Kate is on assignment (read: geeking out mightily) at San Diego ComicCon this week, but what we lack in sound quality this episode we’ll make up for in TV nerdery over the next week or so. Spoiler alert: Expect lots more Steven Universe talk. We kick things off this week with comedy and reality, including HBO’s new comedy Vice Principals, Full Frontal with Samantha Bee’s RNC coverage, Angie Tribeca, and a double helping of The Great British Baking Show. Next, it’s over to the genre and drama offerings, including a surprise Steven [Universe] Bomb, The Night Of, Greenleaf, and UnREAL. Afterward, Kate welcomes composer David Schwartz to the podcast to discuss his work on Lady Dynamite, Arrested Development, Northern Exposure and more.
