MULTIMEDIOCRITY #9 – “A Spider-Sort of Homecoming”

A STATE-LINES.COM Podcast hosted by Shawn Talley and Matthew Hevey

[featuring Shane Domrongchai]

MULTIMEDIOCRITY: The Broadcast! – A Spider-Sort of Homecoming

// OR: “We larb you, Spider-Man.” //

On this installment of MULTIMEDIOCRITY, Doofin and Talley deep dive into the latest entry to Marvel’s shared cinematic universe, SPIDER-MAN: Homecoming. They gush over the great many things the picture got right, look back to the previous franchises and their failings, and look forward to where Marvel Studios and Sony might be going with the character from here. On the back half, they’re joined by a mutual friend and Spider-fan, the spectacular Shane Domrongchai, to talk—get this—all of that over again, but with a bit more enthusiasm. Following their collective fawning over the film, the gang discusses the highs and lows of the amazing wall crawler’s convoluted comic history and those of the constantly-retconning comic book medium. Episode nine, largely a single-topic show, is heard exclusively on the State Lines Network!
