Oh, what an episode! What a lovely episode! When Furiosa, the most feared and respected Imperator of post-apocalyptic Australia suddenly escapes with Immortan Joe's wives, she expected at least a few of them to follow her tire tracks across the Outback. Fortunately, they're unable to do that, because one of the Citadel's prisoners, a mysterious blonde woman in a yellow jumpsuit, has taken advantage of the chaos created by Furiosa's escape to murder literally everyone with her bad-ass katana. Unfortunately, this MPAA-defying murder machine was originally captured by Furiosa herself, and has a knack for holding a grudge. Before long, Beatrix Kiddo has acquired a blood-stained motorcycle and taken off after the War Rig, determined to cross one last name off her list. Will the Citadel's most wanted pull the trigger on another astounding sniper shot, make her escape, and find her redemption? Or will the infamous Black Mamba track down her prey on the Fury Road and fulfill her promise to Kill...Furiosa?
Note: Miles and Claire are sadly suffering the consequences of recording audio after the apocalypse, but to be honest, they only thought it would be that easy for a second there.
Hey kids, it's time for another zany Sunday morning episode of Smash Fiction, starring your wholesome, ratings-friendly host, Hedonismbot! This week, the immensely positive role model that is this golden monument to robotic indulgence has captured two other characters and is demanding that they fight in his Romanesque arena, before a crowd of cheering fans, that the combat might slake his boredom for a few microseconds. Brought to you by Ovaltine!
Of course, this isn't a fight to the death -- we have sponsors to bend over backwards to not offend, after all. Instead, the winner of this battle will be the participant who puts on the best show and gives the crowd the most entertainment. Will legendary toon television star Roger Rabbit pick himself up yet again and demonstrate the true power of laughter? Or will the high-powered, Loki-infested superhero known as The Mask prove that, no matter how many times he asks, nobody will, in fact, stop him?

This episode originally aired on Patreon as a public bonus episode in November 2017. The original description follows:
Since we try to keep our episodes around an hour long, sometimes Miles has to leave a lot of side talk on the cutting room floor. But sometimes that side talk is just a little too...flavorful.
Enjoy this free-for-all pre-show bonus snippet from our Thor/Wonder Woman episode, but beware. It's a little spicy.
By the unlikely beard of Sappho! Thanks to the machinations of that fiendish trickster, Loki, the Smash Fiction Podcast must now engage in a contest of divinity that not even Claire can escape! Thor Odinson, God of Thunder and Prince of Asgard, and Diana, Goddess of War and Princess of Themyscira, each believe the other to be a nigh-unstoppable villain, and with a written sound effect that jumps right off the page, they come together in a whirling maelstrom of impossible physics. Will Thor once again prove himself worthy of the mighty hammer, Mjolnir, by using it to vanquish one of the DC Universe's most powerful? Or will Wonder Woman once again demonstrate that neither man, nor marvel, nor god is a match for the greatest warrior among the amazons?
Matias Tautimez joins the show for some super-powered math calculations, a strange, tingling feeling of consensus falls upon the lightning round, and Miles gently suggests that you kids get the hell off his lawn.
With the memory of their harrowing escape from Nexus City still fresh in their minds, the League decides to take some well-deserved downtime in Castle Grayskull. But it turns out that even extremely well-fortified magical sanctuaries aren't completely impervious, and when an old friend and a new enemy set their sights on the Power of Grayskull, the League will have to step up to defend it... or die trying.
Nico gets lost in her reading; Mordin seeks to do the impossible three times over; Stitch finds some loose change; Helena introduces herself with cake; and Dante sounds huskier than ever.
