Episode 25: Death, Fashion, and Steve Rogers



This week, on the eve of Omaha Comedy Week, the Badland ladies keep things brief, but go on at length about Dark Knight Rises, cool stuff on Tumblr, problematic movies from the 70's, and tell another nice Robert Downey Jr. story. Destiny gives her Sleepaway Camp feelings, Rhea doesn't want to live in the Big Bird Cage, and a Marvel VS DC fight is narrowly avoided.
