Oh boy, JKPeers! We’ve got a dang full gosh dang table, and we’re fit to bursting with San Diego Comic-Con bullet points! Heidi’s book launch adventures! Shazam! Aquaman! Robin saying a swear! Three Caballeros! A stunning review of Ready Player One! Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles! All kinds of stuff. Plus: Liz regales us with tales of Muppets and Lochs, Kyle gives his own rapid-fire Octopath Travleller review, and we discuss a bit of James Gunn’s whole situation. (And, of course, listener emails.)

Also? Buy Heidi’s book!

“Can we call it Ship Hop?”

There’s a storm a-brewin’, JKPeers, so let’s cut to the chase: this week’s overdue show has a Nintendo Direct (focusing on Splatoon 2’s Octo Expansion and Super Smash Bros. for Switch), the latest trailer for Avengers: Infinity War, a brief overview of Sonic Mania Plus (hello, Mighty and Ray!), a brief intro to Thundercat, some chatter on A Wrinkle in Time, and reflections on incoming and outgoing Disney matters. Plus: listener emai-[THUNDERCLAP]

“What the hell’s a Vegeta?”

Black Panther was pretty gosh dang good, you guys! Whether you agree or don’t, join Liz, Kyle, Brittany, Sarah, Tom and Brandon as they discuss the finer points of Black Panther— as much as they’re qualified to, at least. Then, after the break, the gang offers a Janelle Monae crash course, nods pointedly in favor of the movie Annihilation, and tosses out a few sick burns on asshole authors. Plus: listener emails!

“…and that’s how Mary Jane died.”

Whoaaaa nelly, JKPeers! It’s our annual Dragon*Con 2016 wrap party! Join us for three distinct conversations with this year’s survivors (including special guests from the Level 7 Access Marvel Cinematic Universe podcast) as we discuss arcades, animation, pro wrestlers, parades, little kid fandom, Homestar Runner, supervillain science, unsanitary cheesecloth, space sex schedules, zombie makeup gauntlets, and SO! MUCH! MORE!

Never mind the constant hum of central air conditioning. Pay it no mind. Move along. Move along.
