Episode 84: MCU and Bullet Journaling

download

Not at the same time! In preparation for Avengers: Infinity War, we’ve been catching up on all the Marvel Cinematic Universe movies (that’s everything except the X-Men and Deadpool and most Spider-Mans, we think?) we missed because of our unwillingness to watch stories about dude superheroes in the theater. We need to watch in the comfort of our home, with our cats and the ability to snark at top volume. And we also have a bunch of stuff to say about bullet journaling, so pull up a seat for this new episode!

Episode 2 Show Notes: Pop Culture Discovery and the Joy of Quitting

In our second episode, we tackle questions of pop culture acquisition and its logical counterpart: disillusion and disenchantment that leads to bitter the end of a pop culture relationship. Or something like that.

Our motto: “If you like it, you like it!”
