Just finished the first 50 episodes!!!

The first 50 episodes were amazing!!! The hosts go into extreme detail to discuss intricate plot lines, themes, and character development of various characters in the X-Men comic books. They are hilarious and what makes the podcast so appealing is that they are not afraid to poke fun of and point out mistakes that the writers or illustrators have made. The hosts are extreme fanatics of X-Men and their love for X-Men is evident in the passionate depth of each episode!!!

An X-Man Fan Must Listen!

As a lifelong X-Man fan, this show is my guiding light. They start at the beginning and keep moving on through. They have a perspective on intersection that I feel is incredibly important. I can’t recommend this show enough.

X-Men A-Z

I was first introduced to the X-Men with the 90's cartoon. Later, it was my brother's comics. Since then, I have fallen into and out of interest with the various series. Yet, they were my first superhero team. With massive gaps in my X-Knowledge, I am happy to go on this journey with Jay and Miles. Their nuanced and well researched details about a specific event and its larger impact on the X-universe fulfills my desire to learn about comic's greatest superhero soap opera.
