What Can Steven Universe Teach Us? (With Special Guests!)


It’s a Steven Special SPECTACULAR!

With SU Future having ended, the guys discuss what the world might look like without such a transcendental series to fill the void, reflecting on what the show brought to the masses that set it apart from the rest of Western animation. To do that, they needed guests!

First up is the return of Joshua Lapin-Bertone, who talks with the guys about his experience with Steven Universe including personal connections. Stay tuned at the end for a SUPER sneak interview with actress Nicole Maines!

Second, Kelly returns and talks with Donovan about discovering Steven, the subtleties and weighty themes of the six seasons, and the kind of shows carrying the baton for the future.
