‘This Week In Marvel’ Celebrates 500 Episodes
by Brendan M. Allen
This Week in Marvel, Marvel’s flagship podcast series, hasn’t missed a beat, or a week, since launching in 2011. The latest episode marks a new audio milestone for Marvel: the 500th episode of the series.
Hosted by Marvel New Media VP & Creative Executive Ryan “Agent M” Penagos, Marvel New Media Senior Producer Lorraine Cink, and Tony Award winner James Monroe Iglehart, This Week in Marvel gives fans inside access to all the latest Marvel comics, TV, movies, games, toys, and beyond.
To celebrate the series’ landmark 500th episode, Penagos and Cink are joined by guests from across the House of Ideas. Go in-depth and behind-the-scenes to hear teases of the mighty Marvel shows you’ll be watching, games you’ll be playing, comics you’ll be reading, and stories you’ll be experiencing in this epic anniversary episode. Guests on episode 500 include:
- Brad Winderbaum, Head of Streaming and Animation for Marvel Studios
- C.B. Cebulski, Editor-in-Chief for Marvel Comics
- Eric Monacelli, Senior Director, Product Development for Marvel Games
- Tim Tsang, Creative Director for Marvel Games
- Ellie Pyle, Director, Content Development for Marvel New Media
“I love milestone anniversary celebrations in our comics and across Marvel, so I knew we had to have something big and special for our 500th episode,” said Penagos, who’s also the original and ongoing co-host of This Week in Marvel. “The show has always been about getting hyped and providing insight into what’s going on each week across every aspect of Marvel, so what better way to do that than bring in some of the most talented people creating astonishing Marvel stories across all forms of media? It’s a Definitive Ding Dang Delight, a true Quadruple D.”
“Over the last decade, This Week in Marvel has been celebrating the Marvel Universe with our own madcap fandom and merry Marvel revelry – so it only makes sense that we’d blow it out for our 500th episode!” said Cink. “Every week, we talk with famous fans and key players from across Marvel, but perhaps my favorite part is getting to share our years of knowledge so every Marvel fan feels like an insider and has a place to share their fandom. This one goes out to the fans!”
This Week in Marvel releases every Thursday on the SXM app and SiriusXM desktop player, and every Friday across all major podcast platforms.
Recent guests have included cast and crew of Marvel Studios’ original series The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, recording artists Lecrae and Saint Bodhi, WWE legends Shawn Michaels and the Undertaker, comedians Paul Scheer and Aunty Donna, and other celebrities, Marvel icons, and creators.
