Play • 1 hr 15 min


  • Veronica infiltrates a sorority to investigate Parker’s rape, and instead finds a secret medical marijuana farm.

  • The ongoing campus rapist plot boils down to frats versus feminists. The two genders!

  • Wallace and Logan participate in some recreation of the Stanford Prison Experiment, and unfortunately we have to endure it with them.

  • Weevil is back! And starts working for Keith! But then punches a suspect, so he’s fired.

  • Logan discovers some financial irregularities that reveal that he has a secret half-brother!

  • Loganica are having problems, because he likes playing poker and she likes The Arts and putting trackers on him.

  • Plus: some SPORTSBALL problem; a Fitzpatrick kills another Fitzpatrick; Veronica has a new job in the library SHH NO TALKING; and Keith takes a case for a hot lady.

Join Jenny Owen Youngs and Helen Zaltzman to investigate Veronica Mars season 3 episodes 2, 3 and 4: My Big Fat Wichita Linebacker Don’t Surf, and dig into such mysteries as how and why a professor would do a Stanford Prison Experiment-esque study; whether traps on your boobs are booby traps; and why the Chippendales landed on shirt closures as their sexy outfit of choice.

Content note: Veronica Mars contains heavy themes, and this episode includes storylines concerning murder, rape, violence, drugs, anti-semitism, and abusive parents.

Violette Morris
Violette Morris, a powerhouse athlete with 14-inch biceps, discovered a love for trousers and fast driving while piloting ambulances for the Red Cross during the First World War. But her outrageous and mannish style – she dated Josephine Baker, smoked, and cut her breasts off to better fit behind the wheel of a race car – outraged the respectable upper-middle-class world of women's athletics. And when she was cast out of respectable society, she became a Nazi spy and a sadistic torturer known as the "hyena of the Gestapo." ----more---- SOURCES: Colvin, Kelly Ricciardi.

337: Big Dickinson Energy
The regular panelists had to forge ahead without esteemed colleague Kathryn VanArendonk in our discussion of Dickinson's second season; that's the bad news. The good news is, we all like Apple TV's imagining of poet Emily Dickinson's life and loves with lots of swearing and twenty-first-century slang. How DOES the show balance the demands of historical fact with flights of fancy, and not take itself too seriously? And are Season 2's creepy [character spoiler redacted] the key to its success? Later, we went Around The Dial with The Masked Dancer, Everything Is Going Great, Cheers Season 5, Mr. Mayor's debut, and Lupin and other "Pringle mysteries." A new detective franchise won, an old HBO franchise lost, and we continued the episode's verse theme with the Tara-crafted Tube Tunes VII. Pass Nobody an earbud for an all-new Extra Hot Great. SHOW TOPICS * Dickinson * ATD: Everyone Is Doing Great * ATD: The Masked Dancer * ATD: Cheers * ATD: Mr. Mayor * ATD: Lupin * Winner and Loser of the Week * Game Time: Tube Tunes VII SHOW NOTES * Kathryn VanArendonk, with us in spirit with her Dickinson deep dive for Vulture * Tara's Everyone Is Doing Great review for Primetimer * Tara's Masked Dancer review, ditto * Tara's Force Five podcast appearance * Sarah on Tiger's identity crisis for Primetimer * Photo: Apple TV DISCUSSION * Talk about this episode on its dedicated page on ExtraHotGreat.com   See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.
