Happy Tuesday, boys and girls! We have some scheduling issues at the start of next week that makes the Firewall & Iceberg Podcast after this one questionable in date (though you'll likely still get one soon), so Dan and I wound up pairing this week's only notable premiere with two shows debuting a week from tonight, along with a couple of good listener questions and some discussion of last night's powerful "Better Call Saul." Enjoy.

The rundown:

"Powers" (00:00:55 - 00:15:20)
"iZombie" (00:15:25 - 00:24:55)
"One Big Happy" (00:25:00 - 0035:20)
Listener Mail: The "Empire" phenomenon (00:33:00 - 00:42:50)
Listener Mail: "Last Man on Earth" (00:43:30 - 00:51:25)
Monday's "Better Call Saul" (00:51:45 - 01:10:55)
