Ep 1 - The Avengers/Geek Summer

by The Speech Bubble

Come one, come all to the first edition of The Speech Bubble podcast. The show, hosted by The Thought Bubble's own Sean Curry and his comic-inclined friend Adam Dello Buono. In this episode, the boys discuss The Avengers, the harbinger of a geek-centric summer movie season. The boys go through the set-up for the Avengers and try to figure out how a movie with that many interests can work (and where did all the aliens come from!?). There are some spoilers ahead, but if you've ever sat next to a Marvel comic book at one time, you should be okay.
