One of my favorite podcasts! I listen every week. Just wish I could download it in .mp3 instead of .wma through iTunes. Keep up the great work!

Great Show!

I started listening to the show once I saw an ad for it in Chimera's Comics, and I've been an avid listener ever since I saw it back in 2013. This around the time I was getting into comics, and it's been great hearing the guys who have been into that culture for years give recommendations, which was useful in becoming as fluent in comic book culture as I am today. I love that they don't stick to just comic books, and that the show naturally ends up on topics like video games or classic movies, (2 topics I also love) making the podcast seem much more naturally flowing than other, more segmented shows. It all comes together to make a consistently great show that I try to listen to as soon as possible each week. (Also I was promised a shoutout if I wrote this review, and I got a shoutout on the most recent episode, so hopefully this creates enough demand for me to be a guest (just kidding!))
