It's time for our first stop in our Frontier journey with the intro human spirits arc! Kids get spirits, Digimon get saved, kids are mean to each other, trains get ridden, and more!
In this episode, Jeff looks into Frontier's troubling parallels to the white savior narrative, Asher examines the kids' communication failures, and we talk a lot about our impressions of the new cast. Plus the introduction of our new game show segment: Coastal Clash!
「If you could spirit evolve into a Digimon, who would you want to digivolve into?」
