Some people in and around Quadropolis are absolutely obsessed with answering one question: "Which is worse -- Fish Out Of Water's powers, or his name?" Find out what happens when he's offered a wish about his superpowers by the mysterious forces that Rainbow Chaser is in contact with!
We're a legit podcast now -- we have sponsors! Remember the boring old days of just hearing a story? Now you get to hear an advertisement first! LUCKY DAY! We hope you enjoy learning all about Auntie Antionette's Pick 'Em Off Pizza. Oh, yeah, and our heroes do some stuff in this episode too.
We're back from our mid-season break. You know who else is back? Butlerbot! But they don't have a working speaker-mouth, camera-eyes, or microphone-ears yet. Is anything really going on in that digital brain of theirs? We'll zoom in and take a look!a
Happy Pride, Weirdos! This episode is the culmination of our 2019 Pride Month story arc! As Dagney's plan transforms from "I bet there's going to be a cool twist" to "Holy cow, she's acting like a supervillain," Ameenah "Graphene" and Kirby "Baninja" are prisoners on the back of Mrs. Pawnson's invisible plane. How are they going to get out? And what are they going to do once they're out? We're excited to be part of the Kids Listen Pride Sweeps. Check out these other great shows participating!

While Dagney is making her deal with a villain, we turn back to the ground. Rainbow Chaser, the superhero with powers that are even harder to use well than Fish Out Of Water's, is being chased by a superpowered snot rhino. The only person there to help him is, well, Fish Out Of Water. Hopefully they can find someone with a superpower that doesn't rely on external circumstances...
Oh no! Is Dagney betraying the Weirdos? Find out what happens aboard Mrs. Pawnson's invisible jet. (Seriously, what kind of "save the endangered animals nonprofit" has an invisible jet?)
As we fast-forward out of Jules' flashback to present time, we've got a bit of a longer episode for you today. We meet a new hero, our superheroes get new costumes, and we finally learn what Dagny "ITGirl" Work has been plotting this whole time. (Aren't there already enough people named "Work" who plot?)
Speaking of Aquaman... wait, was someone actually talking about Aquaman? Oh no -- we are! Gaffer Sam is punishing us for missing an episode by making us... compliment... this "hero." Later, in the episode, we find out what happens when a Binary Consolidated AI takes over a nuclear submarine with 3 kids on it!
OK, I guess if they made a feature film out of Aquaman, we should at least TRY to tell our aquatic avenger's heroic journey tale. Tune in for this two-part origin story to learn how Jules Jones became Fish Out of Water!
How do you escape the world's most powerful corporation when your secret lair is a treehouse and you're not even old enough to drive? Find out if Jules' parents are really as cool as he thinks they are in this week's episode!
