Shannon Muir and Todd Matthy join Marc and Greg to review Voltron Legendary Defender Episode 9: Crystal Venom. Both of our guests have been on the show before, so we spend some time catching up before we dive very deep into this episode review.
Shannon will be at LOSCON 43, which will take place November 25-27th, 2016 (Thanksgiving weekend) at the LAX Marriott.
She will be involved in several panels there, including:
