Gonna be awesome!
Done with the JJ podcast and 2 into DD. These guys make awesome podcasts for awesome shows. Still call them out when they're dumb but always appreciate the depth, camerawork, storytelling, and acting. GREAT listen.
Good so far!
Can't wait for my favorite Marvel character to get his own show, and in the meantime I get to listen to some good insight and analysis from this podcast! Keep up the good work fellas.
Best Marvel series reviews on the web
I've been a fan of these reviewers since finding the Daredevil podcast. These guys cover each show with serious attention to detail. They are easy to listen to and their analysis is thought-provoking. I get much more out of the story when I listen to the breakdown of each episode. Can't wait to binge this series and the podcast!
