The Fellowship is pleased to present a new Casting Call, this time for an Indiana Jones film serial based in 1939 (or thereabouts). It's pretty much what the films were based on anyway, right? And it's our oldest casting call yet, so finding actors turned out to be a fun challenge. Plus our usual tangents galore and our comics picks of the week.

The Fellowship is pleased to present more of our Retro Month, where we re-imagine topics from our first year of podcasting. This week we're talking about movies that should have gotten a sequel. This is a tricky one (in more ways than one), but we pulled some interesting ideas out for it (we think). Plus our usual tangents galore and our comics picks of the week.

The Fellowship is pleased to present more of our Retro Month, where we re-imagine topics from our first year of podcasting. This week we're giving some comics characters their own series.

The Fellowship regrets to announce that we do not have a new episode for you this week. No catastrophes or anything, just some irreconcilable scheduling stuff. We'll be back next week with more of our usual silly behavior. If you have a moment, though, check out our website and our weekly picks, and maybe grab a rerun episode to listen to. And if we don't say it enough, thank you for listening and hanging out with us 🙂   Announcements: We found a way to do our monthly meetups - on Discord! Come hang out with us in the voice channel on the 4th Saturday of the month; details...

The Fellowship is pleased to present the first week of our Retro Month, where we re-imagine topics from our first year of podcasting. This week we're revisiting questionable movies that we want to remake. Remakes are not our favorite thing, but man, do some of these need it.

The Fellowship is pleased to present our discussion of the Marvel character Moon Knight. He's an interesting character who has gotten some questionable treatment (and almost no continuity) over the years, and now he's getting a series with Oscar Isaac. Plus our usual tangents galore and our comics picks of the week.

The Fellowship is pleased to present our discussion of "the year comics went dark," focusing on 1986's Watchmen and The Dark Knight Returns. These two books (maybe singlehandedly) created a seismic shift in superhero stories for years to come. Plus our usual tangents galore and our comics picks of the week.

The Fellowship is pleased to present our discussion of the 1981 classic Raiders of the Lost Ark, where we're joined by podcaster and old pal Eddie Medina. This is a popular series of films, and also we're getting a new one next year? It seemed like a good time to chat about it. Plus our usual tangents galore and our comics picks of the week.
