Great show

I love the deep dives they do on various nerd/geek topics. I’ve binged most the series over the past couple weeks.

Super nerd podcast for mild nerds as well

I don’t consider myself a hardcore gamer and I’m not at all interested in comic books/superheroes. I came into this podcasts thinking this was all they talked about. But they manage to cover the games I DO love and tons of movies and TV shows I’ve watched for years. Jake and Holden are weird as hell and hilarious.

Some episodes messed up?

I wanna say I LOVE your podcast! You guys are hilarious, fun, and really good at giving the breakdown of each topic. There isn’t an episode I don’t like.

I do have a question: some episodes like The Batman, Valve, and The Preacher ones just abruptly end and are only so long on here. Is that a known issue? I’d love to be able to listen to the entire episodes.
