Episode 21: 'Guardians of the Galaxy'

Welcome to episode 2-1 of ze podcast! This week, J&J indulge their nerdy bits in a sweeping, snarky new superhero universe, where aliens are humanoid (well, most; I am Groot), and the small-time losers have to save the day. You guessed it, or read the title; today they review film #49201 (I think?), 'Guardians of the Galaxy', and their opinions are not as supernova-glowing as you might expect.

Meanwhile, Jon will never find that classy album he talks about in the first ten minutes. Joel has an experiment to try on you, and it involves 450 volts of electricity. Joel talks about tortillas, and Jon talks about the bike days. And death, who can forget boring old death? It's episode 21, fo sho!
