Bees’ll buzz and kids’ll blow dandelion fuzz, and we’ll be doing whatever cinephiles do in summer. (Going to the movies, in an air-conditioned theater.) With The Avengers: Age Of Ultron kicking off the summer movie season in earnest, this week’s podcast is entirely devoted to the subject, starting with three Dissolvers presenting their case for the best summer movie year ever. Then we invite special guest Oliver Sava into the studio to talk about how the rise of comic-book movies has affected the trajectory of popular comics, for better or worse. The good news for contestants in this episode’s game: The word “summer” is correct in any answer; bad news: The words around it keep changing. And we wrap it up as always with our recommendation segment, 30 Seconds To Sell.
