The Direct Podcast Episode 37




The Direct Podcast has found a new home at the end of your week. From this point forward, episodes will be dropping on FRIDAYS until the content calendar changes. 

This week we are burdened with "Glorious Purpose" as we review and break down everything from episode one of Loki. 

What went into the decisions to give Loki an episode one arc? What is the deal with the drawer full of Infinity Stones? And who is this mysterious Loki who is terrorizing the timeline?

These are all questions we dive into but also questions we were able to ask the head writer of the show, Michael Waldron! Most of our exclusive interview with the upcoming penman of the MCU is featured.

We also got some great news from a Galaxy Far Far Away as both Forest Whitaker and Ben Mendelsohn are set to reprise their roles from Rogue One in the upcoming prequel series, Andor. 

All of that plus your top news of the week right here on Episode 37 of The Direct Podcast.
