503. Treading Through Merukimon Waters

More ways to listen: Web • YouTube • SoundCloud • Overcast Like they always say, actions speak louder than birds— it's fightin' time again! Kristy gets and loses a bird, Marcus rises, we meet Keenan, Thomas manpains, Keenan's bird helps out, Yoshi rearranges her flower into a different flower, and then Merukimon sends everyone home. In this episode, we discuss at this season's unique pacing, Jeff looks at Data Squad's compelling use of Digimon death mechanics, Ashley talks about walls, and we debut a new segment!
