    Are you a superhero (or villain) in need of a lawyer? Maybe you’re just looking for a new law firm to work for and want to meet Megan Thee Stallion so you can twerk with her in an office with a view. Well, Jennifer Walters would like to welcome you to GLK&H… she just hopes you survive the experience!

    Dear listeners, it’s long overdue, but the boys have made their way to the law firm of GLK&H to discuss and dissect the latest Marvel Phase 4 TV series on Disney+She-Hulk: Attorney At Law! From the creative mind of Jessica Gao and the directing talents of Kat Coiro, this entry into Phase 4 of the MCU follows Jessica Walters as she transitions from her life as a mild-mannered lawyer to a reluctant superhero AND mild-mannered lawyer. The boys kick the discussion off with their highlights including the cast, the overall fun of the show, the handling of internet trolls, and a certain devil’s walk of pride. After the fun stuff is over, they get to hulk out over the things that missed the mark a bit including the lack of screen time for some of the characters, pacing issues, and some of the real-world reactions to the show overall. From the drawn page to the user interface for Disney+, Jennifer Walters AKA She-Hulk has made quite the impression on the Marvel Cinematic Universe and the boys are excited to share their thoughts with you!

  • Flame On :: Episode 310 :: Enter… The Sandman

    Flame ON! is the all-gay, all-geek podcast. Tune in as we dish on the latest in pop and queer culture.

    Where do you go when you fall asleep? Some might say you see the lives you lead in other parallel universes. Some might even say that your nightmares can consume you. Morpheus, The Sandman, AKA the lord of The Dreaming, would tell you that you have entered his domain and that everything that happens there is his!

    It’s a very special episode of Flame ON! dear listeners, as our hosts have found the gateway to The Dreaming and convened to discuss a topic that is very near and dear to their hearts. Every so often a piece of pop culture arises that our hosts have been waiting for and will devour readily in order to share their opinions and this topic just so happens to be one! Adapting The Sandman, the beloved graphic novel series written by Neil Gaiman and released from January 1989 until March 1996, Netflix always had an extremely difficult task at hand. How do you take a world of such rich imagination and turn it into reality? The answer seemed to be, to throw $165 million dollars into the production! Did this work? What about the casting choices? Some fans seemed to be a bit skeptical about some of the blind casting that was done. Did the choices made by the creative team truly bring these characters to life in the best way possible? Would the surprise drop of an extra episode containing two bottle stories really generate any additional buzz for the show? Would two drag queens who love to watch spoil the surprise that Netflix had for The Sandman fans? Ok, the answer to that is yes – if you caught it in time! Find out what our hosts thought of the show and what they hope to see in the future as you listen in to this episode!
