“Hell no. Un-kiss.”

Boy, this week’s show is a roller coaster of emotions. Pull down that questionably secure safety bar and get your hands in the air alongside Brandon, Liz, Tom, Kyle, and Sarah as they discuss The Simpsons’ incredibly lame response to comedian Hari Kondabolu’s The Problem with Apu, dive into the hot new anime of Spring 2018 (including robots and horse girls), dish on Pacific Rim 2, and get into the nitty-gritty of this upsetting John K situation. Plus: listener emails!

(This week’s show was voluntarily guest-edited by Liz! That’s right, I said voluntarily! How crazy is that?? Thanks, Liz!)

 

 

“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.

This episode is the special-est, you guys.
