Today on the podcast Arune Singh joins me again to begin our trek through the Iron Man franchise in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

How well does a superhero movie from 2008 hold up in 2017? Where did they go right and wrong? How did Marvel turn a B-level hero into the launchpad of the biggest film franchise in history not named Star Wars?

The themes of the movie also led us into a talk about race and how representation in comics is a constant struggle, and why it’s important.

I had the absolute pleasure of having Arpon Basu on the podcast to talk about his new venture to bring The Athletic, the prominent subscription sports journalism service, to Montreal this September, and we got into a wide range of topics.

From what kind of content The Athletic MTL will be, to the challenges it faces in defining itself in both languages, to how the Montreal Canadiens have changed and what to expect next season, to the tragedy in Charlottesville that has shown how serious the Neo-Nazi threat is right now in North America.

Also we talked a little Netflix to bring it back to Ice Level days. We went off on tangents about Subban, Weber, Plekanec, and Pacioretty, and ended up chatting for nearly two hours. Enjoy!

Hey uh… Sorry? Turns out it’s been a crazy two months what with the playoffs and a litany of other complications between us, and it’s taken until now to get back together and finish off the Paul Walker era of Fast and the Furious with Arune Singh.

We promise though, that we’ll be back at it more consistently from here on out, things have calmed down for us both and we’re ready to go.

For now, please enjoy the new podcast on Furious 6 and Furious 7!

This week on the podcast Arune Singh and I are continuing our trip through the Fast and Furious franchise with Fast Five, arguably the peak of the series. The Rock joins the cast as every movie brings it’s best characters into a team up heist film that leaves no ridiculous stunt undone.

Buckle in and listen as we talk about what we like and don’t like about this movie.

On the podcast this week Arune Singh is back on with me to talk about the first two movies in the Fast and Furious franchise, but before we got into that we needed to talk about P.K. Subban, his personal success, and the perception of him around the NHL.

With the hockey stuff out of the way, we got into two movies from the early 2000’s that frankly, aren’t very good, but spawned a powerhouse franchise. What about them was so special that people were compelled to keep coming back?
