  1. Wow, this episode was great and I’m looking forward to the “sequels”. I hope you’ll focus on several characters, particularly Shuri, who, as the brightest (and youngest) STEM practitioner in the MCU, really struck a chord with me. She made a joke that almost no one but another scientist would catch and I loved her for it.

    Peace and blessings… I thoroughly enjoyed listening to each voice and to hearing you all enjoy yourselves with each other.
