    Episode 7: Power Pack #7

    Featuring the caped darkness of Cloak and the impossibly costumed Dagger. The dynamic duo join the kids, fresh off their first half-day at their new school, to try and do some superhero stuff. Since they are underage and in a new city and are still figuring out how to do this heroing thing, I am sure everything will turn out all right…..Hang on….getting handed a message….Nope...it all goes terribly wrong. But never fear, with beer in hand and some knowledge about fire retardants, Jeff and Rick are here to save the day. Let the sound effects commence!

    Episode 8: Power Pack #8

    The final issue of the Dragon Man/Cloak and Dagger arc….Hooray! The children were left in a perilous position in the final pages of last issue. There is drugs, robots, fighting, and dancing. So many questions were asked, but probably none of them were like this. What beer will see the talkative twosome of Jeff and Rick through these pages? What crazy concepts and witty words will be dreamed up by the Power children? What silly songs will escape the confines of Jeff’s beard? Tune in to another exquisite episode of our family friendly podcast to find out.

    Episode 9: Power Pack #9

    It is time for a new arc and a new adventure! The Power children are taken to the aquarium for a pleasant afternoon with their grandpa. Too bad there is a GIANT ALIEN SNAKE that spoils their good time. Man, I hate it when that happens. It reminds me of this one time, at work, I was having this fantastic nap, and my boss woke me up to tell me I was snoring too loud. Man, what a jerk…..what was I talking about? Anyway, Jeff and Rick get ready to rumble with a reptile in the latest installment of our (yet to be) award winning podcast. Join us! Rate us! Love Us!

    We made it to Episode 10, get outta here. You know how you should celebrate, support us on Patreon, https://www.patreon.com/JeffandRickPresent. Or just listen to the show. Seriously, that makes us happy too. And if you do listen to the show, you get to find out how they solve the snake situation as the plucky Power Pack pints team up with Marrina and Friday to go on an incredible sea adventure. Grab your flippers and deep sea masks, cause we are going for some deep dives. We may also talk about dogs, ukes, dolphins, and GI Joe. And Rick fails to correctly identify the Arctic from the Antarctic, so we can tease him about that for a while…that should be good for a laugh. Now to miss quote LL Cool J in Deepest, Bluest Gee..."My Gee is like a Sharks Fin."

Seriously, it is adorable. And why are we talking about cats again….this is like the second episode in a row. Well, it probably won’t continue Make sure you check out June’s gallery (http://www.artwanted.com/artist.cfm?ArtID=1321), her work on the daily comic strip Mary Worth (http://maryworthcomics.com/), and her upcoming comic book Captain Ginger (http://www.comicsahoy.com/series/captain-ginger).

Hey guys…

I think that you guys should post your patron episodes because some people can’t listen to them.

Pack-Men (and Pack-Daughter) Leading the Pack!

This show has it all: 1980s comic books! Beer! Science! Refrigerator Art! G-Forces! And commentary from an actual target-age child (she steals the show every time of course!). The creators of Power Pack have been guests, too! Tune in, or be less Energized than you could be!
