Avengers: Endgame finishes the story begun in last year’s Infinity War and represents the culmination of all the stories begun 11 years ago with Iron Man. We were surprised how much we liked Infinity War. How does the direct sequel fare?

It’s finally episode 50! We celebrate by seeing how many of our old episodes we can remember just by looking at the titles – it’s like a clip show of the mind! Actual clip shows are way too much work to put together. And lest you think we’re just singing ourselves this episode, we end by giving back with podcasting advice from people who are obviously experts at it by now… right?
We embark on a journey through the Harry Potter film series which Maggie grew up with but Matt has never seen (nor has he read the books).

We’re not quite ready for our 50th episode. Instead, we bring you a short bonus episode from the distant past. This was our audio test just before we recorded episode 1 of the podcast way back in December 2016 – we were all so much younger then! It’s basically just a condensed version of what we normally do just with even less direction.
Our favorite movies series continues with Matt’s favorite film: The Prestige.
