A day late/a buck short
Dan's writing/a report
This week's The Main Damie Podcast is coming to you on a Friday rather than our usual Thursday and short one member. Yet, we still wind up talking for over an hour. It's amazing how that works.
We stumble out of the gate when Mark tries to bring up a conversation that Anthony just can't continue, but then that transitions to an in-depth conversation on Mark's thoughts regarding the new Spider-Man game for Playstation 4. It's a little messy, but this is what we call perseverance, folks.
From there, we transition to an even more clickable topic: Marvel officially released the first full-length trailer for Captain Marvel starring Brie Larson. This gives Mark the opportunity to absolutely drag everyone that isn't the 2016 Best Actress Winner and misremember how well Suicide Squad did, box office-wise.
We end the episode on a personal note. Earlier this week, Anthony did a deep-dive on offthemark.blogspot.com, Mark's precursor to his time on The Main Damie. In the same spirit of They Called This a Movie's Trivia Game, Anthony quizzes Mark on some details regarding his old blog.

Guess who's back. Back again.
While we've been off on other adventures, we sort of took the summer off for The Main Damie Podcast. With the fall looming and a new school year off and running, we decided it's time to give The Main Damie Podcast a soft reboot.
This episode sees us revisit the past few months of movies, talking about the ones we liked and the ones we missed. We also look ahead at the movies and video games that we're looking forward to.
From there, we take some moments to talk about the next coming months of the site. We announce the plans to turn this into a more consistent podcast, releasing every other week, alternating with our other show, They Called This a Movie. We also discuss our future plans for the upcoming 31 Days of Horror, Stranger Damies, and our 3rd Annual Extra Life Marathon.

It's the day after Memorial Day. You're probably at work; you're probably hungover. Avoid your responsibilities by strapping in for a brand-new episode of The Main Damie Podcast.
This episode kicks off with some talk about what we've been up to for the past few weeks. We all went to Vegas for our good friend's wedding, so we spend some time talking about that in the preamble before we get into the topics at hand.
We start with Video Game Corner, where Mark lets Anthony and Dan in on what will probably be going down at E3 this year. Will Microsoft unveil a new Halo? Are we going to get an N64 Classic in time for the holiday season? Our guess is as good as yours. That's how that saying goes, right?
Speaking of wild speculation, none of us saw Solo: A Star Wars Story, but listen to us ramble about why we think it didn't break box office records this weekend. Racism? Fatigue? An oversexed populace? It could literally be anything.
Finally, we finish off this episode with a preview of something that's upcoming for the website. Back in the early days of the website, we had a podcast show "They Called This a Movie", where we watched a movie (usually a bad one) and talked about it. Some of our best shows came out of this idea (and our sign-off is a direct reference to one of these episodes), so we're looking to bring it back in a re-tooled format. You'll have to listen to find out our plans.

The most ambitious crossover event in film history deserves the most ambitious crossover in podcasting history... but you'll just have to settle for this one.
The Main Damie Podcast teams up with The Married Cinematic Universe Podcast to talk about The Avengers: Infinity War. We talk about our expectations going into the movie, our favorite parts, where we think everything is headed, and try and find a way to bring Michael B. Jordan back into the MCU.

As Dan Aquino is off in March Madness, we ask our good friend, Tom Schuster, to sit in with us for a special episode of The Main Damie podcast.
We start off by welcoming Tom to the show and allowing him to weigh in on how things are going over at Stranger Damies, our real-play D&D podcast, in which he plays Tiresias the Deceived.
We then go right into our lineups for our fictional baseball team lineups. We pull from all sorts of mediums: movies, TV, video games, cartoons, and even an elaborate April Fools' joke. There's some overlap, but each team is pretty unique.

It's been a loooong day without you, my friends. But The Main Damie podcast has finally come back with a vengeance. Before we go headfirst into the topics at hand, we check in with each of our hosts to see what they've been up to. Dan got married and Mark got to celebrate a Super Bowl Championship for his beloved Eagles. Anthony doesn't mention it, but he wanted to let everyone know he got a new pair of socks in the downtime.
Our first topic is actually an explanation of where we've been this whole time, which has been our newest venture, STRANGER DAMIES, our real-play Dungeons and Dragons podcast. We talk about what made Mark decide he wanted to start this podcast, what we thought about our first few sessions, and where we want it to go.
From there, we backtrack to the end of 2017 and discuss some things that we missed. We let Mark and Dan talk about their favorite movies from the past year, and Anthony has some strong words for the movie that left the worst impression on him.
Finally, we talk about Black Panther, the biggest movie of the young year. We all talk about what we liked about it and can't help but sing its praises.

On this episode of the Main Damie podcast, we introduced two exciting new events coming to the site over the next few months, and Mark actually has a happy wrestling experience.
