Welcome to Episode 195 of the Two-Headed Nerd Comic Book Podcast!

This week, we discuss the Ms. Marvel’s fight against hate speech in San Francisco, our first impressions of the Fantastic Four teaser trailer and the casting of David Tennant as the Purple Man, and the casting announcement of Paul Feig’s Ghostbusters reboot.

Plus, Matt’s wife Kacie returns with her breakdown of Marvel Comics’ Secret Wars from 1984, in a segment we were legally compelled to call Kacie Explains It All!
