This time on the Couch: Mike, James, and Shée celebrate what may be the last Earth Day ever with 1992's Captain Planet no. 9! Gaia's finally had just about enough of this shit and has chosen five kids to combat the world's ecological ills! If you think that sounds like child endangerment, then congratulations, you officially know more about being a parent than the spirit goddess of Earth. Luckily, the Planeteers have the ability to call upon bemulleted superbro Captain Planet to step in when things get a little too hairy, and also to fix the massive damage they accidentally cause while attempting to save the environment. Looks like you get what you pay for when you assume that a group of latchkey kids have enough education to preserve an entire planet full of countless incredibly complex ecosystems. Hey, you know who else would make great Planeteers? Adult scientists with college degrees. Take a break from your busy day of sobbing over the imminent collapse of society with the only podcast made from 100% recycled jokes!
