The Marvelous Madames
If you love Marvel but are tired of hearing Cheeto-stained white guys talk about it, this show is for you. It’s Marvel - minus the mansplaining. On Mondays, join hosts Kris & Amy for a feminine take on the Marvel Extended Universe of films & shows: the Infinity Saga, X-Men, the Spider-verse, plus all the Marvel offerings on Netflix, Disney+, & beyond.
DD#6 - Daredevil S1E6: Ninja Turtles Unite
Matt Murdock is on the run from Wilson Fisk’s personal goon squad. With Vladimir in tow, Matt holes up in an abandoned warehouse to formulate an escape plan & get information out of the Russian. Meanwhile, Foggy remains in the hospital with Karen, where he’s being treated for a serious shrapnel wound. And outside the warehouse now surrounded by cops, Ben Urich is digging further into the bombings around Hell’s Kitchen. With a little virtual assistance from Claire Temple, Matt keeps Vladimir alive long enough to get the name of Wilson Fisk’s money man, Leland Owlsley. Via walkie-talkie, Matt has his first conversation with the Kingpin himself, at which point Matt finally understands how overmatched he is in the fight for the soul of Hell’s Kitchen. Making a last stand, Vladimir facilitates Matt’s escape through the tunnels, but he is in more trouble than when the standoff began. Thanks to Wilson Fisk’s media influence, the masked vigilante is now wanted for the murder of several police officers.  Daredevil is the launch point for the Netflix universe of Marvel shows. It stars Charlie Cox, Elden Henson, Deborah Ann Woll, Vincent D’onofrio, Toby Leonard Moore, Vondie Curtis-Hall, Ayelet Zurer, Bob Gunton, & Rosario Dawson. For more details on the film/TV references that spill out of Kris’s (and occasionally Amy’s) brain, as well as links to other podcasts, visit the episode page on our website:Episode pageEmail us at themarvelousmadames@gmail.comFollow us on Twitter & Instagram

Wilson Fisk launches a plan to strengthen his grip on the underworld of Hell’s Kitchen. He tasks henchman John Healy to publicly murder a rival mobster & endure a sham trial. Under Fisk’s orders, Wesley recruits Nelson & Murdock to represent Healy, giving Matt the opportunity to learn more about Fisk’s plans. A scared & frustrated Karen is being pressured to sign another non-disclosure agreement by Union Allied attorneys, while reporter Ben Urich is digging deeper into the company. Despite Matt’s best efforts, Fisk successfully taints the jury to secure a mistrial for Healy. Matt later finds & tortures Healy, who reluctantly divulges Fisk’s name to the masked vigilante.

DD#02 Daredevil S1E2: Dumpster Diving with Matt Murdock
Foggy takes Karen out for a night in Hell’s Kitchen as she continues to struggle with the aftermath of her near frame-job and attempted murder. While they’re drinking, Matt’s busy dying in a dumpster. He’s found by ER nurse and good Samaritan Claire Temple, who patches up the masked vigilante in her apartment. Matt was beaten after falling into a trap laid by the Russians, who are in cahoots with Union Allied. The Russians had kidnapped a young boy to lure Matt in and kill him. Matt fell for the gambit, but escaped alive. Unfortunately, the Russians tracked him back to Claire’s apartment. Matt manages to incapacitate the goon, and with Claire’s invaluable assistance, tortures him for information while Foggy & Karen enjoy their drunken revelry practically right next door.  Matt rescues the boy in the most epic manner possible, and the Russians scramble to appease a very annoyed Wilson Fisk. Daredevil is the launch point for the Netflix universe of Marvel shows.

DD#01 - Daredevil S1E1: Welcome to Hell’s Kitchen
Following the Battle of New York in The Avengers, we enter the dark, seedy world of Hell’s Kitchen. Matt Murdock is a freshly sworn lawyer by day and a masked vigilante by night. He also happens to be blind - kind of. Matt & his long-suffering legal partner, Foggy Nelson, get embroiled in a fishy murder case involving Karen Page. She’s being targeted by her employer, Union Allied, the corporate big bad of this season. Several attempts are made on Karen’s life, but the “devil of Hell’s Kitchen” saves her, and Karen exposes a major Union Allied scandal. Matt & Foggy hire a very grateful Karen as the secretary at their fledgling law firm, Nelson & Murdock. For now, Foggy and Karen are both unaware of Matt’s part-time ninja job and superish sensory powers. Daredevil is the launch point for the Netflix universe of Marvel shows. It stars Charlie Cox, Elden Henson, Deborah Ann Woll, Vincent D’onofrio, Toby Leonard Moore, Vondie Curtis-Hall, Ayelet Zurer, Bob Gunton, & Rosario Dawson. For more details on the film/TV references that spill out of Kris’s (and occasionally Amy’s) brain, as well as links to other podcasts, visit the episode page on our website:Episode show notesEmail us at themarvelousmadames@gmail.comFollow us on Twitter & Instagram

MCU #6 - The Avengers: Earth’s Mightiest Misfits
In this episode, the Madames rave about the highest-grossing movie of 2012, Joss Whedon’s “The Avengers.” They discuss the undeniable chemistry of the most beautiful cast of 7 people you’ll ever see, including our heroes: Tony Stark - Iron Man/billionaire/genius/playboy/philanthropistSteve Rogers - Captain America/virginBruce Banner - physicist/enormous green rage monsterThor - God of Thunder/exasperated older brotherNatasha Romanoff - Black Widow, master interrogatorClint Barton - Hawkeye, former professional archer And we can’t forget the big bad:Loki - God of Mischief/Rock of Ages As usual, Kris & Amy are asking the important questions:-How many apple carts did Tom Cruise loan RDJ for this movie?-Why is there not yet a worldwide Mark Ruffalo appreciation day?-Can we please get a Forensic Files episode on the death of Phil Coulson?-Did Loki see Titanic & think there was actually a king of the world position? The Madames debate these topics & more, with Loki’s scepter far out of reach to prevent unwanted Hulk-outs. Grab your Tesseract coaster, pour yourself a drink, & watch out for any stray Chitauri as you laugh along with Amy & Kris. The Avengers is the sixth film of the Infinity Saga and Phase 1 of the MCU, bringing that phase to a close.  The Avengers stars Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Hemsworth, Scarlett Johannson, Jeremy Renner, Tom Hiddleston, and Samuel L. Jackson (as Nick Fury).Episode Show Notes: https://themarvelousmadames.com/podcast-episodes/mcu-phase-1/mcu-6-the-avengers-earths-mightiest-misfits/Email us at themarvelousmadames@gmail.comFollow us on Twitter & Instagram
