After joking about doing a 'Steven Universe' special episode, fans of the podcast wrote in asking -- and some outright demanded -- that we actually do one. We're happy to oblige and thus we present the MBP 'Steven Universe' Special!

For veterans of 'Steven Universe' (or folks who don't mind being spoiled), the guys count down and discuss their favorite episodes of the series. Obvious picks include fan favorites like 'The Answer' and 'Mr. Greg' but there are definitely a few surprises as well!
