Gobbledygeek episode 361, “Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse (feat. Nate Curtiss),” is available for listening or download right here and on iTunes here.

Paul and Arlo swing into the Gobbledygeek season 9 finale with a discussion of the latest (and possibly greatest?) Spider-Man movie, Into the Spider-Verse. Popping in from an alternate dimension where “Curtis” has two s’s is their pal Nate Curtiss. The gang discusses how the movie nails the characterizations of Miles Morales and Peter Parker, its dazzling visuals, the film’s message of inclusion, and moviegoers’ animation biases. Plus, Paul and Arlo both make important announcements, and we discuss Miles in both the Spider-Man PS4 game and his own new comic book.

Next: if we’re legally allowed to say this, That’s all, folks! Happy holidays and we’ll see you next year for season 10!

Gobbledygeek episode 219, “Running with Gynecologists,” is available for listening or download right here, and on iTunes here.

For the first Geek Challenge of 2015, Paul and AJ have been challenged by friend of the show/Smoke Gets in Your Ears co-host Kenn Edwards to do things a little differently: Paul has to challenge AJ to a movie not from the ’80s, while AJ has to challenge Paul to one from the ’80s that isn’t black-and-white or foreign. After some head-scratching, Paul has chosen to force AJ to endure the 1976 cult classic Logan’s Run, about two people exploring the outer world; and AJ has tasked Paul with sitting through the 1988 David Cronenberg film Dead Ringers, about two people exploring the inner world. Tenuous connection aside, these are very different movies. Very different. Plus, the boys pay their respects to Leonard Nimoy, talk Spider-Gwen, and just want to be one of Will Forte’s ball-friends on The Last Man on Earth.

Next: this year’s Four-Color Flashback begins with a look at Out from Boneville, the first volume of Jeff Smith’s cartoony magnum opus Bone.
