Thanks to Brian, we’ve got another commission this week. It’s the first and last episodes of Invincible season 1. You might not expect a bookended sampling of a series to work very well, but aside from not knowing a few of the side characters, I apparently missed out on almost nothing by skipping the other 6 episodes. Join us for a discussion of this animated deconstruction of the superhero genre.
People send us cool stuff all the time, and we wanted to give thanks and show off said cool stuff. How do? A mailbag video!
This month: Human Action by Ludwig von Mises sent to us by, Funko POP! Wicket W. Warrick sent to us by Alexis, Pickle Rick pipe and 24k rolling papers courtesy of That High Couple, Florence + the Machine tea towels provided to us by OpusWho, BroBasket whiskey sampler provided by Dyecast, and finally, watched provided by Timex.
Surprise! Cecily and Alexis (pin-y) will be covering HBO’s latest His Dark Materials starting Nov. 4, with full episode coverage posted the Wednesday after an episode airs.
In preparation, they have released coverage of the 2007 movie, The Golden Compass. This movie was a fun romp that is different from the books and confusing during most points, but nonetheless, a fun jumping off point for starting coverage of His Dark Materials. Please enjoy this episode, and join us again in November for the series premiere!
I’m working on polishing an idea for a new show where I analyze podcast trends based on iTunes charts, Patreon and Kickstarter projects, and various other resources. This is the first episode. It’s rough, but the show will likely get better.
People occasionally send us stuff. We had a perfect storm of awesome gifts and other mail this week so we thought we’d show it off.
