Crooked Table Podcast: Episode 62 — Defending ‘The Defenders’: The Marvel Netflix Team Assembles

In Episode 62 of the Crooked Table Podcast, Robert Yaniz Jr. and Freddy Yaniz stroll down the dark alleys of Hell’s Kitchen for their long-awaited in-depth discussion of Marvel’s The Defenders. Which Marvel Netflix show is their favorite one to date, and how does this team-up miniseries build upon the narrative threads and character journeys set forth in Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage and Iron Fist? We’ll get into all that and so much more, including where we’re hoping to see the Netflix branch of the Marvel Cinematic Universe travel next.

Synopsis courtesy of Netflix:

Marvel’s The Defenders follows Daredevil AKA Matt Murdock (Charlie Cox), Jessica Jones (Krysten Ritter), Luke Cage (Mike Colter) and Iron Fist AKA Danny Rand (Finn Jones), a quartet of singular heroes with one common goal – to save New York City. This is the story of four solitary figures, burdened with their own personal challenges, who reluctantly realize they just might be stronger when teamed together. Marvel’s The Defenders is produced by Marvel Television in association with ABC Studios for Netflix. 

We’re excited to hear your feedback as the Crooked Table Podcast continues to evolve. As usual, the show does feature explicit language and, as such, is best considered NSFW.

Thanks for listening!
