Crank was bored and Norton loved podcasts...thus was born the Crankcast! This is generally an alcohol lubricated bull-session between Crank and Norton plus the occasional guest. Think of it as chatting with friends at a local bar. We talk about comics, movies and whatever else we feel like at the moment.

It's the crankcast! m.norton, c.crank

Freewheelin' and Frank

Insightful talk from comic book pros Mike Norton and Crank (and friends) about the comics industry, movies, music, life, Chris Makepeace, Bill Duke, taxes, pugs and more. These two talk cover it all.

I can't believe these guys are still at it.

I honestly didn't think this show would be around for a year, much less....good God, closing in on 8 now? 9?

Classic stuff....Taun Tauns in Cranks Apt, the 24 Hour podcast, the Spiderman 3 rant. I've taken numerous breaks from listening, and each time I come back its still so funny.

Listen to the Archives, catch up, wait impatiently as Crank posts a new ep each week. Good Times.

Awesome

I give it four stars just cuz iTunes says there are no reviews and can't average all the 5 star reviews. In my warped mind I somehow think this will fix the problem. Awesome podcast.
