Episode 96: Always Thumbs Up!

Happy Friday!

In minute 96, Charlie wins! Charlie finds out, as do we, that Mr. Slugworth isn’t Mr. Slugworth. Wonka explains that Charlie has won, and that he had to test him. He also introduces Charlie and Grandpa Joe to the concept of the Great Glass Wonkavator. In discussing the minute, we talk about the concept of redemption. David is very excited about a lot of stuff in this scene…almost to the point of speechlessness…on a podcast.

To end the episode, David tries his luck again at the Golden Ticket lottery scratch off.

Episode 95: Nerds For ELM

Welcome to the middle of the week!

In minute 95, Grandpa Joe continues to rail against all that he thinks is unfair, but Wonka won’t budge. Joe plots his revenge, but Charlie is having none of it, because Charlie is actually a good and decent human being. He provides a light in the darkness that is the world. David thinks that Grandpa Joe is projecting his own feelings about himself onto Wonka. We talk about revenge, and varying ways to think of revenge. We talk about Charlie’s good deed, and the Shakespearean quote that it inspires Willy Wonka to paraphrase. David even gets a little personal talking about his faith.

Also, please tweet at Dairy Queen’s official account, and tell them how much you want a Nerds Blizzard!

Thanks for listening, and we’ll see you back here on Friday!
