Said it all above.
So good. Love listening to these dudes and juxtaposition between knowledge of comics and none it great.
Just discovered this and if you have a few hours per podcast episode, it is really good fun. Doesn’t take itself too seriously but is filled with loads of interesting information on the characters if you like the movies and want to learn more about their origins or history. Really recommend it for any casual fan of the movies who wants to delve a bit deeper into the characters.
