In a post-apocalyptic future, Marvel's Wastelanders: Star-Lord finds Peter Quill (Timothy Busfield) and Rocket (Chris Elliott) a little paunchier, a little slower, and a lot saltier than they were during the glory days of the Guardians of the Galaxy. They quickly discover the Earth isn't what it used to be either, when they crash land 30 years after all the world's super villains seized control.
The former Guardians are accompanied by a Rigellian Recorder, affectionately dubbed "Cora", who documents their mission to find the Black Vortex--an ancient relic reported to yield cosmic powers--before guillotine collars bestowed upon them by The Collector snap their necks. In the barren, desolate wasteland of the mid-west as controlled by Doctor Doom, they encounter the ageless telepath, Emma Frost, outlaw Ghost Riders, and the bloodthirsty Kraven the Hunter. Who will find the Black Vortex first and what will be the price of its power?

Entertaining and so much fun
Great podcast, stayed faithful to the witty banter and hijinks of the original franchise. Unfortunately, the two main voice actors who are very good in their roles, sound so similar, it’s sometimes hard to tell who’s speaking, Quill or Rocket.
Looking forward to next installment.
Besides the OG Wolverine podcast this and Black Widow are the best of the bunch by far.
podcast goes hard
