Episode 6: The Stoltz
In this episode the guys talk a little about properties they enjoy outside of the realm of comics and we learn Scott loves to talk about many shows and movies from the 80's without actually ever seeing anything from the 80's. Harry Potter, Star Trek, Chris Evans sci-fi films, cartoons, Lord of The Rings and much more is discussed. The guys seem to start off slow and may actually be asleep at the start of the show, but things really turn around thanks to the Stoltz.
