“The moon is a harsh mistress. Now, who wants a mustache ride?”

THIS WEEK: Brandon is joined by Liz, Tom and Zack for patriotic breakfasts, floppy Simpsons, Doctor Strange (SPOILERS this time!), early buzz around Spider-Man: Homecoming, the astoundingly beloved movie Arrival, the short stories of Ted Chiang, the seedy world of comic grading, and… listener emails!

“I’ll wear somethin’ spooky.”

NX: REVEALED! This week, join Brandon, Liz, Tom and Heidi as they (finally) react to Nintendo’s Switch and the latest update to Animal Crossing. Then, after the break, we refuse to spoil Doctor Strange (but try to talk about it anyway) and clap for Overwatch’s new hacker, Sombra. Oh– and read a listener email about quitting your job!

We hope you enjoy the show and laugh with us. America needs it right now.

“I’m his favorite and I’m pretty sure he’s right!”

Happy sort-of-Halloween episode, JKPeers! This week: Brandon is joined by Liz (fresh from her trip to Ireland), Heidi (enjoying the innards of a months-old birthday balloon) and, if you can believe it, Zack (now sporting a magnificent beard!) to discuss poor comic shop management, unfortunate theme bars, comedy movies, Doctor Strange, Thor: Ragnarok, adorable dinner thieves, British bake-offs, bad TV, The Fix, Ant-Men past and present, and Ninja Turtle origins. Oh, right– and a few listener emails!

“Is 35 the age where you reach your curious stage? And just have to start putting things in your mouth?”

This week’s show starts out somber as Liz and Brandon take some time to eulogize the late C. Martin Croker and reminisce over Careers of Turner Past… and, y’know, delve into a bit Great British Bake-Off and analyze a few Nanny Pixie Dream Girls. Then, after a quick break, Josh and Tom arrive to discuss Mario’s incredibly sudden debut on iPhone and the long-awaited unveiling of the PlayStation 4 Pro. PLUS: listener emails from some recent pic-a-nic associates!

“…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.

“You will die of stardom.”

This week, Brandon, Tom and Liz launch right into a discussion about Stranger Things (spoilers for the first two episodes only!) and get hyped for the potential weeaboo appeal of Japan’s 2020 Olympic Games. Then, after the break, Josh joins us as we grimace at the new Batman ’66 straight-to-DVD movie, laugh at Metal Gear Survive, and tackle the big ol’ zeitgeist clusterfuck surrounding No Man’s Sky (and, of course, answer some listener emails).

“Lemme tell you about a little guy named Ray Parker. WAIT… Junior.”

Comic-Con’s a wrap! Let’s make that official with Brandon, Liz, Josh, Tom and Harrison as they give spoiler-free thoughts on Star Trek Beyond and touch upon Wonder Woman, Justice League, Doctor Who, Doctor Strange, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, and, yes, Sonic Mania. Then, after the break, our heroes dive into the zeitgeist (get it?) surrounding Ghostbusters, get excited about death machines in Battlebots, and analyze medicine-sniping grandmas in Overwatch.

Oh– and we play another round of catch-up with listener emails!

“Don’t do it, stupid!”

Are you kids ready to talk about Pokémon GO?? Great! So let’s talk about soda and fast food instead with Brandon, Josh, Tom and Liz! Then, after the break, you can enjoy further conversations about the Legend of Korra team’s new take on Voltron, a creepy indie game masterpiece named Inside, the best place to find old game shows with wide ties, and the fully-Kickstarted Cannon Busters animation project.

Oh, hey– and we finally catch up on over a month’s worth of listener emails!

“I dare you to kill me, God!”

JKPeer Tyler returns to the show this week to celebrate the Electronic Entertainment Expo with Brandon, Josh, Tom and Liz– but first he must sit through a bit of chatter regarding Warcraft, Angry Birds, X-Men and Independence Day: Resurgence. Then, after a quick $$$ ADVERTISEMENT $$$, the gang finally explores every week-old nook and cranny of E3. All the major streams and press conferences get their due in a whoppin’ 120-some-odd minutes of tempered expectations and good-natured ribbing.

“Ze Libyans!”

This week’s show starts out sad as Brandon, Liz, Eric, Josh and Harrison bid farewell to comic book visionary Darwyn Cooke and, much less importantly, The Muppets and Disney Infinity. Then, after the break, we GUSH over Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End, analyze Captain America: Civil War, vibrate with excitement for Overwatch and tackle some listener emails– including an attempt at explaining what a “Gwenpool” is.
