Episode 275 – Marvel’s Union Jack

7/24/2020
Seanorama’s favorite all time comic book character is Marvel’s Union Jack, a hero with a legacy, with 3 different people donning the famous union jack flag. Always severely under-represented in the comics, the character’s few appearances always straddled the line between grounded stories and the supernatural. I explain away why I was drawn to the character, the retrofitted history of the character, the treasure hunt search for all of his appearances, the blue collar aspect of the character,...

Episode 263 – What Trolls World Tour Is Really About

5/6/2020
Inspired by Aaron Virola’s wish to NOT see this movie that his daughter wanted to see, and by my own kids’ wanting to see it, we rented the film. But here is the trick: the trailers are misleading and hide what the movie is really about. If you are a musician and you hate the current wave of music forced on us by corporate media, this movie might be for you.
