Happy belated holidays from Earth Station MCU, as we bring you the mid-season finale of Agents of SHIELD! John and Jen discuss the new Spidey trailer, "Planet Hulk" elements in Thor: Ragnarok, and upcoming toys for Guardians of the Galaxy. Jen dons her cultural studies hat and asks if theme of stealing that runs throughout this episode has a racial undertone or not, because that's what happens when you have four whole weeks of not having to read literary criticism. Thank you all for your patience as we get back up to speed!

Hello Marvel Universe! Sorry for the delay -- we were stuck in the Dark Dimension for a couple months there, but this nice robot lady got us out, and I'm sure everything will be fine. I mean, it's not like she's Ultron....right? Um...guys?
In this episode, John and Jen review "The Good Samaritan", in which we get a glimpse at how Robbie met the Ghost Rider spirit, and "Deals With Our Devils," which...is pretty much what it says on the tin. In more ways than one.

John and Jen take a break from the usual Agents of SHIELD reviews to check out the latest MCU cinematic offering - Doctor Strange! With mind-blowing special effects and one of the most talented casts we've seen in the MCU, expectations were high for the Sorceror Supreme. Who are we to judge? We're Earth Station MCU, and we've come to bargain!

In this double episode of Earth Station MCU, John and Jen review both "Let Me Stand Next to Your Fire" and "Lockout". But before that, there's man-tears falling over the announcement of all female directors for season two of Jessica Jones, new casting for Defenders and Punisher, as well as confirmations from Kevin Feige on who will be in Infinity War, the possibility of future crossovers. All this and Halloween cosplay fun on this episode of Earth Station MCU!

In this episode of Earth Station MCU, John and Jen recap all the news from New York Comic Con, including all the latest about Marvel's Netflix series. Sigourney Weaver will plan Defenders' big bad...but who will that be? Kevin Feige weighs in on Blade rumors, and Agent Carter returns...but not the way we were hoping. All this and a nail-biter of a SHIELD episode....even without Carrot Top!

Sweet Christmas! In this episode, John and Jen review the long-awaited third entry into the Netflix side of the MCU, with season one of Luke Cage. The series that broke the internet, crashing Netflix for several hours the day after it was released, earned widespread acclaim not only from geek media but also from sources as varied as the Wall Street Journal to the Christian Science Monitor, and Ebony to The Atlantic. Featuring a large cast, three different major villains, and causing tears of outrage from internet trolls who protested the lack of racial diversity (...seriously?!), Luke Cage is among the MCU's most talked-about heroes. Tune in to hear John and Jen dissect the "bulletproof black man," revealing easter eggs, connections to the MCU, and how it stacks up against the rest of Marvel's properties.

Hello Marvel Universe!
John and Jen are back from hiatus, and ready to review the first episode of Agents of SHIELD - "The Ghost". It's gonna be YUGE, simply YUGE! With the addition of Robbie/Ghost Rider, as well as Dr. Radcliffe becoming a main-cast character, we have a lot of cool stuff coming up this season. And can we talk about those effects? Did they blow the whole season's budget on this episode? All this, and casting news on Ragnorok, the Russos on the lack of death in Civil War, Luke Cage, and some unconfirmed but very interesting rumors about Red Skull and Punisher...
On a scale of one to five flaming skulls, one being terrible and five being Best Flaming Skull Ever, how would you rate this episode? Let us know at email@example.com, and rate us on Podbean, iTunes, or wherever fine podcasts are found.

Hello Marvel Universe!
We're back from summer hiatus, but before we give you our review of the first episode of the new season, here's a "vintage" episode left over from the end of last season. Recap the best and the worst of the end of last season before diving into a whole new post-Sokovia world in our next episode! All this and....the latest news as of May. Hey. It's bespoke and vintage! You'll love it.

FINALLY! At long last, John and Jen share their thoughts on Civil War, Baron Zima (admit it, he's kind of watered down and 80s as villains go), and how the Sokovia Accords will impact the larger MCU. Are we #teamironman, #teamcap, or #teamunderoos?
