The Two Screams (A solo episode)
On a very special Warporn Podcast, Gene brings us a solo episode detailing two of the most pivotal moments in his adult life and the impact they had on him."The Two Screams" is the story of inter-generational trauma, alcoholism, heavy metal and self-empowerment. Originally intended to be the opening chapter of a memoir he never quite got around to writing (yet), the story basically serves as his own superhero origin narrative.We will be back next week to overanalyze whatever Marvel property catches our eye in the next few days but for now enjoy this brief one-shot!

Breaks are Important (A solo episode)
A special episode this week with just me, Patrick, the person who usually writes these descriptions in the third person.I gave Gene the week off because he's a hard-working lad, and he deserves it. So please enjoy a solo episode about coming home from Afghanistan, and how that experience feels similar to today, as we see the end of the tunnel with Covid.Not a terribly long episode, but I hope it'll hold you over till next week when we tackle our first actual war film.It's gonna be a real goof.

Kong, Skull Island
This week we put the superheroes aside and watched Kong Skull Island, a movie about the cast of marvel fighting King Kong. What does it have to say about war? Quite a lot, surprisingly.But you'll have to wait for that, because Gene and Pat are off on several different tangents, and got banned from TikTok live for a whole day for having the, frankly, necessary conversation about whether King Kong would have a massive dong.Come join us for a lot of goofs and gaffes, and then a serious conversation about Vietnam, coming home from war, violence, and trauma.

Justice League, The Snyder Cut
I (Pat) never thought we'd see the day, after years of campaigning (often too aggressively) with the hashtag #releasethesnydercut the internet finally has its day. And it's going to take most of the day because this bad boy's four hours long.Is it any good? I guess you'll have to listen in to find out. In a rare turn, when our Podcast is shorter than the film we are discussing.Will Gene have good things to say? Or this another Iron Giant episode? Will Pat go off on a ridiculous tangent about what Superman SHOULD be? Yeah. He will definitely do that.Join us, and enjoy all the goofs and gaffes as we break down this movie turned internet meme turned back into a movie.

This week on the WarPorn podcast, we recorded in a different room! Gene lost his voice! Pat is abrasive but funny.What a wacky time we had chatting about SpiderMan Homecoming. The first of the Spiderman outings in the MCU, the 6th live-action spiderman to date. This episode focused a little less on the War and trauma aspects, and a lot more on the comedy. So we hope you come by and have a laugh as we get into some goofs and gaffes, on this latest installment of the Warporn Podcast

Join the WarPorn crew as they tackle the third in the Iron Man trilogy. Which, if you didn't know, was called 3. Which comes after 2. It's quite the naming convention.

A Flaccid Coup (Jan 6th 2021)
This week has been insane, so Gene drove up early to record a special episode of the podcast to discuss everything that's happened over the last few days.We wanted to put this out as quickly as possible, so it has minimal editing, just a raw few hours of talking things out. We hope you all get something from it, it was certainly cathartic for us.
