A Fun Listen

This may be a new podcast, but it’s quickly become one of the first ones I listen to.
The episodes are short and move along at a good pace.
The panelists are fun and entertaining.
I plan to keep listening.

Didn’t expect that

So, it’s bad for Spider-Man to be a white male, because……. Why? There are dozens of versions of Spider-Man, to say any of them are bad based on their skin color, just wow. Americans are stupid because…… why? Didn’t expect a group of authors, who are supposed to be inclusive creative minds, to be so ignorant.

Exceeds expectations
