THE INFINITY PODCAST may or may not be a deep dive on the Marvel Cinematic Universe; it may or may not offer hot takes on Ant-Man & The Wasp or Jeremy Renner’s Instagram. What THE INFINITY PODCAST will be — with certainty — is an hour in which hosts Rachel Schenk, Scott Thomas, and Patrick (H) Willems look at pop culture plus the world at large through the lens of a film series that is forever shaping both of them. They’re gonna laugh; they’re gonna argue; they’re gonna ride Marvel’s coattails to Infinity...and beyond. Join them. Excelsior!

I listen on Spotify and just came here to rate
I love this show and while I do not listen here, I enjoy our three friends over on Spotify. Their balance, or more accurately imballance, of Marvel related things and whatever they want to talk about is very engaging and keeps the show from getting stale. I am only on episode 46 and have spent the last week or two catching up and cannot wait to see where the show goes
Used to be better - causality to Virtual?
Man this show is tough to sit (or drive, walk, work) through now. Patrick is the real star, but Scott is the driving force from story to story. There’s great production in the new season (music cards, etc), but Rachel has become my personal sore spot. She doesn’t let Patrick finish a single thought in any recent episode. The talk-over is the worst on this show specifically, worse than when they were in old eps. It’s not the politics driving me away, but centering each topic or story in the body politik schtick has gotten old. The guys seem to be walking on eggshells at this point. Time stamps to skip this intro stuff would be welcome. I’d recommend David Chen’s work with Patrick, better flow and chemistry.
This podcast Slaps!
