    Avengers: End Game was not just a film with a great storyline and excellent performances. It was an paralleled, unifying experience that we shared with a room full of fellow fans. We were as ONE for 3 hours and 2 minutes. We cried and cheered together...some of us even hugged it out afterwards. A movie that can move an audience in that manner, is indeed unique.
    Avengers: End Game was an "end cap" for twenty-one films that fans invested time and emotion into. And what an ending it was!

    In this transmission of Anomaly, we talk about everything from the passing of Peter Mayhew (the actor who played Chewbacca in Star Wars), how End Game treated Black Widow and Captain Marvel, loving Peter Parker...in a mom way, getting a little verklempt with everyone else in the theater, and much more.
    Go to the show notes for links to the things things we discussed in this episode, like Angela's waterproof mascara, Peter Gunn's PG Porn, and the MCU Recap featured at The Alamo Drafthouse.

Totally fun

Totally worth a listen. Great to jog to if you're an anomaly. Only 1 request, more eps please.

A big bottle of Awesome Sauce!

Two people who have differing opinions on many topics who create great entertainment about what growing up a geek has meant to them without falling on the crutch of conflict to get ratings. Their both very funny and have an ingenious way of using their different personalities to paint an interesting nerd picture that utilizes their differences and shared point of views to create a larger palette to work from to make that picture

Nope

Not sure why the podcasters think it's dandy to have their toddlers in the room while they're recording; funny, since most podcasters I've heard are aggravated by traffic or pet noises and try to avoid them.
