Pick of the Week Podcast – Episode #570 – The Flintstones  

Some Chaykin talk, some gentle ribbing, Mark Wahlberg, and plenty of dislikes to go around, but some actual thoughtful talk about comics, somewhere in the middle.

Special Edition Podcast – Powerless  

Who would have thought we'd ever see a sitcom based in the DC Comics Universe? Well, here we are. Possibly the apex of the superhero media frenzy, or just another chapter.

Special Edition Podcast – Riverdale  

It’s time to go to a place where things are simper, quieter.

Booksplode #17 – Russian Olive to Red King  

It’s back! Thanks to our awesome Patrons, it’s the return of the Booksplode! What’s a Booksplode you might ask?

Pick of the Week Podcast – Episode 567 – Southern Bastards #16  

Say that our podcast is Electro and… It’ll make sense when you listen. Maybe not, actually. Ron, Josh and Conor are back with some comics that were chosen by us to read, and others that were chosen by people who specifically wanted to punish us. But their vindictive voting cannot stem the tide of a good time talking about comics and rating (rating) things, plus TR Talk. Why hasn’t Ron watched Friday Night Lights?
