If you’re looking for something sword-forward, we’re sorry to say that The Sword in the Stone, weirdly, might not be for you. But if you’re hoping to spend some time learning about magic and goodness and maybe, just maybe, making a few friends along the way, then Merlin, Wart, and the Dummies invite you along for a wild ride!
“We are an unusual couple you know.” – Wanda
“Oh I don’t think that was ever in question.” – Vision
Can you believe it’s been over a whole dang year and a half since us comic book nerds have had any Marvel content? Well after an unintentional but perhaps a much needed break from all things Marvel, Disney + has finally dropped the first of their interconnected MCU TV shows! So this week join Tuong La and Taylor Fleming as they discuss the mind bending, fantastical, and mysterious sitcom world of the first two episodes of Wandavision!
Featuring Jon Blair (CBC Radio’s Because News, Now More Than Ever), Nkasi Ogbonnah (Second City Mainstage, Untitled Black Sketch Project), and Jason Voulgaris (Shots Fired!, MCU Improvised). This week, the panel tries to get sponsors for the show, learns about drowning in your own piss, and names their first-ever Ultimate Loser.
A Top 5 fit for a King!
The title of King is one the highest positions of powers that people across the world have yearned and fought for (maybe because you get a fancy crown and comfy velvet robe?). For everyone else, the King meant the ruler of a kingdom who called all the shots, where you just really hoped they were a kind King and not the type that believes in you know…an ol’fashion beheading. But what makes a good King or rather interesting King? This week we’ll find out! Join Tuong La and Royal Court Jesters/ Pull the Plug’s Justin Godelie, Shannon Godelie, and Dan Foerster as they obey the royal decree of the PodCavern and all hail the Top 5 Kings list!
“Where is Optimus Prime?!”
Back in 2007 Michael Bay launched one the most beloved shows/toys from our childhood into a live-action franchise that took over the world by storm. After 4 sequels, he also ran that sucker right into the ground creating the most convoluted, explosion festish-y, and overly serious movies that were just supposed to be about transforming robots punching each other. We all were ready to write off Transformers for good until….now?! Join Tuong and Improv College’s Vinny Francois as they make like Autobots and Roll Out their thoughts on 2018’s latest Transformer’s movie – Bumblebee!
Featuring Andrew Bushell (Second City Mainstage, Christmas Catch), Jeff Clark (Clark-Sauce), and Hailey Masterson (MCU Improvised). In our first episode of 2021, the panel discusses how they spent their holidays, trading tickles for oral, and the best way to measure the size of a dinosaur’s erection.
Angus and Sal have Parker McKennly (Stefan Spec, Some Good Friends) a “Travel Influencer ” on to figure out what exactly that is. Have Angus and Sal unwittingly brought the most dangerous and entitled guest on the show?
Buckle up, because the Dummies are on the edge of their seats this week as they watch Cruella de Vil chase 101 Dalmatians across the English countryside. And don’t worry, cat fanatics – the Dummies have got lots of love for the REAL hero of the story, Sargeant Tibbs!
“Is All This Living Really Worth Dying For?”
It’s the first episode of 2021 in the PodCavern and we are starting things off by talking about some deep life sh*t all wrapped in the colorful world of Pixar! This week, join Tuong and special guest Kadi Diop (YA! Podcast) as they answer life’s important questions such as: “What does it mean to have a soul?”, “Why are epsom salts good for the body?” and “Would you play a Kanye West Nintendo game?”. All this and more as we get chatty about Pixar’s animated jazz-tastical film – Soul!
At least we had video games in 2020.
It is not breaking any new ground to say 2020 was a dumpster fire. In that raging dumpster fire though, there was a small little ray of hope and escapism in the name of …video games! It is not hyperbole to say that video games provided that much needed comfort in these dark times to the entire world. And while 2020 brought out the worst in gamers (we’re looking at you The Last of Us 2/Cyberpunk entitled knuckleheads), it also brought out some real fantastic game experiences that we were able to get completely immersed in. It gave us a way to connect with family/friends digitally, in a world where we couldn’t physically see each other. So join Tuong La and ‘Sus Gamers’ Angus MacDonald, Ethan Howieson, and Matthew Whalley as they celebrate the best games of 2020!
