Contra Mundum: Episode 12 – The Super Geeks Review the 2017 Super Hero Movies (Part 1)

Hello all. I had planned to get this out before the end of the year, but I overestimated the amount of time I would have to myself while hanging out with The Boyfriend and his five brothers over the Christmas season.

But it’s still January, and it’s close enough to 2017 that this podcast still makes sense.

In this one, I unite with my Super Geek friend Kevin McHugh to review the 2017 super hero movies. We had a lot of fun recording this episode and the next one. The next episode will be far more full of disagreement than this one, but this one is still good.

I hope you all enjoyed this episode. Next week, we return to talk about the last few super hero movies from 2017.

On a related note, I don’t know about you, but I know I’m really looking forward to 2018’s super hero movies, Especially Black Panther and Infinity War. I’m sure I’ll be doing a review of my own for both of them either here or on Letterboxd (which, if you want to follow me there, click here).


Contra Mundum: Episode 9 – The Super Geeks Unite! (Part 2)

Soooo, I finally took the time to edit that second episode of the Super Geeks podcast.

I’ll wait for your applause.

*dodges tomatoes*

I know it’s been a while. Fair warning, you should think about this episode as something of a time capsule. We recorded this originally in late May, and then the first episode came out in June. And now it’s November, so most of the movies for the trailers we talked about in this episode are out already.

So you’ll get to see if we were right in our assumptions about them. Enjoy!

So, this was a lot of fun to record. I hope you guys liked it as much as I did.

And for those of you who can’t get enough of the Super Geeks, Kevin will be back again in early December after Justice League comes out to talk about the 2017 super hero movies.

Assuming nothing crazy happens school-wise, I’ll be seeing you all next week with a new episode. This time about history!

Contra Mundum: Episode 8 – The Super Geeks Unite! (Part 1)


Hey guys, I know I’ve been a bit inconsistent in the posting lately. Sorry. It’s summer and I keep spending too much time with The Boyfriend. I know. I’m a monster.


It’s podcast time again, and the next two are probably my favorite that I’ve ever done. This was a two hour superhero spectacular. But you only get part one right now.

Editing is hard, y’all.

I had a ton of fun with my friend Kevin McHugh talking about the MCU and the DCCU. We talked about our favorite superhero movies and our least favorite ones.

Just so you know, this was recorded a few weeks ago, so that’s why we didn’t talk about Wonder Woman (which was AWESOME, btw).


I hope you guys enjoyed it. It was fun, and the next part of the episode is just as fun. The second one is about the trailers for the newest movies. So come back next week for that!

Here’s the shorter preview if you’d like to take a short listen before watching the full video:

P.S. What did you think of the record scratch sound versus the beeping noise in between the cuts of the preview?
