Awesome author and amazing podcast
This is my favorite podcast.
Nice and mellow about topics I like!
I nice, mellow podcast that keeps its own pace. No hurry. No fuss. I sit back and relax to conversations about topics I like: comics, vampires, horror, and wherever else the trail goes. This is more of a journey podcast than a destination podcast, and it’s great for long commutes in traffic.
Great! (Regardless of one's perception of time)
This show is easily one of my favorite podcasts. The funny thing is, I’m not a fan of wrestling, I don’t really read comics, and I’ve never really been that interested in horror—all core topics of this podcast. And yet, even though I’m not part of the target audience for those topics, I still tune in every week. The host, Martin Lastrapes, is engaging and entertaining and manages to book fascinating guests like nobody’s business. Anybody who has an interest in entertainment (movies, books, comics, television, and so on) is bound to connect with some aspect of the show, especially if you are a fan of or do any sort of writing. And here’s a tip: try a few episodes with topics or guests that wouldn’t normally be interesting to you. I bet you’ll be pleasantly surprised at how much you enjoy them. Full disclosure: I’m a friend of Martin. But even if I didn’t know him, I would still recommend this podcast. Whether you’re a reader, writer, fan of any sort of entertainment, or just a fan of podcasts, this show will almost certainly have something for you to enjoy.
