In the deepest parts of the internet lie shadows. These shadows have names and they have struck fear, madness and mystery into the hearts of people just from mentioning them. These are the legends and the myths that have caused a number of concerns and have been investigated. If you dare think of taking this journey, Just remember. Curiosity killed the cat.

Join James and Maisie as they dive into the world of creepypastas and talk about their favourites and the real life events that have happened as a result of people taking them too far.

What is a fandom? Many philosophers have tried and failed to answer this mysterious phenomenon. Maisie and James are no philosophers, they're just two idiots put in front of a microphone, but by gosh they're going to try anyway. Enjoy discussion of Fanart, Cosplay, Fanfiction and the debate of the morals behind fan works and fandom.

With The Last Jedi soon to be hot off the presses the hosts along with special guest Mr Manning with are revisiting the beloved franchise that is STAR WARS! (Yes we know they already did a SW centred episode but shhhhhhhhh). You can bet they'll be some quality discussion over minute details of the universe nobody cares about and Maisie getting overly aggressive or excited over a certain character because hey, it wouldn’t be an 8-Bit news Episode without that! Given Maisie will probably quiz James on the franchise at some point in the show, let's hope he can make a knowledge run in less the 12 parsecs...
