Brilliant podcast on the MCU

Always enjoyable and nicely in-depth chat about the MCU that manages to hold the line perfectly so it’s a good listen for those with a vague interest but also those (like me) Marvel nerds. Tim is a brilliant host with an excellent range of guests and I’ve started to find myself not just excited about new MCU shows/films so I can see them, but also because it means a new ep of this podcast. Would def recommend.

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
