My favorite podcast

Excellent podcast in which two hosts (Zack and Adam) read and rate three X-Men stories each week. The hosts have a great dynamic with each other, having an entertaining approach. I’ve been a longtime X-Men fan but this has opened up many new stories to explore. Highly recommend.

Disappointing

Sadly, this podcast feels like it has gone downhill fast. They barely actually talk about the actual comics anymore, they are too busy trying to force bits

One of the top X-men podcasts

Great retrospective of all eras of X-men. Definitely check it out if you are an X-men fan
