John is back from having Covid this week and boy is his mind just the Swiss-est of cheeses. Can he hang in there for our first inaugural 10-hour Marathon Episode? Probably not. The phones are still ringing folks, and they’ll keep ringing till the end of time. There’s nothing that can be done for them. We also have the latest hot takes on Joker 2: More Joker as well as whatever the heck John is on about when he starts ranting about Danny Elfman.
Now that the bar’s back to standards it’s time to discuss video games. E3 is this weekend/next week and the ZC boys are excited to dedicate an entire episode to video games. But that’s next week. This week, it’s only half video games, as everyone prepares for the exciting news that our developer lords are preparing to hype to levels only audible to some breeds of dog. We’ve got it all: Spiderman, Vampyr, whatever Nintendo’s bringing. You name it. When we finally feel comfortable that half of the audience has tuned out for greener pastures, Henry covers some distressing music news. Murdoc, bassist and troublemaker of The Gorillaz, is in jail, a fact that completely confuses John. Yeah, it’s troubling times for The Gorillaz, but Ace from the Powerpuff Girls is here to at least stand in for the mean time. It’s a confusing time for all involved, but Henry’s here to explain it all away for you in the inaugural segment Meme Minute. Have a question about a Meme? Hopefully it’s the meme Henry decided to cover this week. If it is, all your answers are here. If it’s not, drop a line @ZCPCWHJ on twitter or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org and he’ll get it to it eventually. Rockstar Games suck.
*EVERY SECOND OF THIS PODCAST IS A SPOILER. EVEN THE MUSIC. EVEN THE SILENCE. YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED*
10 years. 18 movies. Dozens of named characters. All leading up to this. The Supplemental Reading for Marvel’s Avengers Infinity War. The dives are deep and the fascination with the choices made in this film run deeper. It’s hard to describe what John and Henry discuss without spoilers, but let’s just say they discuss some of the deeper themes of the movie. What are those themes? We can’t rightly say. There’s a chance someone who didn’t see the movie sees this. So. You’ll have to listen. After you see the movie.
