleasure

* 15/16 Others, our section for feedback and fun facts, as led by The Man Behind the Curtain, Ben Martell (@Golden8284)

* 23 Points, an overly complicated weekly scoring system designed to establish the best and worst LOST characters

* 42 Minutes, the guaranteed minimum amount of LOST content you will get in any given podcast.

* 108 Minutes, the maximum amount of LOST content you will get in any given podcast ? and if that maximum is exceeded, a crisis will occur!

Josh and Mike will record their recap of the two-part pilot on 8/21/2019, posting on 8/23. Send feedback to LOST: Down the Hatch on Twitter to @PostShowRecaps, @roundhoward, @AMikeBloomType and @Golden8284. You can also contact us on e-mail at

Josh Wigler (@roundhoward) and Emily Fox (@emelette) sweep the chimneys and break down the events of "The Summer Palace," the eventful season two premiere episode of HBO's Succession. Set a scant 48 hours after the first season finale, Succession season two sees Kendall Roy still reeling from his involvement in a fatal car accident, Logan Roy scrambling to battle back against a "bear hug," and the appointment of a new successor in Shiv Roy ? in theory, at least. Josh and Emily tackle all of these plot points and much more in their first recap, and they invite you to send in your feedback for future episodes of the podcast. Do so by sending questions and comments on Twitter @PostShowRecaps.

Josh Wigler (@roundhoward) and Mike Bloom (@AMikeBloomType) close out their Stranger Things 3 sessions in the strangest way they know how ? aside from the Survivor simulation, at least. 

In this podcast, Josh and Mike take a cue from the party's Dungeons & Dragons habit by playing in a role-playing game of their own. Special guest host and legendary Post Show Recaps community fixture R Filly (@Wharfrat1625) leads Josh and Mike on an adventure through Hawkins in a game inspired by Tales From the Loop.  

What mysteries will befall Josh and Mike's characters, the Kline brothers? Who is Number Four, and what does it have to do with the new podcast Josh and Mike have been teasing for the past few weeks? Get ready to take on those questions and more, plus the arrival of instant classic Droopy Drawers into your podcast feeds, with this final run at Stranger Things 3. Plus, Josh and Mike will tell you all about their new podcast series, which begins on 8/15.

Josh Wigler (@roundhoward) and AJ Mass (@AJMass) trip down the rabbit hole to discuss "Dark," Netflix's German language drama all about a small town with big problems in the form of lost children, lost time, and mysterious caves, among other forms of literal and existential dread. Described by some as a successor to "Lost" and "Twin Peaks," Josh and AJ start their discussion of "Dark" in spoiler-free terms, before going deep into the caves with full spoiler detail for seasons one and two. Spoiler discussion begins around the 20 minute mark. Josh and AJ will return to discuss the third and final season when it's announced, and will return even sooner if feedback warrants an additional podcast. Tweet their way (and also @PostShowRecaps) with all your questions and comments about "Dark."
