Episode 129: Thornado!

, with special guest:

MCUWe’re back, dear listeners, with an episode all about power dynamics in the MCU (Marvel Comics movie universe) and superhero movies in general! And for this extremely long (and kinda drunken) discussion, we are joined by geography professor David Tyler McKay!

If you would like to drink along (and why wouldn’t you?), we recommend either Bushmills Irish Whiskey (Melissa’s choice), Grupo Olarra ‘Acantus’ Cabernet Sauvignon – Tempranillo (Windy’s choice), or New Amsterdam Vodka (which is what Melissa was feeding David).
