Infinity War: Very Good Gay Dads

Surprise, surprise – we’re talking about the latest MCU movie.

A decade of build-up has brought us to Avengers: Infinity War, the two-part opus of Marvel’s (Disney’s) Cinematic Universe. In this episode, your hosts reflect on Part 1. Of course, there are a ton of spoilers about the movie itself. But here is a bonus spoiler about the episode as a whole: Jackson and Daniel actually agree on something for once.

It is nearly impossible to live up to the fan expectations that come with a project as drawn out as the MCU – but Infinity War does an admirable job of trying to please. While it is certainly an impressive spectacle, your hosts dig in deeper to find out if there is any bang behind the flash.

They also toss out some recommendations:

This week you should watch A Quiet Place

This week you should play Monster Prom

Black Panther: The Best Q

Hey everyone, we’re back with the content you crave:

Two white dudes talking about Black Panther.

Both Daniel and Jackson agree that this is the best of the MCU so far, and warranted a full episode. There is a lot of important cultural context for this movie as well, and while we’re not fully equipped to discuss that at length, we are gonna do our best to convince you that this is not only a great movie, but an important one you should see.

We also have some recommendations:

This week you should read The Best of Richard Matheson 

This week you should listen to Weird Al Yankovich’s Poodle Hat

Hey fans of Player’s Guide,

In honour of Marvel releasing the first full Justice League trailer, Jackson and Daniel are discussing Iron Fist, the final entry into the Defenders line-up – which you can check out on Netflix. Having both totally watched the series, your hosts have a multitude of opinions and musings on this – Marvel’s most epic superhero tour de force.

Brace yourselves, spoilers and unabashed fandom glee ahead.

This week:

MCU 3: Sweet Baby Face

Hey everyone!

Sorry for the delay in this week’s post, there was some trouble during the uploading process, but here we are.

This week, Jackson and Daniel are discussing the latest season of Netflix and Marvel’s wunderkind Daredevil. Our hosts had pretty simple feelings regarding the first season of the show, but the second one has garnered more… complex reactions. Complex enough to warrant a podcast to themselves.

Of course, spoilers abound, so beware if you haven’t finished it yet.

Once you have finished yelling at your audio player because Jackson and Daniel are so obviously wrong, you can unwind by checking out these recommendations:

This week you should play Nevermore from Smirk and Dagger Games

This week you should read the Truth and Reconciliation Report from the Canadian Government – even if you’re not in Canada.

Hey guys!

In light of the critically acclaimed new Netflix series, Jessica Jones, Jackson and Daniel revisit the MCU and comic book heroes in general. If you are curious about what to expect from Jessica Jones, or want to have your opinions vindicated/ridiculed after marathoning the whole thing – this is the podcast for you.

Fair warning: spoilers abound.

Of course, there are also some recommendations:
