    Mark Millar Part 3: Millarworld, Kick-Ass and Conclusions

    Mark Millar Part 3: Millarworld, Kick-Ass and Conclusions

    A Scottish Podcast About Scotland!

    Finally, the conclusion of our Mark Millar extravaganza.

    This week we explore Millar's original creations such as Kick-Ass, Wanted, The Secret Service and Jupiter's Legacy and the multiple movies they spawn. We discuss Millarworld and his massive ongoing deal with Netflix, as well a bit about the man himself, his politics and his charity work.

    After our marathon recording session we ended up having some tech difficulties towards the end and we lose Chris for a bit. 

    So pull on the wetsuit and grab your batons, because it's time to to nut up or shut up with the  Thistle Do Nicely Men!

It’s Scottacular

Do yourself a favor and listen to the show. You won’t regret it I promise. It’s very funny . Your guaranteed, but not limited to four laughs per episode. It’s got it all history, culture , movies, music. You’ll learn a lot about Scotland. Like what’s Nessie up to. What does Iron-bru taste like. We’ll sort of, but not really. The fierce and noble saviors of Scotland the manatees. Does Rory ever get on blind date. When does a dog become a horse. What really happened to old McDonald.

Every episode is an absolute banger

Total comedy, total fun, love love love this podcast. Force it upon my friends any chance I get. Please keep making the show after the 100th episode. I’ve learned so much and have used several bits of information and recommendations to help plan a trip to Scotland. Thanks guys!

Why isn’t everyone listening to this

There are no bad episodes. Each one is funny and quirky. I appreciate the irreverent humor and the genuine camaraderie that exists between the hosts. It’s like hanging out at your favorite pub with the funniest guys you know.
