This week, Spindles, Ady, Brendan and Emma give reactions to Guardians of the Galaxy, recent Marvel News, Upcoming Doctor Who, out and about at events over the summer, the devastating news about Robin Williams and more.

I will warn you in advance that the last 15 - 20 minutes of this show get very heavy indeed. In the week that Robin Williams lost his fight against depression, it was bound to happen that we would end up talking about it from our perspective. All of us suffer from depression and have done for a very long time. If hearing about this sort of thing first hand is a problem, then I would recommend you leave the cast at the point we start talking about Robin Williams.

More than an hour of the show is exactly what you've come to expect, but there is a long pause before we begin the discussion as the final point of the show should you wish to avoid it. We'll be back next time with our usual mix of beligerence and stupidity, but we've all been hit hard by this and couldn't see any way around talking about it.

To continue the serious side of this show, if you do suffer from depression and do need someone to talk to, if you have no-one else you feel comfortable talking to then please do try getting in touch with MIND. They are a mental health charity who can provide advice and support to anyone experiencing mental health issues. http://www.mind.org.uk/

The musical outro is from Esther Lane, who you can find on her soundcloud page: https://soundcloud.com/estherjoylane
