Captain Marvel (2019) - Marvel Movie Club part 22
We're skipping ahead in our Marvel Cinematic Universe to the most recent (as of this recording) Marvel movie to be released- Captain Marvel. This is a Spoiler-filled review as usual, so if you haven't watched the movie, well you should go ahead and do that before watching.  Rachel and Peter join forces again to talk about this movie. The first movie in this MCU to feature a woman-led story.  Please email us at :

Thor (2011) - Marvel Movie Club #4
Rachel and Peter talk about Thor, the movie from 2011. Days after Osama Bin Laden was killed, we get one of two major Marvel movies released in the simpler times of 2011.

Iron Man 2 - MCU pt. 3
Latest episode of Minneapolis Pete- Rachael and I talk about Iron Man 2 from 2010. Why is there a pantsuit and Bill O'Reilly in the same scene? Why does Samuel L. Jackson talk about the riddle of Iron Man's heart? Your media is controlled and disseminated and distilled. You have been warned. Pete plays and coaches roller derby. He reads a lot of comic books and plays with his dog. You can reach him at: because he doesn't use twitter. Rachel is on many podcasts of the role playing variety. She is Riker and Data and Janeway and Deanna Troi combined into one. You can reach her : @imafancylady on the twitter machine. Check out our sponsor:
