    Episode 19: Speaking Out Against Oppression.

    Episode 19: Speaking Out Against Oppression.

    Y’all, my platform might not be large, but it will be used to speak out against oppression and to speak up for the oppressed. We live in a time when we need to no longer be silent and need to speak up. This episode is me starting to speak out. Please listen with an open mind. Please realize I won’t always get everything right, but I will strive to be teachable and to listen. Let me say this clearly: Black Lives Matter.

    Episode 18: The One About Comic Books!

    A nostalgic and rambling dive into one of my comic book boxes! I grabbed the one that is filled with random comic books that I’ve not seen in ages and emptied it out while discussing aspects of 90’s comic books and the industry. Join me for a fun exploration of a box of comic books!

    Episode Seventeen: A Walk Through The Shelves Part Two!

    Be sure to listen to parts 1 and 1&1/2 first but here is part 2! We take a silly and hopefully fun walk through my bookshelves as I describe one book per shelf and give my thoughts on it. Thank you for listening!

    Episode Sixteen And A Half: The Missing Minutes!

    Episode Sixteen And A Half: The Missing Minutes!

    For some reason when I published episode sixteen it published complete on Anchor but incomplete on Apple Podcasts and Spotify! To correct this I’ve added the missing (almost) ten minutes here to episode 16&1/2 so that you can hopefully continue to enjoy this fun walk through my shelves!

    Episode Sixteen: A Walk Through The Shelves Part One!

    Episode Sixteen: A Walk Through The Shelves Part One!

    Join me as I get a little silly and travel through my shelves reading book descriptions in a very serious and cheesy voice! This one was fun to make, hope you enjoy it! One important note the episode cut out a ten minute segment at the end but no worries I’m adding it as episode 16 & 1/2!

Great!

This is a must listen podcast for Sci-Fi lovers. And everyone else! I do not read a lot of sci-fi, but listening to this podcast I now want to read more of it. I’ve been following Jacob on Instagram for a long time, love his posts and reviews. I usually zone out when listening to podcasts, but not with this one! It keeps me focused. It’s probably the only podcast I listened to every single episode of, I highly recommend it.

Sorely disappointing

Originally I was going to rate this 5 stars, and offer the only criticism that maybe acquiring a cohost would help the show, but upon listening to the latest episode, a barely structured rant on fantasy sub genres in which he sounded ill informed and poorly read in a field he is supposedly speaking authoritatively on, I couldn’t in good conscience rate it highly. Having another voice on this show would help greatly, not only to make it seem way less pathetic, (just one guy rambling aimlessly alone in a room) but differing opinions always help balance a podcast out. I enjoyed this podcast up until the fantasy genre episode, which shows huge gaps in the presenter’s knowledge, and a poor awareness of how certain things fit in to the fantasy genre. This is very unfortunate, as I had high hopes for this podcast.

The real deal.

I’ve known Jacob for a while, he is the real deal when it comes to books and the people who absolutely love to read them. I had never listened to a podcast before, but I just listened to the latest episode from RedStarReviews and I loved it. I subscribed immediately and now I’m gonna listen to the older episodes, and I’m on the lookout for more podcasts to subscribe to.
