(There’s a “hope you survive the experience” joke in here somewhere…)

Whoadang! We’re currently the featured podcast over at NPR’s earbud.fm!

If you’re new to Jay & Miles X-Plain the X-Men: It’s exactly what it says on the tin. We are Jay and Miles. (For folks coming in from the start: Rachel goes by Jay these days. Same person.) We explain the X-Men, in very roughly chronological order, sometimes with the help of folks responsible for them.

For a good general introduction to who we are and what we do, we’d recommend listening to the episode Giant-Size Special #1, which covers a stand-alone story (the graphic novel God Loves, Man Kills), along with a lot of bonus material (and significantly more navelgazing than usual).

We also do weekly video reviews of current X-books, which you can find here.

Jay and Miles X-Plain the X-Men is 100% listener supported and ad-free. If you want to join the ranks of the rad people who make it possible for us to keep making stuff, you can do that over at Patreon!

  1. This is a fun podcast. Thanks to NPR’s link, you’re giving me a chance to find out to the X-Men after I quit collecting the comic in 1983.

    I stopped because it was getting too angsty and dark for my taste. And after listening to your recap of Giant Size #1–specifically the Deadly Genesis ret-con–I’m glad I stopped when I did. I bought Giant Size #1 when it came out (yes, I am that old) and read the hell out of that comic! I don’t want my Prof. X to be that much of an asshole.

    In the years since, I’ve continued to fascinated by my favorite super group. Thanks for giving me a way to catch up. Maybe I’ll jump back in to collecting the book, especially since I can lure my kids in with the chance to read their dad’s original copies, too!
