    Bonus: Our Favourite Marvel Movies featuring over a dozen of our friends *Updated*

    Greetings, programs and welcome to a special bonus episode of the Awesome Friday Podcast. In our main episode this week, we asked over fifty of our friends to contribute their top ten Marvel Cinematic Universe entries and used those to establish a consensus top ten.We also asked everyone if they would be willing to record a short audio clip about their favourite with the intent of sprinkling those into the show. Well, we didn’t get one from everyone, but we did get a level of response that made that plan a little untenable. So we used them to build this special bonus episode.We’d very much like to thank everyone who contributed to the project and to this episode specifically. It has been a lot of fun and really rewarding to see our community come together.We’re going to start with Simon, and I speaking about our number one Marvel movies from our recent episode and then jump right into our friends speaking about theirs. We hope you enjoy it.THIS EPISODE FEATURES:Austin Belzer, AustinBMediaBrian Skutle, Sonic CinemaCraig McKenzie, KneelBeforBlog.co.ukDakota Arsenault, Contra Zoom PodDon Shanahan, 25 Years LaterJay Cluitt, Life vs Film, Deep Blue Sea The Podcast, The LAMBJeff Bulmer, Classic Movies Live!Michael Thomas, The Novice CinephileMovieRob, MovieRob, The MovieRob Minute PodcastRachel Ho, Freelance Critic, Contra Zoom PodRichard Kirkham, Kirkham Movie a Day, The LAMBShaurya Chawla, YouTubeThomas Stoneham-Judge, ThisIsForReel.comYL Koushik, Beta CriticCONNECT WITH US:       Homepage: https://awesomefriday.ca       Twitter: https://twitter.com/awesomefridayca           Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/AwesomeFriday           Instagram: https://instagram.com/awesomefridayca/           YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCJbgpYeyK4b_JH7H8P8INKA           Email: https://awesomefriday.ca/contact-us/           SUPPORT:            Patreon: http://patreon.com/mcsimpson           Ko-Fi: https://ko-fi.com/matthewsimpson

    Marvel Extravaganza! Ms Marvel, Thor: Love & Thunder, Our MCU Top Ten(s), and The Ultimate MCU Top Ten

    Greetings, programs, and welcome to our first anniversary! It's hard to believe we relaunched the podcast a year ago to the day, but here we are a year later. We are so grateful for all of you, for your listening and engagement, and for the community that we're starting to build. It's fitting that this week saw the release of two new Marvel Cinematic Universe entries because that's how the show began. Last year we covered the Disney+ series Loki and the film Black Widow. We decided to make an event of it, so this is a super-sized episode. Not only do we discuss the new Disney+ series Ms Marvel and the new film Thor: Love & Thunder, but we also break down both Simon and my MCU top ten lists, and then we asked over fifty of our friends to contribute to a consensus top ten list. That's right, the top ten MCU entries as decided by over fifty people.Visit this episode's homepage for streaming links powered by JustWatch for both of the new entries we discussed, a breakdown of the methodology used to determine the consensus top ten, anda. complete list of the more than fifty friends who contributed their own top ten lists. There is also a list of over 30 podcast networks you can find us on: https://awesomefriday.ca/2022/07/podcast-marvel-extravaganza/A bonus episode is also coming soon, featuring audio clips from some of our friends detailing their favourite MCU films; look for that shortly. Join us!There will also be a bonus episode coming soon with audio clips from our friends about their favourite MCU entries.
