After a long day or recording, Carl and Dan sat down to speak a little nerd to one another. This episode, we craft a new super team to join the Kingsmen and Statesmen in the Kingsmen Universe.
After Watching Kingsmen 2 and thoroughly enjoying it I found myself wondering what a group from Africa would look like in that universe. I arbitrarily threw out the name “The Plainsmen” and stopped thinking about it.
Today, Dan and Carl unpack that name and see where it leads. The nerd hole is deep on this one and we come out the other end feeling pretty good about ourselves.

"The country of Kansala in Africa is a prosperous one. It’s mountains are filled with gold and it’s wide plains are plentiful with the full wide range of African animals.
But Kansala has a secret. It has been protected for hundreds of years by a secret group called the plainsmen. We find out that They began as a group of alchemists, that figured out how to turn rocks into gold. And in fact, the reason that Africa has so much gold is due to what the plainsmen refer to as ‘the incident’. Due to their ability to produce gold at will, the plainsmen are a very wealthy organization. After being the secret driving force that stopped the slave trade, they now focus largely on the conservation of their land and culture. The current leaders are Idris Elba and Zoe Saldana. Idris leads the alchemy operations and Zoe is a warrior leading the conservation battle.
A problem arises. A group of Super poachers has discovered their secret. They want to kill all the lions and shit, and also steal the alchemy secrets to fund their evil schemes.
An ex statesman or Kingsman in the form of Clayton from Tarzan has teamed up with the Plainsmen, for an opportunity to hunt the most dangerous game."
