In this episode, shit gets dark as one character is forced to deal with a debilitating illness and the very real possibility that he'll never again be able to do the thing he loves most. It's handled with tact and care, and it's one of the things that make this show so grown-up for its demographic. There's also a space Olmec that flies around in a giant trombone, because this is still the Disney Channel.
This episode of Oban Star Racers carries a content warning for an alien species name that is identical to a UK-specific ableist slur. While we want to believe this wasn’t intentional, we will not use the name aloud on the podcast.
Sorry for the delay in getting this one up! Mary's laptop charger died on Monday night, so things were held up for a few days while a new one shipped. x.x
