349: Can’t Wait for the Absorbaloff to Come Back (The Vanquishers)

You heard it here first, from the podcast that the show is based on rather than the other way around ™.

The end of our first season that we podcasted along with the episodes as they aired. So that’s gotta be something important in our history right? And three episodes from now we’ll basically have finished up this whole era on the podcast, with our first podcast along regeneration episode. Anyway, it’s The Vanquishers, written by Chris Chibnall and aired on December 5, 2021.
