On this week's pod there is... no movie talk. Not sure why, we had Shang Chi to talk about, but we ended up sharing Jads' skin care knowledge that he has gained after a summer of research and some weirdly in-depth conversation about how school really messes you up lol. Make sure to follow us on Insta for the pics we mention in this ep and send in your own thoughts on anything we discussed @thenewplex

It's such a lovely day, we thought we'd do the pod al fresco - so get ready for some vitamin D and soothing nature sounds (seagulls fighting/copulating). Listen as the glaring heat and direct sunlight (silly us) makes it nearly impossible for Jads to formulate any sort of coherent arguments as we discuss all things Loki, the brand new Disney+ series. The multiverse is here!! Also, this week's Nerdlines.

We're "reviewing" Zack Snyder's newest Netflix film Army of the Dead this week, but not before we ponder divine intervention, Urban Outfitters, and Charlie's tramlines. Also, why haven't Disney invented a real lightsaber yet? Plus this week's Nerdlines.

This is it guys. After 4 years of Jads having some variety of DC rant every single episode, the end is finally here. With the release of Zack Snyder's 4-hour epic version of Justice League, the era of Jads rants comes to an end. But after all the hype, did the team enjoy the film? Also this week: getting bullied by teachers in primary school, and bullying dinner ladies in primary school.

This week we try and get into the mind of a denim-clad Christopher Nolan and wonder what his vision was for Batman and ask, regardless of the amount of denim, were these films ever really 'grounded', as proponents claim. Plus, we nerd out over WandaVision and ask: will this show have a happy ending?

Welcome back to the Chillcast, where this week low-energy Jads and the gang are sharing their favourite moments from WandaVision so far & looking forward to where this crazy train is stopping next. Plus, this week's super-releaxed version of the Nerdlines. Episode best enjoyed with a glass of wine, if you're so inclined.

Happy New Year! We're back after our Xmas hols and we've got lots to catch up on. Why does Tenet sound so shit? Did you even know Wonder Woman 1984 was out in the UK? What's happening with Ray Fisher's Cyborg in DC's Flashpoint? Plus mini reviews of Cyberpunk, Mando, and more. Also, Jads tells us he's over the DCEU - do we believe him?

Strap yourselves in. There are a lot of headlines to get through, and a little over an hour to do it in. Jads must try his absolute best not to go on tangents, and JOPO and Charles are on hand to provide the quickfire reactions. Ok. Deep breath, here we go...

Let me level with you: It's been a slow news week in the nerd culture world, and we were worried we'd have nothing to talk about in this ep - so we decided to wing it. In the event, we had *so* much to talk about it took us 20 mins to get onto the Nerdlines... So this week we're talking the CW/Arrowverse of DC TV shows, James Gunn & John Cena's upcoming Peacemaker show, Disney making R-rated content, Undertaker&...

We've returned to lockdown, so this week the pod is being recorded from home (just like old times). Please forgive the sound of creaky doors, ice cream vans, or the industrial woodcutter as we navigate our new setup - but the takes are hot and the memes are hotter, don't you worry. This week: who will replace (if anyone) Johnny Depp as Grindelwald? Are we loving Spider Man: Miles Morales? And will we ever bag that elusive, ...
