For this episode we brought in outside X-Perts Kait and Renata of the podcast Worst Bestellers. There might be some spoilers for the plot of the new movie X-Men: Apocalypse, but it will be hard to find them in our peripatetic conversation about all things X. We promise you might not come out of it feeling more confused about the franchise!
