Tropes We're Tired Of, Hulu's "11.22.63," and Steve Zissis (HBO's "Togetherness")

A jam-packed episode featuring listener mail, Matt and Margaret's take on "11.22.63," and an interview with Steve Zissis. Listeners wonder which tropes Matt, Margaret, and Gazelle are most tired of, as well as the definition of "mythology" when it comes to television (if such a definition actually exists). Then, the group discusses Hulu's new miniseries "11.22.63," based on the Steven King novel of the same name, in which a man travels back in time in hopes of preventing the assassination of JFK. Finally, an interview with Steve Zissis, co-creator and star of HBO's "Togetherness."

This episode includes spoilers for "11.22.63" and "Togetherness."
