Episode 7 - Buy the Ticket, Take the Ride

Doug and Eric devote an episode to the flurry of announcements and activity from the Marvel Cinematic Universe, with a dash of Justice League and America Gods thrown in for good measure.

Horizon Zero Dawn compared to Breath of the Wild Reactions on the latest Justice League and Spider-man trailers. Marvel's Inhumans & Iron Fist, and their production team disparity. AMERICAN GODS ARE COMING, Dane Cook is still a piece of shit.
