Mystery Shack Lookback

Oct 22, 2021

In this special BONUS episode, Charley and Ella are joined by Shelby Sessler to unravel the secrets of the first episode of "Inside Job," the new Netflix series from Gravity Falls writer Shion Takeuchi and produced by Alex Hirsch.

We discuss whether conspiracy theory jokes can be funny these days, and why it's important and good that Reagan Ridley is unlikable and how that impacts her character dynamics. We also debate the existence of Kazaam.

NOTE: While uploading this episode we realized that we had been pronouncing Shion's name wrong. We are very sorry. Also, Shion is awesome.

Check out Shelby's voice acting and cosplay:
