    Ka-Pow the Pop Cultured Podcast #216 Still Room Enough for Pettiness

    We're talking comic books this time around.  After catching up on our quarantine reading and congratulating our pal James Patrick on his upcoming book "The Kaiju Score," Jordan takes the time to outline the unprecedented events of the past few months that have shaken up the comic industry, the dysfunctional ways everyone has scrambled to hold it together and the spark of optimism for some changes that could improve things in the aftermath.  We've got the Dungeon Master's Guide.  We've got a 12-sided die.  We've got Kitty Pryde and Nightcrawler too, waiting here for you, in Ka-Pow the Pop Cultured Podcast's garage!
