Posted at 2:36 PM, Oct 25, 2021

Steven Wahl is out this week, and you know what that means: it's time to return to Scooby-Doo 2: Monsters Unleashed! Chandler forced Steven to watch the live-action Scooby-Doo sequel back in June of 2020... and the debate that followed nearly tore the podcast apart. Steven would prefer that we never mention the film again, but when he's not here, Chandler makes the rules! Thus, Mal Hassell joins the show again to discuss what is perhaps one of the most important and underrated spooky films of all time. Plus, get a breakdown of some major stories that have made national headlines this week, and Mal gives their unique perspective on the Dave Chappelle/Netflix controversy.
