A weekly podcast on comics, film, television and collectibles, all fueled by the magic of frappacinos.
Caffeinated Comics – The Capitol Riot
How did we get here? Jon talks to Bill Monroe about the decline of the Republican party from Reagan’s “shining city on a hill” to a mob of seditionists attacking the Capitol spurred on by the President himself. They take a journey from the 80s to today, marking off the signposts of Newt Gingrich, the Iraq War and yes, Morton Downey Jr. Plus, Bill details the breaking point between his party and himself, where we go from here and just to keep us on track, “Star Trek: Lower Decks”. [EP209]
Caffeinated Comics – Wonder Woman 84
What? And what now? And why would? So many questions and very few answers are brought up by Jon, Steven and Howie Weingarten about the latest DC movie now premiering on HBO Max. Is it a Christmas gift from Patty Jenkins or just another example of 2020? Plus, a re-enactment of “The Wishmaster 2”. [EP208]
Caffeinated Comics – Merry Christmas, Ms. Sileo
When it’s in 2020, does the holiday even count? Michelle Sileo talks shopping, decorating and family gatherings in the time of COVID. Plus, how to get gifts for teenagers with shifting interests, sending best thought for John Mulaney and why Jon and Michelle don’t remember meeting. [EP207]
Caffeinated Comics – The Mandalorian Season 2 finale
Who likes SPOILERS? Jon, Steven and Elliott Serrano go deep into the revelations of the final episode of “The Mandalorian”. Was that a deep fake? What happens to Baby Yoda now? Who wants a Boba Fett show? Has Disney announced too much stuff? Plus, a Comixology sale you won’t believe. [EP206]
Caffeinated Comics – Disney Investor Extravaganza
Disney announces the everything! Jon, Steven, Lisa and Tina discuss 15 new Marvel shows, 10 Marvel movies, 10 Star Wars shows and 4 seasons of It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia. How do the new series affect the MCU? Is there a Phase 4? Is Galactus coming? How many people are actually watching “The Mandalorian”? Plus, if the year delay help or hurt “The Eternals” and “Black Widow”, Disney worships “The Volume” and Lisa and Tina get married in lockdown. [EP205]
Caffeinated Comics – Wherefore Art Thou, Movie Theaters?
Warner Brothers is sending all of their 2021 movies to HBO Max! Elliott and Jon discuss what that means for movie theaters. Are they done? Will drive-ins take over? And was going to the movie theater all that great an experience? Plus, “The Mandalorian” steps it up, “Star Trek: Discovery” gets ignored, and why are Mark Hamill and Patrick Stewart fighting? [EP204]

Fun Channel thank you !
Great Show , Great channel
One of my favorite podcasts! I listen every week. Just wish I could download it in .mp3 instead of .wma through iTunes. Keep up the great work!
I started listening to the show once I saw an ad for it in Chimera's Comics, and I've been an avid listener ever since I saw it back in 2013. This around the time I was getting into comics, and it's been great hearing the guys who have been into that culture for years give recommendations, which was useful in becoming as fluent in comic book culture as I am today. I love that they don't stick to just comic books, and that the show naturally ends up on topics like video games or classic movies, (2 topics I also love) making the podcast seem much more naturally flowing than other, more segmented shows. It all comes together to make a consistently great show that I try to listen to as soon as possible each week. (Also I was promised a shoutout if I wrote this review, and I got a shoutout on the most recent episode, so hopefully this creates enough demand for me to be a guest (just kidding!))
