Hey, it’s our first episode with a GUEST HOST because Chris is shooting a film, so Dom is joined by filmmaker/musical enthusiast/pop-proto-culture expert H.P. Mendoza to discuss the most elevating musical/song moments in geekdom, including banter about THE ABYSS, HUNGER GAMES, ROBOTECH, TRANSFORMERS:THE MOVIE, SCOTT PILGRIM, STAR TREK:BEYOND, and somehow manage to go the whole hour without mentioning Joss Whedon once. (WTF?)
