Podcast: Ant-Man and The Wasp: Quantumania & The Mandalorian, Season 3

Ant-Man and The Wasp: Quantumania & The Mandalorian

Greetings programs and welcome to this week’s episode of the show.  This week is all Disney all the time as we are slightly late to the part on Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania but also slightly early to the party for The Mandalorian Season 3, of which we have seen the first two episodes. 

Additionally, starting this week we have bonus content for our Patreon supporters.  
Typically, whenever we record a podcast, there’s a solid 15-30 minutes of us talking about random things that go unrecorded, and more than a few people have told us that they’d like to hear those conversations too. Well, now you can!

Podcast: The Last of Us (w/ Guest Shaurya Chawla)

The Last of Us

Greetings programs! You’re reading this correctly, a second episode this week! I was given access to the entire first season of the new HBO series The Last of Us, an adaptation of the PlayStation video game franchise of the same name. Joining me to speak about it is my friend Shaurya Chawla, who has not only seen the whole series but, unlike me, has played the game.

In this episode, we will give some brief thoughts on the whole of season one, followed by a more in-depth discussion of the premiere episode of the series, which has just finished airing on HBO. We keep the first half spoiler free, but there are some details in the back half.

Join us!
