Welcome to Medium Shift, the podcast that investigates how stories stack up from medium to medium through the adaptation process.

Episodes

Chris and Ev briefly investigate the most recent (and supposedly best) video game adaptation, Inspector Rodent (2019). No Pokémon were harmed in the making of this podcast (even if that one Likitung was asking for it).

This episode we start Evansfest, a made-up celebration of the superior Chris, Chris Evans and an exploration of four of his most significant adaptations. First off we have decided to start with his most celebrated role as America's Ass himself, Captain America. Note this episode was originally recorded pre-April 2018 hence no discussion of Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers: Endgame.
