Welcome back Firesiders! This isn’t the first time Loki changed our plans, but here we are again. After that explosive 4th episode we thought we should recap and review episodes 3 and 4 from the Loki Disney+ series. Join Mendte and Mashko as they talk about the biggest moments from Loki so far and what it means for the MCU moving forward. How did our theories play out? Who’s behind the Time Keepers? will we ever see Mobius on a Jet-ski? What did we thinking of the cameo and twists? And so much more. It’s starting to look like Loki is burdened with the most glorious purpose of all… creating the Multiverse. Welcome to Fireside Varients.
The dynamic duo of Maurer and Mashko are here to save your comic related current events for the week. While Mendte is battling Sandman at the beach, our tenacious twosome brings some of the latest comic book news to you. This week Moon Knight is focused on a new mission. Night falls again between Batman and Azrael. Spawn gets even more gory and we finish things off by talking about Boba Fett’s starship and the fantastic Shang-Chi and the Legends of the Ten Rings new trailer. All these stories and more, here on Fireside Chats.
Welcome back Fireside Faithful! As the world starts to open back up, the thing I think most of us over here are the most excited about is the weekly trip to the movies.

Join Mendte, Maurer, and Mashko as they talk about what and when is coming to a theater near you. From Black Widow to Venom, Shang-Chi to No Way Home - there is a lot to be excited by. So pop some popcorn and let’s get into this. Welcome to Fireside. See you at the movies.
