Nonyourbeez ,

Brett is a great interviewer

A show that celebrates not so serious things in a respected manner with no wrong answers. It transports me back and has me considering further (re)embracing of comics.

not 2 beers ,

Dig it

My two favorite things comedy and comics, so this is a perfect pod for me

ICanStealThat ,

Great deep dive into comics

I really liked the first episode! Brett is a great host and a really good interviewer and I liked that they did a deep dive into old school comics for this one! Hearing about Archie was fun and I like that it spread out into other areas of geekdom!
