2.1: A ManNic Kind Of Different!
History has shown us that sequels aren’t usually as good as their predecessors and usually dip in quality and substance, but now we’re here to break that pattern!
Like any good second season The ManNic Podcast Season Two is shaking things up this time round. Instead of choosing one single subject for each episode e.g. Star Trek, The MCEU or the many failures of DC. This time round we are going to be more relaxed and slightly less structured.
We will still be doing special edition episodes around special events such as Christmas or Halloween. But hopefully this way we will have more freedom to be our ”wonderful and not at all strange” selves while still being able to cover a whole array of topics.
As well as having shiny new channel art we have also introduced some new segments to hopefully give some structure to what could potentially be a fairly manic season.
The first of our new segments is The Character Battles each week we will pull two random characters from a hat and discuss who would win in a fight to the death!!
In the second new segment we look ahead to the eventual introduction of The X-Men to the MCU and attempt to cast a member of the team each week, This week we’re starting with Charles Xavier.
If you head over to our twitter @Themannic right now you’ll be able to take part in the companion poll where you can get your say on who should take over the mantle of Professor X!
You can also check out the boys @Tobiasnicholls & @Mrmandypants if you so wish!
And don’t forget to check out Liam’s Youtube and Twitch as well.
Thank you for supporting The ManNic Podcast so far, we really appreciate it!
So, Sit back, relax, maybe pour yourselves a cup or three of mead as we jump head first into Season Two.
