    Credit Where Credit is Due

    Somebody started a hashtag on "the Twitters" because even after ten years of blockbuster Marvel & DC movies, nobody realized that all those characters were based on comic books! Yeah, that's totally what we're talking about.
    Show Notes:
    -Brad stirs the pot, then runs away.
    -Scott yells at Cory and doesn't apologize.
    -Cory doesn't care because Scott's a dumb-dumb and Cory writes all the show notes so gets the last word in anyway... suck it Kurtz.

    Celebrity as Content

    Celebrity as Content

    What exactly is creative content in an online world and who defines its value? In a new media age who decides the good content from the bad, or is it all just a matter of likes and subscribes? We get deep in the weeds of art and new media. Scott and Brad get very old about it all but Cory doesn't, because Cory is young and hip and definitely not writing this description about himself...

    The Myth of Making Your Own Hours

    If you're a creative or work-from-home professional you've definitely had someone tell you how lucky you are to "work in your living room" or "make your own hours" or "wear your pajamas all day"
    ...okay we all do that last one, but still, what the hell do they know?! NOTHING! And now there's an episode you can direct them to the next time they suggest you don't actually work at a "job."

Everything Everywhere ,

Excellent Show

I'm not a cartoonist but I get a great deal of value out of every show.

Alex "2.0" ,

Simply the best!

I love this show so much. Scott and Brad are literally--LITERALLY--the best pairing since peanut butter and chocolate. Equal parts snark and amiable punnery, their humor is in a class of its own. Also, they have good advice.

PwnyWarrior ,

So amazing

Absolutely love this. It helps with my small art business and is super entertaining. I can't wait for each episode.
