  1. CMD+Space #43: Option+CMD+H, with Merlin Mann

    This time Myke is joined by Merlin Mann. They have a very ‘Back to Work’-esque discussion covering Adventure Time and Comics books (naturally), but with a great discussion around what it’s like to work in large companies, living with a routine and why achieving tenure might not be all what it’s cracked up to be.

  2. The Incomparable #140: The Sublime Magicks of Exposition

    Marvel Comics’ "House of M."

    No more mutants! We discuss the 2005 Marvel Comics miniseries "House of M," in which writer Brian Michael Bendis gets to show off his love of meetings, Doctor Strange, and meetings chaired by Doctor Strange! Also, there’s a crazy "What If?" style parallel universe, approximately a billion spin-offs, and in the cruelest twist, Peter Parker is briefly allowed to be happy. And finally there’s a shocking finale that set the tone for mutant storylines up to the present day. Listen before the Scarlet Witch wishes this podcast out of existence!

  3. The Incomparable #136: We Waited 16 Years For This?

    "Star Wars: Episode 1" (part 1 of 2)

    They said it couldn’t be done! They said it shouldn’t be done! But here we are, talking about "Star Wars: Episode I — The Phantom Menace." Why are the Jedi such jerks? A little Jedi goes a long way. Also, the biggest letdown of John Siracusa’s life to date, stupid droids, good actors being boring, text versus subtext, the merits of prequels in general, and why this is a movie that makes us dream… of a better movie. Exqueeze me? (Part 1 of 2.)

    Special guests Dan Moren, Greg Knauss, John Siracusa, Monty Ashley, Serenity Caldwell, and Steve Lutz.
