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 PostShowRecaps.com/SurvivorHawkins or watch on YouTube at https://youtu.be/ldvt7SUvKuA. 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
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.
