Everybody went to go see Deadpool and so did we. We actually don’t talk about the film as much as we should because Jake had a drink beforehand and figured that tangents were the way to go. Because tangents.
March 5 & 6 sees the 12th Annual STAPLE INDEPENDENT MEDIA EXPO return to Austin, TX and so we decided to invite the mastermind behind the whole endeavor onto the show alongside STAPLE guest and friend of the show (that never isn’t weird) Gene Ha to talk about why conventions like this are so amazing alongside some truly disturbing tangents about potatoes.
Also, we’re giving away two FREE tickets to Staple. All you have to do is follow us on Twitter @PopSchlockPod and send us the picture of the finest potato you can find with the hashtag #POTATOSTAPLE and we’ll get you into the hottest indie media event in Texas.
The gang is all back together to talk about something in their usual wheelhouse; gender politics and Marvel adaptations. Using Netflix’s Jessica Jones as a focal point Jake, Alva, and Meredith discuss how the Marvel brand has cultivated itself into a unified juggernaut that seemingly understands the power they wield and how they might use that power in the future.
This week is a very special episode. Alva and Meredith had better things to do so Jake brought his fiancee Tori into the studio to talk about The Revenant and also how he is so totally sorry for dragging her to movies that she hates. Gather ’round folks, its a date night episode.
