I love the idea that Batroc chose his costume's colors in honor of wine and cheese!

Woo-hoo, one issue down! Can't wait for the next edition!

The only thing that could make this podcast better is if you talked about gorillas :) Another great episode. I think mistletoe grows wild (or used to) as a parasite plant on oak trees...so I guess you CAN'T say "Be careful with that mistletoe, that stuff doesn't grow on trees, you know!". Wasn't mistletoe potion what gave Asterix his strength? Maybe Balder would be vulnerable to him, too.

I never realized until now that we were missing a floor plan of Baron Mordo's kitchen...someone needs to get on that! The girls will be happy to know there is a floor plan of Dr. Strange's house when you get to the "D"'s.

I never really noticed Batroc's accent in the movie--though I knew GSP was Quebecois--but, like you said, it's not really a thing Anglos would notice. If the movie had come out twenty or thirty years ago, Batroc would probably have been played by Van Damme, with his Belgian accent. I liked how the girls were trying to come up with alternate names for Batroc's Brigade...I suggest Zaran's Zoo or Machete's Menagerie!
