The B-Movies Podcast | The Secrets of ‘Gravity Falls’ with Alex Hirsch

Warning: The following podcast contains some NSFW language and spoilers for the TV series Gravity Falls, all of the Air Bud movies and The Last Unicorn.

It’s one of the best shows on TV, and it’s come to one of the best podcasts on the internet (in our opinion, anyway). Gravity Falls creator Alex Hirsch on The B-Movies Podcast to tell us all about the secrets and mysteries of his hit TV series, including the episode he can’t get approved, the celebrity cameo we will forever be denied, why we may never get a full season Gravity Falls DVD or Blu-ray release, the ice bag, Gompers, Slender Man and more.

It’s a hilarious episode full of news and revelations about Gravity Falls and impersonations of The Last Unicorn. Give it a listen and you will NOT be disappointed.
