Around The Dial clicks through American Princess, The Handmaid's Tale, Netflix's sequel to Tales Of The City, Scott & Bailey, Good Omens, and Epix's Perpetual Grace, LTD. Alan takes a leap by submitting the Quantum Leap episode "The Leap Home, Part 1" to the Canon. Then after we name the week's Winner and Loser, it's on to a very animated Game Time.

SUPPORT EHG ON PATREON
The EHG gang have been recording this podcast for almost a decade now. In podcasting terms, that makes us positively Methuselahian. Since the start of EHG, our listeners have asked if we had a tip jar or donation system and we'd look at each other and say surely that is a joke, people don't pay other people to do podcasts. We'd email them back "Ha ha ha, good one, Chet" and go about our business. Now we are told this is a real thing that real nice people do. Value for value? In today's topsy turvy world? It's madness but that good kind of madness, like when you wake up a 3:15am and clean your house. Or something. In all seriousness, we are humbled by your continued prodding to get a Patreon page up for EHG and here it is! Extra Hot Great on Patreon
