Kumail and Emily bring you all the news you need to know about (read: all the news they care about) that came out of this year's SDCC! Also they stop along the way to take you to an arcade in Montreal, to make AntMan puns, and to sing the A-Team Theme. So, pretty standard.

Kumail and Emily had so much to do at E3 that they couldn't cram it in to one episode! This week, you'll come with them as they tour the Midwest, and then you'll jump back in time and come with them as they go to parties at E3, walk the floor at E3, and run into buddies like Malik Forte, Troy Baker, Zach Woods, Kyle Hilliard of Game Informer, and more!
