The Dog Days of Summer are here and with all that slobbery heat comes the doldrums of slow news. Everyone’s taking off work and producing nothing noteworthy in the cultural Zeitgeist, so it’s up to the Boys to find some meaning in their every day interactions with old people. Why old people, you ask. You’d have to ask them, since they started it. What is it about the increasing passing of time that makes one inclined to start conversations with strangers, especially in this age of knives and guns and YouTube? Henry and John hope to find out. And if you want to rate this episode on Rotten Tomatoes, well, I hope you bought a ticket. Cause that’s their new policy. We’ll talk about it. IT’S THE SUMMER OF DOGS!

It’s a weird week. There’s a lot of weird feelings going around. This episode is weird. There’s a lot happening in the world that makes us feel helpless and hopeless and in these dark, dark times we turn to the crisp, refreshing taste of Coke Zero Sugar™. And maybe it’s the caffeine, but the ZC boys are punchy and fast-talkin’. They blaze through all their prepared content in mere minutes and then flounder for the rest of the episode. Also they sing more than once. So. Be warned. This one is for you, unnamed podcast spider. #NameThatSpider. IT’S ZERO CREDIT(S)!
THE FOLLOWING EPISODE IS NOTHING BUT SPOILERS FOR THE HIT MOVIE AVENGERS ENDGAME. DON’T EVEN START PLAYING IT UNTIL YOU HAVE SEEN SAID MOVIE IN ITS ENTIRETY.
11 years. 22 movies. It all comes down to this. The culmination of the grand Marvel Cinematic Universe experiment arrives like destiny and, surprising no one, the boys have a lot to say about it. In this surprisingly divisive Supplemental Reading, John and Henry duke it out over the deeper themes of the movie. We can’t get into it here, on the off chance that someone seems this before they see the movie somehow, but let’s just say after all this time, it’s finally here. The Andgame. Good job, Endvengers. You really Anded it.
