In which our intrepid heroes (Hub and Cory) endeavor to read and discuss the entire New Teen Titans series AND the entire Defenders series. Using only their wits, Hub's comic book collection, and a not insignificant amount of alcohol, these brave men attempt the Sisyphean task of wringing coherence from the four color world of 70's/80's comics. Which is to say that my brother Cory and I get our swerve on and read some comics. Join us, won't you?

Amazing way to pass the time

This is an incredibly fun and funny podcast about Teen Titans and early Defenders comics. Hub and Corey have kept me laughing out loud far, far longer than any other podcast I’ve listened to (which is a lot even before the pandemic). Definitely not a podcast appropriate for children. And yet... I am admittedly overly sensitive about crass jokes and even I have never been offended by anything these guys have said, which is frankly an amazing line that they have managed to walk.

No matter where you are coming from, either someone who is very familiar with the material or someone who has never heard of it, this show will keep you in tears laughing, and very likely learning something new.

Hub and Cory deserve all the whiskey

This is one of the most entertaining podcasts I have ever listened to.And the dynamic between hub and Cory reminds me of myself with my favorite brother.

Just like a Wednesday

When I was a mere youth, I used to travel to ye olde comic shoppe to converse about my favorite comic book superheroes. We’d make fun of their antics and the shenanigans they’d get up to. That’s what this podcast feels like. Now I’m not an expert on shenaniganisms but it’s clear that Hub is, so if you want to learn all about shenanigans and donnybrooks and tomfoolery and maybe even Maryfoolery, you should check out Titan Up The Defense which is most definitely hosted by a Human Man From Earth and his Good For Many Things brother Cory. It’s a hoot! And I’m not an owl.
