You’re the least supportive pretend girlfriend we’ve ever had.
We’re seeing things from many perspectives, Rashomon style, as Lani and Joshua respond to “Seeds,” “T.R.A.C.K.S.” and “T.A.H.I.T.I.”
We wouldn’t mind getting our hands on Thor. He’s so dreamy.
For Agents of SHIELD 8-11, Joshua and Lani find indestructible magic crowbars funnier than they have any right to be while discussing “The Well,” “Repairs,” “The Bridge,” and “The Magical Place.”
We've got this completely under control. That's why everything's on fire. It's time to go dark as Joshua and Lani return to the cinematic portion of the Marvel Cinematic Universe with Thor: The Dark World. Is Sif textually in love with Thor? Is Jane's one good moment...
Story expert Lani Diane Rich and superhero scholar Joshua Unruh are taking LISTEN UP, A-HOLES, your favorite Marvel Cinematic Universe podcast, on the road. The dynamic duo will bring their deep expertise in narrative theory and superhero history to several panels at...
We cannot be a part of your bad girl shenanigans.
For Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. S1.5-7, Joshua and Lani are intrigued by the “Girl in the Flower Dress,” electro-statically charged by “FZZT,” and enjoy the teamwork (and Sitwell getting shot) in “The Hub.”
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.
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.
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.
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.
