109 | After Dinner Lounge – I Derailed You With Farts

Michael, Rob, Evan, and Pax continue this month's Lounge discussion with topics like live music, changing attitudes with age, and of course... multiverses. They talk about their own personal multiverses, but also lots of spoilery conversation about Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness.

If you haven't seen Doc Strange 2 and would like to be unspoiled, it's best if you see the movie before listening to this episode. But if you'd like to listen to the rest of the podcast and skip the bulk of the Doctor Strange discussion, the biggest spoilers are between 00:32:35 and 00:51:07, and then again from 01:13:31 to 01:32:10. Though we can't promise that something didn't sneak in outside those time frames.

108 | After Dinner Lounge – Distant Waterfall

Michael, Rob, Evan, and Pax chat about what they've been listening to and reading lately with special attention given to old comic strips, Star Trek novels, Percy Jackson vs The Kane Chronicles, and Michael's audio quality (for which we apologize). This week's musical guest is Death Cab for Cutie. No Infringement is Intended.

105 | Mystery Movie Night: Memories, Matchsticks, and Mountains
