This week’s Geek Confidential podcast wraps with Luke and Dan discussing Marvel’s Iron Fist on Netflix. Is Iron Fist as bad as the early reviews made it seem? What are the best and worst elements of the first half of the season? Tom Pelphrey is a standout as Ward Meachum in the early episodes, but it’s the return of Wai Ching Ho as Madame Gao that steals the show. Dan weighs in on Roy Thomas’ controversial interview with Inverse about the show.

All this and much more on the latest Geek Confidential episode.
