Episode 273 - Jamie Yates talks MCU Phase 4, Wanda/Vision, and massive TV budgets
This week the boys welcome back a true Mind Gap veteran the delightful Jamie Yates. Jamie is also the star of the penultimate episode of the critically acclaimed lockdown web series The Quarantine Files. She describes the unique experience of playing 5 characters while taking direction remotely on 2 computers and being filmed on a single iPhone. The meat and potatoes of this episode is Phase 4 of the MCU! It’s been a while since the dorks really tucked into this topic so Jamie kicks things off with hot takes on the Wanda/Vision series set to come out soon on Disney+. All of the Marvel Cinematic Universe shows and movies coming up in the next few years get a bit of time in the conversational sun. The talk of superheroes eventually leads to the rise of superhero sized budgets that TV shows are currently getting. With an upcoming Lord of the Rings series estimated to have a budget nearing $1 billion and many shows, including the upcoming Marvel shows, having $25 million per episode, Justin ponders if this is ultimately damaging to smaller budget productions. The show ends with a thrilling matchup in the throw-down between Scarlet Witch and Loki. While it starts out seemingly over before it began, the debate really makes this one a lot closer than any of the panel members thought it would be.

Episode 22 - Piracy in the Digital Age with Jamie Yates
Actor, comedian, writer, and singer Jamie “Peapod Doodle Stink” Yates joins Justin and Doug to discuss the idea of piracy and copyrights in the digital age. Is it considered piracy if you download a picture from Google Images and view at your leisure on your computer? Is it stealing if you rip a song off YouTube and add it to your phone? If your grandmother records all the I Love Lucy episodes onto VHS tapes and gifts them on your birthday, is she a criminal? Our three heroes wade into the morally gray area to try to figure out where the line is when it comes to piracy. Things are wrapped up with a throw-down between Cyclops vs. Mr. Fantastic.
