Bonus - TNC Special

It has been SO long since we started recommending podcasts, and we have somehow managed to restrain ourselves from recommending any podcasts on our own network That’s Not Canon. But, alas, that streak is now broken!

We will restrain ourselves to one podcast each that we personally enjoy from TNC, and a little bit about the network itself. Also, please forgive Zane’s awkward opening, he is not particularly comfortable with blatant self-promotion.
