Listen Up A-Holes #33. Avengers: Age of Ultron

There are no strings on us.

Joshua and Lani have a come to Whedon conversation about Age of Ultron. Spoiler: they didn’t like it much, so if you loved it, they still love you, but you might want to give this episode a miss. But if you do tune in, get ready for some comic book revelations about Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch’s true father, Ultron’s true creator, and just how Oedipal a robot can get.

Listen Up A-Holes #31: Captain Marvel HOT TAKE!

Higher, further, faster, baby!

For this Hot Take,  Joshua and Kelly gush about their newfound love of Captain Marvel, defer on how complicated Carol’s comic book backstory is, discuss how well this movie addressed identity-as-origin, and think a bit about compassion as a defining heroic trait.

This is our speaking voice when we’re upset with an unreasonable person!

Listen Up A-Holes #26: Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. (S2.1-4)

We don’t know the German word for nuts, but we bet if we tie a blasting cap to him, we’ll hear it.

For our triumphant return to Agents of SHIELD, Joshua and Lani take a look at some Four Color Facts Greatest Hits, again lament the cancellation of Peggy Carter, and discuss how this show finally got good!

Listen Up A-Holes #25: Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 1

Nothing goes over our heads. Our reflexes are excellent, and we would catch it.

For Guardians of the Galaxy Volume 1, Joshua and Lani invite Rob Heiret, host of Chipperish Media’s Star Wars podcast Metaphors Be With You, to talk about all the things that make Guardians great… and sometimes not so great.
