Well You Can Sell Your Soul, But Don't You Sell It Too Cheap
Well You Can Sell Your Soul, But Don't You Sell It Too Cheap
'The Winchesters' returned with a bang this week! Brianna, Jules, and Kenedi deal with higher levels of clownery than usual as they discuss every big reveal, romantic development, and music cue in "Hang On To Your Life." Sidebars include the Samuel/Millie crack ship we all fear, our tears at Carlos' found family speech, Elton John, and the irony of John Winchester having a fantastic grasp on parenting.  If you have questions or thoughts that you want us to discuss on the show, feel free to send us an email (spnontheroadagain@gmail.com) or find us on Twitter and Instagram (@SPNOnTheRoadPod).

BONUS: Our Midseason Discussion with Special Guests Mal, Megan, and Briar!
BONUS: Our Midseason Discussion with Special Guests Mal, Megan, and Briar!
It's a hell-atus miracle! Brianna, Jules, and Kenedi are joined by special guests (and fellow Nerds writers) Mal, Megan, and Briar to discuss their thoughts on the season so far. From our favorite moments to our most outlandish theories, there's a lot to discuss as we prepare for the midseason premiere of 'The Winchesters' on January 24. Sidebars include how 'Supernatural' trained us to expect plot twists in innocuous situations, the downright depressing music choices, and how Jensen Ackles has probably already told us how the season will end.  You can find our guests on Twitter at @MalMuses, @Marvels911s, and @thebriarroseee. All of their great coverage is up on NerdsAndBeyond.com!  If you have questions or thoughts that you want us to discuss on the show, feel free to send us an email (spnontheroadagain@gmail.com) or find us on Twitter and Instagram (@SPNOnTheRoadPod).

Trapped In A World That's A Distorted Reality
Trapped In A World That's A Distorted Reality
In this week's episode, Jules descends into her own multiverse of madness as Kenedi and Brianna try their best to pull her out. Brianna cracks the season wide open with her fantastic new theory, and we all lament the upcoming hell-atus. Sidebars include how fast you should run to greet the ghost of your missing husband, our love of romantic CW moments, and John's epic fail of a Captain America move.  If you have questions or thoughts that you want us to discuss on the show, feel free to send us an email (spnontheroadagain@gmail.com) or find us on Twitter and Instagram (@SPNOnTheRoadPod).

Searching for the Truth Among the Lying
Searching for the Truth Among the Lying
In “Art of Dying,” we finally see Carlos off of his flirting game while Mary is reminded how difficult it is to leave hunting. John once again struggles to keep his anger in check while Lata finds her inner peace (and gets the chance to save the day!). Sidebars include our residual barn trauma from ‘Supernatural,’ jump scares, our shock at Zen!John Winchester, and how fighting bi panic may actually be a tougher battle than fighting monsters.  If you have questions or thoughts that you want us to discuss on the show, feel free to send us an email (spnontheroadagain@gmail.com) or find us on Twitter and Instagram (@SPNOnTheRoadPod).

And I Don't Care If You Don't Want Me, I'm Yours Right Now
In this week's episode, we discuss "Legend of a Mind," the latest episode of 'The Winchesters'! From creepy bugs to romantic miscommunications, there's a lot of ground to cover as the Core Four confront a monster that has a surprising connection to Ada. Sidebars include daddy issues (AGAIN), lessons in mechanics,  the unfairness of CW guest contracts causing romantic havoc for shippers, and 'Sky High' (shoutout to all the Zillennials out there).  If you have questions or thoughts that you want us to discuss on the show, feel free to send us an email (spnontheroadagain@gmail.com) or find us on Twitter and Instagram (@SPNOnTheRoadPod).

You Play With My World Like It's Your Little Toy
This week, a Winchester finally goes to therapy as we get closer and closer to the John we know from ‘Supernatural.’ We dive into “Masters of War” and the way PTSD has impacted our Core Four. Digressions include Millie’s questionable parenting, our Kyle suspicions, and our strong thoughts on Carlos and Lata’s romantic lives (hello sailor, indeed).

We Don't Talk About Monster Club
We Don't Talk About Monster Club
The first rule of monster club is that you don't talk about monster club...but we will! This week our unhinged theories reach a new level as we break down "You're Lost Little Girl." From big romantic declarations to secrets from the most unlikely Core Four member, there's a lot to unpack. Sidebars include retconning the Antichrist, the Dean-ification of Mary Campbell, and our newest segment calling out those true Winchester Stupid moments!

Their Father's Hell Did Slowly Go By
Their Father's Hell Did Slowly Go By
Ah, 'Supernatural': the universe where even the monsters have daddy issues. In this week's episode, we break down "Teach Your Children Well" and the narrative parallels linking John and Mary with their future selves (and their children). Along the way, we discuss groovy clothing choices, Carlos' musical moment, and who's under that mysterious black hood!  If you have questions or thoughts that you want us to discuss on the show, feel free to send us an email (spnontheroadagain@gmail.com) or find us on Twitter and Instagram (@SPNOnTheRoadPod).

I've Been Too Long, I'm Glad to be Back
I've Been Too Long, I'm Glad to be Back
After the longest hell-atus in 'Supernatural' history, we finally return to the world we know and love in 'The Winchesters'! In our discussion of the pilot episode, we dive into all the nods to the original, how it fits into existing canon, and our theories for how it will all play out (witches! angels! who knows!). Sidebars include Carlos in all his glory, John's hero complex and extremely undertreated PTSD, and just how bad we are at remembering how to kill monsters from 'Supernatural.'

Mama, We're All Full of Lies
Mama, We're All Full of Lies
Mother, hunter, and symbolic plot device: Mary Campbell has been through a lot in 15 seasons. This week, we unpack the many sides to Mary, from the fantasy maternal figure of the early seasons to the flawed woman we meet later. We'll also discuss how Mary (and John) are perceived by the fandom and why. In short, we have THOUGHTS!  If you have questions or thoughts that you want us to discuss on the show, feel free to send us an email (spnontheroadagain@gmail.com) or find us on Twitter and Instagram (@SPNOnTheRoadPod).
