Psst. MangoRice Lives!

There’s been a whole lot of life going on for both Matt and myself involving a move across country, day job adventures, and PJ’s evolution into Piper J. Drake.

We’re picking up on the format proposed in Season 3, starting with a joint podcast episode and following up with solo episodes from PJ and Matt before coming back with another joint episode.

If you’ve been sticking with us through the years, thank you. We hope this season will be lots of fun. If you’re new to this podcast, hang on tight. The future is going to be sort of a timey-wimey, wibbly wobbly sort of thing.

Fun Follow ups from the Podcast:

  • The dinosaur from Jurassic World that was NOT a Megaladon was a Mosasaurus. Incidentally, the Mosasaurus is not actually a dinosaur and though PJ thought it looked like a precursor to a crocodile, scientists are still pondering what it’s related to. Here’s 9 facts about the Coolest Creature in Jurassic World (arguably)

OrD and PJ are back again.  MangoRice once again raises its head from the ashes and trembles towards standing on its gelding feet.  Will there be success??

PJ comes up with a twist on the style.  Short solo episodes directed either from PJ at OrD, or vice-versa to fill the gaps between the monthly(-ish) full episodes.
