Marvel News Desk is back!  For those who haven’t heard, the MCU Exchange Podcast is now Marvel News Desk, the official podcast of mcuexchange.com.  We’ve got the same team of Adam, Caleb, and Rhiannon and the same format, just a little bit of rebranding.  On this week’s episode, we continue to process The Defenders and ask if some of those criticisms that have nagged the conversation are misplaced or right on.  We also look at all the latest MCU news, reviews, and speculation per usual.  So lend us your earballs and click play for the latest Marvel News Desk!
