Episode 70: Mother

OUAT episode 70 Cora and Regina MillsLike mother, like daughter, right? Well, maybe not. Thanks to this week’s Once Upon a Time we explore the themes of motherhood. First, another Queen of Darkness got her happy ending when Maleficent and Lily reunited. Snow and Emma mended ways (although the timing of this worries us.) And of course, the always-spectacular Cora returns in a flashback to show us more of her tenuous relationship with Regina, once again pushing Regina into her self-destructive habits. Then there’s Zelena, the Author and a barbecued date in the dungeon: so much in this episode, so let’s get started!

  1. Welcome to episode 70
  2. Top 5s
  3. The lighter side & listener letters
  4. News
  5. Only one more “Twice Upon a Podcast” left (join us Thursday) and then it’s FINALE time on Sunday.

Thanks for listening and brace yourselves for that finale!

Episode 56: Season 4A Wrap-up

Once Upon a Podcast OUATIn our first of five hiatus podcast episodes, we review the good, bad… and awkward of season 4A. From the Frozen story to the Rumbelle bombshell (how did such a huge story last all of 2 minutes), we talked about this Once Upon a Time season’s main highs and lows. We also speculate a bit about what is to come (following tons of new news items), and chat a lot about our holidays and other things we’re watching and paying attention to over this winter season. Come on down and survive the hiatus along with us!

Today – September 2nd – marks our 1 year anniversary of podcasting! Thank you all so much for joining us this past year. After all, it’s much more exciting to podcast when we know we have an audience. (An amazing audience at that – you have sent us so many great messages and ideas!) We’ve had a fantastic time this past year, especially since we had no idea what to expect when we started. It’s safe to say everything surpassed our expectations.

Thanks for your support!

We’ll see you in two weeks, and after that we’ll be back to podcasting every week until this winter hiatus!
