Listen Up A-Holes #12. Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D (S1.1-4)

We have the authority to downgrade your ass to a Winnebago.

It’s a magical podcast as Joshua and Lani begin their discussion of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Not terrible, but not yet as great as Lani promises it will become, the beginning of this Marvel Cinematic Universe still has some high points which include a wise-cracking Agent Coulson, an adorably connected FitzSimmons, and a beautifully pissed-off Nick Fury cameo.

Listen Up A-Holes #11. Agent Carter (S1.5-8)

We appreciate the finer things but do not want to know what happened on the finer things.

For the back half of Agent Carter season 1, Joshua and Lani discuss the secretary turned damsel in distress, the culpability question with a villain not under her own control, and the real love story thread running through it all, the friendship between Peggy and Jarvis.

Listen Up A-Holes #10. Infinity War Hot Take

You’re embarrassing us in front of the wizards.

It’s another hot take, which means a fully-spoiled and completely off-the-cuff chat about first impressions on the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s newest blockbuster, Avengers: Infinity War. Joshua and Lani do a wild and only moderately prepared deep-dive into their thoughts on the cast of thousands, the surprises that really shouldn’t have been surprises, and, of course, bedazzled gauntlets of unchecked cosmic power.

Listen Up A-Holes #9: Agent Carter (S1.E1-4)

Is that an automatic pistol? We want that.

For the first part of Agent Carter’s first season, Joshua and Lani talk about Peggy’s overall badassery, Jarvis’s competing loyalties, and Howard’s top-shelf narcissism, while raving over pretty much everything the show does, including that kickass hat.
