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!
