13: The worst 2.0
RCWAF is BACK! Hopefully you'll be hearing from us more regularly but also we're pretty bad with regularity. This episode we focus on THE WORST (again) after we had so many requests for a follow up. We had so much fun last time we explored this topic, and really there are so many 'so bad they're good' movies and books out there that we will probably never run out of THE WORST episodes. We also delve into some pretty revealing questions and things unexpectedly get pretty real. Challenges on this episode of THE WORST 2.0: Nick Carter's film "Dead 7" and the children's video "Dream Bunny in Dream Land."  Next episode we are delving into the world of COMEDY and we hope you're ready.  Also please leave us a recorded message on our Anchor Site with some questions you'd like us to answer, something you think we've failed to address, or challenge us to some of your favourite or unfavourite shows/books/things. Or you can drop us a DM on our Instagram page @RCWAFpodcast .
