This age is a very special age of An Hour With Your Ex, it’s THE AGE OF ULTRON. We invited Linus Lee to come discuss Avengers: Age of Ultron, Joss Whedon, twitter, Vision, Scarlet Witch, and twins? It’s a super sized episode of the show for a super sized film.
An Hour With Your Ex is a Chicago based podcast hosted by Mel Evans and Mark Colomb. Linus Lee is our friend who reads comic books. Avengers: Age of Ultron is movie directed and written by Joss Whedon and the good people at Audi. Our show is sponsored by the good people at Basecamp.com and we’re members of an elite force of podcasters known as The Chicago Podcast Cooperative. It’s like the JLA – only with more Improvised Star Trek and Hello, From The Magic Tavern.
We emerge from our bunker to talk about the Netflix original series “Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt” from Robert Carlock and Tina Fey. Indiana, Pinot Noir, living in the big city, and surviving trauma are all things that we talk about. Is this a worthy successor to “30 Rock” or something even better?
This week on An Hour With Your Ex we go back! It’s Back To The Future 2. Marty, Doc, and several other parts that have been recast all return. We juggle multiple timelines and infinite possibilities.
We take life 7 miles at a time! This week An Hour With Your Ex is joined by Professional Wrestler and Podcaster Colt Cabana. We all watched Furious 7 and do our best from Colt’s Studio (apartment) to make sense of Vin Diesel’s loving tribute to Paul Walker. This episode of An Hour with Your Ex is sponsored by Field Notes and The Chicago Podcast Cooperative.
A yearly tradition unlike any other. Normally we save wrestling for our Ex Hour: After Dark shows but it’s WRESTLEMANIA. All your favorite hosts stop by the show. Mel Evans and Mark Colomb talk about hosting a Mania party and why they may stop watching Raw. Second City Chicago’s Daniel Strauss checks in over skype and tells us about watching Mania in bits and pieces. Bro Jackson’s Robert Rich stops by to talk about the whole show and possible Mania plans in Dallas.
Back To The Future reference. This week we go back to a better time. It’s morning in America, right? Hold on. Were the 1980’s not as awesome as that quiz made you think they were? At least the 1950’s were awesome, right? No? There were horrible problems then? But then what are those baby boomers so excited about all the time?
Where we are going you don’t need nostalgia. Mark Colomb probably loves this movie too much. Mel Evans sort of remembers it. Lots of questions and comments about Back to the Future 2 which we didn’t watch this show.
An Hour With Your Ex is a Chicago based podcast hosted by Chicago writers and performers Mel Evans and Mark Colomb. Back To The Future is a film from 1985. Robert Zemeckis, Bob Gale, Dean Cundey, Huey Lewis, Michael J. Fox, and more. Along with Star Wars one of the most picked apart pieces of pop culture. This last bit is for SEO.
The show this week was sponsored by Cards Against Humanity. They asked us not to read an ad.
I wrote about one of modern pop culture’s great debates. This is as close to clickbait as I can do right now. I really have to thank BroJackson and Kat Gotsick for letting me write this.
“I have received several strongly worded letters about Superman, and about the dearth of female characters in later rounds. I own up to all of it. I don’t disagree with you, and I will address the criticisms as I go. Really, the point of this bracket is the same as the point of wearing a t-shirt with some goofy thing you love on it. It tells you more about me than it tells you about the comics I picked. It’s never Marvel vs. DC, or Star Wars vs. Star Trek, or whatever camp in fandom where you hang your collectible hat vs the other. It’s all about you…”
Friend and Chicago film maker Aaron Amendola and the folks at VStheUniverse asked me to film a sketch for them. Aaron wrote, sings, and performs in the video as Luigi. A ton of folks came out to Stage 773 in Chicago to help out and play in the crowd. This was a pleasure to shoot and Aaron did a great job with the edit.
I wrote about the upcoming NJPW show for BroJackson.com this works as a good brief intro to Japanese wrestling.
“The first thing people who love watching dragons and zombies on tv want to tell you about wrestling is that it isn’t real. There’s a glee to it when they say it because, hey you’re the dummy that likes wrestling in his 30’s. When they say that, show them this…”
