Mercifully, fall is upon us and the Kicking the Seat Podcast looks back through the bloated, depressing muck that was the summer 2016 blockbuster movie season to a simpler time--to the dawn of a hopeful era in which the Russo Brothers' Captain America: Civil War promised a smart and thrilling few months. This is one of Ian's favorite movies of the year, and he's joined once again by Aaron Christensen (of the the film blog Horror 101 with Dr. A.C.), who had not seen the film before their get-together last week.

If you don't listen to Episode 154, you're no better than the bad guys!
