Between Season 2 and 3, the creators of LOST made an alternate reality game called “The Lost Experience”, which expanded the backstory of the DHARMA Initiative. It was designed to satiate the most die hard of fans who wanted more answers than the show could provide, and involved so many pieces it’s remarkable it even happened at all. Ben and Kevin discuss, if they feel it was a success, and what the ARG was and what the most important takeaways from it were.
From there, the duo discusses the last entrant in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Ant-Man and the Wasp! With the beloved Kate Austen in a titular role, it only felt right to do so. They discuss their thoughts on the movie, some LOST flashbacks they experienced, why it is other LOST actors haven’t achieved a similar level of success, and a story that of an obnoxious movie-goer. It goes without saying there are MCU spoilers in this one!

Rose and Bernard grew to be two of the most beloved background characters in LOST. So much so, that the show gave them their own flashback episode, providing us with their “meet cute”, the reason they were in Australia, and Rose’s unique reason for not wanting to be rescued.
Our second episode is much less pleasant. As the death toll doubles, rumor and innuendo began to swirl in regards to the real life drama surrounding the actresses whose times on the show came to the end. Our hosts tackle these rumors while also giving their summation of the two characters lifetimes on the island. The drama is ramping up as we inch closer to the season two finale!
