#480: Titans vs Guardians of the Galaxy

The Superhero Show Show #480

Titans vs Guardians of the Galaxy

It’s the series finale of Titans, the series of finale of Guardians of the Galaxy, and so much more, on an all-new Superhero Show Show!

On an all-new, all-different episode of The Superhero Show Show, Cassie and the Boyz are saying goodbye to so many things! In the main event, the Taste Buds are saying goodbye to the Titans, the HBO Max show that never really became one of their favorite shows, but was never really one of the worst, either. They discuss the fourth season finale and the demise of Brother Blood, before talking about the show’s legacy. Will this soon be a forgotten show, or a missed one.

But before that, the whole gang is saying goodbye to the James Gunn-era of the MCU by discussing Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol. 3. By this point it is a resounding commercial, if not critical success, but what did the Taste Buds think of the movie? How hard were the Rocket scenes for avowed animal-lovers Cassie and Katelynn? And how easy were they for animal-hater Mike?

All of that, plus discussions on every other show this week, including reviews and discussions of Gotham Knights, Superman and Lois, Riverdale, Sweet Tooth, and The Flash. 

All of that, and so much more, on an all-new Superhero Show Show!

While Americans overwhelmingly support the right of an individual to make their own decisions about abortion, unfortunately, that right is no longer protected everywhere in the U.S.

The Supreme Court overturned Roe versus Wade on June 24th.

Abortion is a basic healthcare need for the millions of people who can become pregnant. Everyone should have the freedom to decide what’s best for themselves and their families, including when it comes to ending a pregnancy. This decision has dire consequences for individual health and safety, and could have harsh repercussions for other landmark decisions.

Restricting access to comprehensive reproductive care, including abortion, threatens the health and independence of all Americans. Even if you live in a state where abortion rights are upheld, access to safe medical procedures shouldn’t be determined by location, and it shouldn’t be the privilege of a small few.

You can help by donating to local abortion funds. To find out where to donate for each state, visit donations4abortion.com.

1. Shout Your Abortion is a campaign to normalize abortion.

2. Don’t Ban Equality is a campaign for companies to take a stand against abortion restrictions.

3. Abortion.cafe has information about where to find clinics.

4. PlanCPills.org provides early at-home abortion pills that you can keep in your medicine cabinet. And five.
