Main Street. Birch Street. Higgins Drive. Cobalt Lane. Our favourite hard drinking, leather jacket wearing, PTSD having, super powered private eye is back! Scott is joined by Archit Tripathi, as they discuss whether or not Jessica Jones's second outing proves to be as awesome as her first. They talk about the show's themes, new and returning characters, and it's significance for women in media. Probably would have meant a bit more if they'd spoken to any actual women about it though. Just saying.  Sign up for Neil Gibson's webinar using the code "CAPE" to get a 5% discount. Get your tickets for the Leamington Comic Con so you can check out the first live episode of Podcapers!

You thought it was over, but the rants have only just begun! It's time once again for Scott to let loose his Disney vitriol, as he tortures Mark Russell and David Molofsky with a bakers dozen of bad Disney movies. From the most sexist, to the most racist, to the most cringe inducing, Scott's not holding back this time. Although, when does he ever?

Things get weird this week on Podcapers, as Scott is joined by Kimberley Fountain and Emily Clapham, the co-creators of the strange, surreal, and hilarious webcomic The Legend of Val. They discuss the origins of the comic, where they'd like the series to go, and there's also some pretty overt Frasier references in there too. Check out The Legend of Val for yourself!

  With Black Panther just around the corner, Scott's having a talk with a massive fan of the King of Wakanda, Darian Robbins, who made so much amazing fan art of the movie that it got the attention of the filmmakers themselves! They go over his amazing work, why he likes the character to begin with, and his ideas for a Black Panther theme park attraction. Check out Darian's awesome fan art!

It's time for another history lesson with Mark Russell! This week, Mark is teaching Scott all about one of his favourite fandoms, Sonic the Hedgehog. But seeing as there are waaaaay too many games to talk about, they're going to focus of the cartoons. From the good, to the bad, to the "what were they thinking?", Scott's got a lot to learn about the blue blur.

In every generation there is a Chosen One. She alone will stand against the vampires, the demons and the forces of darkness. She is the Slayer. And Scott is a huge fan! As is AP2HYC's cosplay hero Kit Horsley, so they've decided to have a big 'ol gab fest about everyone's favourite vampire slayer (Sorry Van Helsing. Sorry Anita Blake. Sorry Simon Belmont.). They go over every season of Buffy, along with a few extras. It's more fun than an evening in a graveyard with Mr Pointy!
