Episode 125: Mother’s Little Helper (Once Upon a Time 6×16)

Season 6 Once Upon a Time

We dive back into the core mythology of Once Upon a Time: dark magic, Henry’s twisted family tree, Hook on an adventure that is going wrong at every turn, authors, saviors and the revelation that we’re on the last chapter of that Once Upon a Time book that started it all. We have so much fun theorizing and talking about what could be coming up in the next month, and wondering how all of those loose ends will be tied up. Could the entire series be wrapping up… or are we in for a dark curse to end all dark curses?

Episode 98: The Brothers Jones – Once Upon a Podcast

This week we met up with Hook’s brother Liam in the Underworld. Plus, Henry the Author is back in business because he found the pen! But what are the implications of his first job beyond being an angsty teenager about it? Plus, there were more Cruella and Charming shenanigans (count us in for the Cruella-comments-on-the-Charming-and-James-reunion episode) for our viewing pleasure. How do you feel Once Upon a Time is going so far this season? Are you still wondering whether Hades will step up his game and stop slacking off and letting the Heroes win?

  1. Anyone think there’s TOO MUCH tv in April?
  2. Our Top 5s (7:20)
  3. The Lighter Side and Listener Letters, plus a quick bit of news  (58:30)

See you again on Thursday when we’ll be talking about a few visitors who are due to set foot in the Underworld!

Help us get our happy ending: nominate Once Upon a Podcast for a Podcast Award!

It’s awards season! The Oscars, the Grammy’s, the Podcast Awards. All are looming on the not-so-distant horizon!

Brittany and I do this podcast as a true labor of love. We are proud to bring entertaining and meaningful discussions to your ears every Tuesday. We strive to provide open-minded conversation and reflect diverse points of view. Unlike most other OUAT podcasts, we don’t ask you for money or sponsorship, nor do we run ads in our show.

We don’t do it for money, fame or glory.

But, let’s be honest here. We are not above accepting fame and glory should it come our way.

Since neither one of us can sing all that well, we’re out of the running for a Grammy. And our odds for that Oscar for best original screenplay aren’t looking that great this year. So, our only remaining hope is a Podcast Award! Yeah, we can get one of those!

But to even make it into the running, we have a teeny tiny little favor to ask all of you lovely listeners. Would you please take a minute to nominate us for this award so we can travel to Las Vegas and triumphantly march on stage, cooling announcing “sorry I’m late” and accept our award?

So, how do you vote for us and help us get our happy ending? (Or at least some free champagne in Vegas?)

It’s easier than casting a curse, we promise.
