The X-Wife Podcast Annual #1

The X-Wife Podcast Annual #1

October 16, 2021

Can you believe it, folks? We've been making The X-Wife Podcast for a whole year! October 16 is when we launched our first intro episode, one year ago today. We take some time to talk about how far we've come in the last year with Justin's elaborate scheme to get Alicia into X-Men comics - we may need a new tagline! We also have our cell phone recorded audio from New York Comic Con. Some clips sound better than others, sorry! Until next time old friends...

Thanks for listening to our thirty-first episode of Season 3! AND it's our first Annual, a one-off adventure that has little to do with the main story. Comics do them, so why not us too!
