A recurring topic on the podcast is the space western TV series The Mandalorian. Two hosts convene to discuss the latest episodes. Anthony Mayes, the podcast's producer, runs the episode as Darth Cornpuzzle. Cohost Darth Amin joins him. For fans of The Mandalorian, these episodes provide hilarious commentary on the show.

Another example of random conversations is in the episode "Two Hundred-Twelve." The team discusses fringe friend groups. It's that awkward moment of meeting someone who's more like an acquaintance than a friend. Cohost Jess recommends leaving one's hometown to avoid similar situations.
