    Episode 81 - LISAN AL GAIB (Dune Part II Recap + Breakdown)

    Episode 81 - LISAN AL GAIB (Dune Part II Recap + Breakdown)

    It's been a couple of weeks since the release of Dune Part II and we are certain our lives will never be the same...
    LISAN AL GAIB! 
    We've let some time pass since we have both seen the film, to gather our many thoughts and process the magic that we experienced on screen. If you've seen Dune, you know exactly what we're talking about.
    We discuss our favorite scenes, character changes and what we thought of Denis' take on one of our favorite universes. 
    Nerd News this week is a lot of banter, discussing St. Patrick's Day in Chicago and how to survive if you're in the service industry. We're still just a shell of the person we once were before that shift. Some exciting Star Wars news as well, as we are on the brink of The Acolyte series, which will take place 100 years before The Phantom Menace! Fun times to be a nerd!

    Episode 80 - Dry January Woes

    Episode 80, nice to meet ya! Can't believe we've arrived at just 30 shy of 100 episodes! If you've made it this far with us, we appreciate you more than you know!
    We start off this episode with a slight tangent on how the popular, "Dry January," saga is going for us. Are we participating? Was it a facade? Are we directly hurting the economy of our own industry by not drinking? S. O. S.
    We directly attack the Academy for not nominating The Iron Claw YET AGAIN. You're wrong, we are right. End of story. Through our Oscars discussion, we realize we have forgotten most movies we've seen in 2023. Thank you long covid.
    ECHO premiered a few weeks ago on Disney+ and we're here to break it down. More specifically, we are here for Maya Lopez supremacy, and Chula, you can kick rocks for being an absent grandmother when Maya needed you the most. Biscuits - you're the real MVP. Still reading this and have 0 idea what we're talking about? That's why you should listen to this episode - DUH!

    Episode 79 - Welcome Back to Relatable Nerds (Marvel What If? Deep Dive + Breakdown)

    Episode 79 - Welcome Back to Relatable Nerds (Marvel What If? Deep Dive + Breakdown)

    We're baaaaaaaaaack with the FIRST episode of 2024!
    We took a little break during the holidays to spend time with our family and friends, and take a much needed mental break, to ensure we'd be back and ready for all of what 2024 is to bring! 
    The burn out was real, as 2023 was an incredible year for us and we are FOREVER grateful for everyone's support and helping grow our channel by 20k! 
    This inaugural episode of 2024 features a few nerd news rumors (What if Star Wars? could be happening) and an episode by episode breakdown of Marvel's What If? Season 2!

    Episode 78 - Ugly Hot

    Episode 78 - Ugly Hot

    This week, we take a break from recapping our favorite shows (still taking time to grieve the end of Loki) and have a full fledged, nerd news episode.
    Word on the town is, Pedro Pascal is the new Reed Richards. Were we excited by this news or terrified? Or....both. 
    Are you familiar with the term 'ugly hot?' Here's a hint: Adam Driver
    Have a happy holiday if you're celebrating this week! We'll see you in December for Invincible recaps!

    Episode 77 - A Glorious Purpose

    Episode 77 - A Glorious Purpose

    We say goodbye to one of our favorite Marvel characters, Loki, as we recap the season finale of the final season of "Loki."
    Throughout the entire MCU and the comic books we grew up reading, Loki has always been a favorite character of ours (and now a very fond friend), that we anticipated seeing and watching devilishly while he makes everyone's lives around him more difficult. 
    The "Loki" series completely humanized Loki, and showed us a side to him we haven't quite seen before. We're sad to say goodbye (for now) to the prince of mischief, the keeper of time and an absolute horny bastard. We know we'll see you again one day Loki.
    Our nerd news this week should also not be missed. The strike is now over and life can return to normal. Dune Part 2 was supposed to premiere this past week too, so we take a moment of silence to honor what will become our favorite movie of 2024.

    Episode 76 - Timely Matters (Lok Episodes 3+4 Recap)

    Episode 76 - Timely Matters (Lok Episodes 3+4 Recap)

    We are live from The Lincoln Lodge this past week, recapping the past couple of weeks, which was basically Loki taking over our ENTIRE LIVES (well most of it)
    What an EPIC series this has been so far. From meeting new variants of Kang, to seeing Mobius explore who he truly is and of course, Loki's phenomenal growth as a character - we are nothing short of obsessed.
    We also discuss what we did to conclude spooky season on Halloween...

Hilarious!

Ilsa and Kyra are one of the funniest duos I’ve ever listened to. They do not get enough credit for their podcasts and YouTube reactions! I’m constantly laughing at their antics!
