Episode 8: Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2

Turn on your Walkmans, our episode on Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is here! (We're assuming you've transferred this podcast to cassette.) Katie and Wesleigh braved the theater opening weekend to bring you our commentary on the newest movie in the Marvel franchise. We'll discuss how this film rounds out all of its characters and touches on some heavy subjects, why boogers are greater than or equal to family, Space Kirk (not from the Enterprise, the other one), and learn that Wesleigh *might* be related to the twins from Sister, Sister.

Episode 7: Watchmen w/ Luke

Who watches the watchmen? Wesleigh and our guest do — Katie merely survives the experience. For this week’s Marathon May superhero film, we tackle the incredibly long adaptation of Alan Moore’s renown comic Watchmen by Legendary Director Zack Snyder. Along with Luke, comic creator and connoisseur, we discuss why different genres of comics are important, how this movie is similar to P.S. I Love You, why you should read the book instead, and introduce Katie to Howard the Duck.

Meet this week's guest, Luke! (and Tallulah)
