love it

Really enjoyable chats through the MCU. A good variety of guests with some new points of view. Mitch Benn is a bit... relentless on Cilvil War, and there are sound quality issues on the 1st few but that balances out and academic Miriam Kent on Jessica Jones, TV critic Hanna Flint on Agent Carter and Podcaster Phil Catterall on the truly terrible Inhumans, are all particularly good.

Also enjoyable for it celebration of the previously unrecognized parallels between the MCU and the collected works of UK 90s comedians Lee & Herring.

Well now I’ve got to watch the movies!

I saw them (most of them at the cinema) and this podcast has inspired me to do a rewatch. Because it turns out I remember nothing, and they sound awesome
