Julian, Daniel, and Jeremy sit down to discuss what turned out to be a VERY busy week in nerdy news. It all started with the Captain Marvel teaser and only got more exciting as the news kept rolling in. The Joaquin Phoenix Joker reveal would have been enough but on top of that there was also an interview with Disney CEO, Bob Iger, that had him spilling the beans on the future of the MCU and Star Wars, as well as the James Gunn firing. Oh and did we mention that Emmy awards winners were announced, and that there’s a live action Avatar: The Last Air Bender in the works at Netflix? Yea, that happened too! All that and so much more on this week’s Tower of Babble Podcast!

NOTE: There were technical difficulties during this week’s recording that weren’t discovered until after the show was recorded. I’ve done my best to clean it up but unfortunately the audio still doesn’t sound great. I apologize for the inconvenience and I promise we will be returning to our regular high fidelity audio next week.
