Matt Little and Brett White love comic books like Rogue loves Gambit — in a very unhealthy way that exhausts everyone around them. Join them as they dissect comic book culture with the focused totality of their nerd abilities.
Movie Recap: Guardians of the Galaxy
The movie Matt never thought he’d see has arrived! An assassin, a
scoundrel, a destroyer, a raccoon, and a tree have all come together to
form the heart of what just might be the best movie of the summer. Get
ready for some PRAISE. And spoilers, lots of spoilers if you haven’t
seen Guardians of the Galaxy yet!
Joining Matt and Brett are frequent guest Kevin Hines, as well as first
time guests Nate Kushner and Lacroix Scott. Get out there and see
Guardians of the Galaxy ASAP!

I like it but that doesn’t like you will.
Keep Katy out please
Matt & Brett are great, and their guests are for the most part very complimentary to the hosts. With one, really annoying exception: Katy Healy Whatshername. High pitched and inarticulate, she defines the geek girl wannabe with a vapid heart.
Best Comics insight!
I listen to a lot of comics themed podcasts and each one has their various focus or niche, but Matt and Brett have, by far, the best insight and thoughtful commentary I've heard on any podcast about comics.
It so great to hear someone putting as much thought into comic fandom as they do. Keep up the awesome job!!
