Black Panther Wakanda Forever: Film Critics and Movement Organizers Discuss

From the sound of Mayan spoken in a Marvel movie, to the beauty of wearing a mask to breathe, Ryan Coogler’s new Black Panther movie, Wakanda Forever has a lot to say.

And so does my panel of experts:

Moji Alawode-El, Feminist Buzzkills Podcast https://www.aafront.org/fbklive/

Marcus Pinn,  Zebras in America podcast / Pinnland Empire film blog http://www.pinnlandempire.com/

Felicia Perez, Head of Memes at TaskForce.US https://www.feliciaperez.com/

PS there is an audio glitch when Elana is explaining Riri Williams. Elana is trying to say that in the comics the character Riri Williams was specifically designed to be a superhero.

Those Two Geeks Episode 193: Saying Farewell To Kevin Conroy

The two geeks talk about their favourite episodes of Batman: The Animated Series in the wake of Kevin Conroy’s passing.

As always, Alex and Joe can be found on Twitter respectively @karcossa and @FirstRonin4 if you feel the need to tell them they’re wrong individually, or @those2geeks if you want to yell at them together on Twitter, or by email at ItsThose2Geeks@gmail.com.

Those Two Geeks Episode 192: We Actually Talk Comics With Matthew Klein!

The two geeks finally talk comics with Matthew Klein, author of the Crashing comic book from IDW. For more than a solid hour, we talk about the publishing industry, comics (specifically Matthew’s comic) and then leave room at the end for a liiiittle wrestling talk. But most of the two hour extravaganza is comics (which surprised us, too). This episode was recorded prior to the passing of Kevin Conroy, and so obviously we don’t talk about his impact on the Batman mythos this week.

Matthew can be found on Twitter @matthewklein316.

Those Two Geeks Episode 191: The Ghost Who Walks?

The two geeks didn’t get a chance to record together this week, so Alex goes off on a semi planned tangent about the Phantom.

The Women of Marvel podcast returns today

Women of Marvel

Marvel Entertainment’s original podcast series Women of Marvel returns for an all-new season! In the weekly series, hosts Ellie Pyle, Angélique Roché, and Judy Stephens spotlight women storytellers, fans, and industry experts in insightful conversations with people of all backgrounds to show how they make a powerful and positive impact on our stories.

The theme of the Winter 2022 season, “The Super Power of Mentorship,” focuses on the relationships behind and between accomplished heroes in the Marvel Universe and the mentors, teachers, and inspirations that helped guide and encourage them. Super Heroes are only so powerful; they don’t learn how to be heroes alone. Fans can tune-in to hear how some of their favorite heroes have benefited from and been shaped by their super powered mentors.

Through conversations with artists, writers, creators, and some of our very own Women of Marvel, the season explores relationships between fan-favorite characters including Carol Danvers and Kamala Khan, Storm and Kitty Pryde, and Janet and Nadia Van Dyne. The episodes will also feature current and former Marvel staff to share their advice and experiences with mentorship during their career.

This season features an exciting lineup of guests including comic writers Kelly Thompson, Jordan Ifueko, Sam Maggs; editors Alanna Smith, Robyn Belt, and more!

The 8-episode series is produced by Isabel Robertson, Kara McGuirk, Angélique Roche, Judy Stephens, Ellie Pyle, and executive produced by Jill Du Boff.  You can listen to new episodes of Women of Marvel every Thursday on the SXM AppApple PodcastsStitcherSpotify, or wherever you listen to podcasts.

Those Two Geeks Episode 190: We Won’t Talk About The Haslab. The Sky Is Green.

The two geeks weren’t going to talk about the Engine of Vengeance Haslab… but they do. And then collecting in general.

Those Two Geeks Episode 189: THAT End Credits Scene

The two geeks talk about the end credits scene from Black Adam that has been leaked, but oddly not the movie itself as neither of these two have seen it yet. And then inevitably end up talking about toys (again).

Deep Space Dive: A Deep Space 9 pod w/ NY State Senator Gustavo Rivera

From Bajor to the Bronx we’re joined by State Senator Gustavo Rivera, a tried and true Trekkie. Serving in the New York Senate since 2010, Gustavo has beaten the odds, facing down real world Kai Winns, negotiating soil reclamator disputes and championing New York’s Medicare for All bill.

We talk about communities, real and fictional alike, pulling through the wreckage of colonialism. Especially Puerto Rico and Bajor.

Elana takes full responsibility for the really sloppy photoshop images. 

Those Two Geeks Episode 188: Henry Cavil and Crowdfunding Toys

The two geeks talk about Henry Cavil as Superman, and then inevitably end up talking about toys. Specifically Eternia from Mattel and the Engine of Vengeance from Hasbro.

As always, Alex and Joe can be found on Twitter respectively @karcossa and @FirstRonin4 if you feel the need to tell them they’re wrong individually, or @those2geeks if you want to yell at them together on Twitter, or by email at ItsThose2Geeks@gmail.com.
