This week we do a ton of catching up in On Shelves Now, reviewing the Magneto Testament mini-series, Young X-Men 10, Manifest Destiny 5, X-Force 11, X-Infernus 3, and X-Factor 40.
We then bring Brian Braddock (aka Captain Britain) on to give some advice to our listeners. Special thanks to Brian for being on the show!
And in Retro Reviews we look at Secret Wars 2: 5 and 6, and finally make Brian happy by reading New Mutants Special Edition 1 and Uncanny X-Men Annual 9. We finish up a big review of Uncanny X-Men 200.
And finally, an action packed Fastball Special.
Highlights include Brian's review of Cherry Poptart 1, germs, going to the movies alone, checking out chicks with a four year old, and which On Shelves Now sent Rob on an angry tirade?

This week we're trying something a little different. Generally we put our X-Phone segment into a regular episode which leads to the following:
1. A three hour episode
2. Us half awake for the last hour of said episode
3. Rob wanting to hang himself a halfway through editing the episode
So we've decided since the X-Phones are generally about an hour long, we'd release them as standalone episodes. Hopefully nobody minds this format change, but if you do... well... tough. :)
This week we've got on IDW Publishing Senior Editor Andy Schmidt. You may ask yourself, what the heck does IDW have to do with the X-Cast? Well, Andy edited the X-Men over at Marvel for about five years. That's what! We talk with Andy about his days with the X-Men, dealing with the "where's Kitty Pryde??" problem, G.I. Joe, Transformers, Peter David and Fallen Angel, friend of the show and artistic genius Robert Atkins, and a bunch of other editorial-esque stuff. Hope you enjoy and we'll be back with a regular episode soon!

With Brian seemingly free of the Legacy Virus, we finally get to reviewing Astonishing 29, Cable 10, the X-Men World's Apart mini, Legacy 220, X-Men Annual 2, and X-Factor 39.
We get a VERY special treat in Inside the Mansion as our mystery guest does his own Inside the Mansion, much to Brian's chagrin.
And in Retro Reviews we look at Uncanny 197-199 and New Mutants 32 - 34.
And we finish with an action packed Fastball Special with topics ranging from back hair to circumcision.
