On Becoming A God In Central Florida premiered on Showtime recently, and Floridian Jeb Lund returned to the podcast to discuss its geographic and period accuracy, whether it celebrates or mocks the poor, and all the process-y parts of a pyramid scheme (fine: "multi-level marketing"). We went Around The Dial with 13 Reasons Why, Why Women Kill and Pennyworth, and then we contemplated converting primetime shows into Saturday-morning cartoons, '70s-style, in an Extra Credit from Dave Snyder. After a hilarious (if fatal to felines) Canon submission on Garth Marenghi's Darkplace, we declared Netflix a winner, ABC a loser, and Dan Cassino an evil genius as we played a Hallmark Of Quality Game Time. Stock up on giant cans of nacho cheese before you listen to an all-new Extra Hot Great.

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
