We’ve Got Issues: A New Podcast by Yours Truly

Featured

Hey y’all!

Sooooo my pal George Marston (who also writes about comics) and I have long been talking about doing a thing. Something related to comics. We thought it could be a website, a youtube channel, a bad fan art collective… but we eventually settled on a podcast. We like to think that we’ve got faces for radio. We are really, really, really, ridiculously good-looking.

Now, I am 100% new to podcasting. I’m new to recording, and new to having to listen to my own voice over and over while I am editing. It’s much less glamorous than I had anticipated, but it’s still a heckuva lotta fun. George does some voice acting, so this is an old hat for him. His charisma levels are off the charts. For now, I view my microphone with fear and trepidation. But BY THE BEARD OF ZEUS I will conquer it! Continue reading

Podcast: ‘The Fifth Beatle’

I am a massive Beatles fan and relished the opportunity to geek out with Sidebar Nation’s Swain Hunt about Dark Horse’s “The Fifth Beatle: The Brian Epstein Story” in a Sidebar podcast. This truly exquisite and poignant graphic novel tells the story of the Beatles’ manager, Brian Epstein, the man who played a central role in making them icons and struggled greatly in his personal life as a closeted gay man. Written by Vivek J. Tiwary and gloriously illustrated by lead artist Andrew C. Robinson (with notable contributions by Kyle Baker), it’s one of the best things I’ve read this year. We loved the hell out of it, so check us out as we discuss the many highlights.

E. and I are counting the days until DragonCon. I have actually got little numbers on each day of my calender and I check them off as we get closer. This is how excited I am. DragonCon is one of the most special places in the universe with an amazing celebratory spirit, your favorite sci-fi stars, brilliant comic artists and ALL of the cosplay. Speaking of cosplay … I will be Black Canary again, and Erika will be cosplaying for the FIRST TIME.

Our friends at The Unique Geek are lovers of DragonCon, too. Every year they do a countdown podcast – 50 Days of DragonCon. This year, Girls Gone Geek is Day 20 and we talk cosplay.

I have talked about how Erika and I started Girls Gone Geek before, but this time I get technical. I joined my friend Dana Sciandra on his podcast, Stimulated Boredom, to talk about starting a blog or website. Through anecdotes and several years of experience we share some best practices as well as things you might want to avoid when starting your journey into the blogosphere. So, if you have a passion and have been thinking about sharing it with the world – give this episode a listen. It might be just the motivation you were waiting for. Also, we are funny.

I have been pretty tight-lipped about my specific thoughts on Man of Steel. That’s because I was saving it for this very podcast. Last night, Erika and I were guests on Stimulated Boredom. We got on about the brave Lois Lane, a sullen Clark Kent, Christian allegory and the collateral damage of the long-awaited Superman film. We had a ton of fun talking about it and hope you enjoy the show.

But, if you haven’t seen the movie yet, there are massive spoilers in our discussion. Gargantuan. We talk about every scene we can remember in explicit detail. While I really, really want you to listen now – see the film first if you haven’t already. We’ll be here when you get back.

G3 Podcast: The DCnU Roundup

Our Geek Lunch crew had a lot to chew on this month after the first wave of DC’s relaunched titles hit the stands. In this episode, V. and I, along with Shag of Firestorm Fan and our pal Terry M., discuss and debate everything from Animal Man to Voodoo. As usual, it’s a highly spirited conversation with a plenty of laughs.

A special thank you to our friend, Dana, for hosting the podcast at his site –  StimulatedBoredom.com.

G3 Podcast: Geek Lunch

YOU’VE READ ABOUT IT ON OUR FACEBOOK STATUS!

YOU’VE HEARD ABOUT IT ON TV!

IT’S CLINICALLY PROVEN TO INCREASE QUALITY OF LIFE!

YOU’RE DYING FOR THE FILM FRANCHISE!

Not really, but we have mentioned it many times. It is one of the things I look forward to the most in this world. I am referring to our beloved Geek Lunch.

What is a Geek Lunch?

E. and I used to talk about comics over lunch every week, and it has blossomed into Girls Gone Geek. Over time, our circle widened. Now we have the distinct pleasure, once a month, of discussing comics over a tasty meal with some of our favorite humans.

Who are the characters that make up this special occasion?

E. and I are joined by the cosplaying comic shop clerk, Lindsey, the quick-witted CT from Nerd Lunch, the irredeemable Shag from Once Upon a Geek and Firestorm Fan, the enigma known as Choco Taco (you can call him Terry if you’re feeling froggy), and David, who is doing his thesis on war messages in Superman comics during World War II. We gather to celebrate our joyous and occasionally sarcastic love of comics.

Many times after a rough week at work, I will go to Geek Lunch and find my paradigm completely shifted to the realm of geeky goodness and great company. It never ceases to be awesome.

After one of our fine lunches, I was contemplating the conversation. There are some brilliant and festive voices in this bunch, and wondered how it would play as a podcast.

THE WAIT IS OVER!

We wax on and off … and on about DC’s relaunch, the characters we love to hate, and the dollars and sense of digital comics.

Enjoy! We did.

Podcastin’ … Yo

E. and I had a grand time chatting it up with Jimmy at Heretical Jargon. We talked favorite artists, kick-ass characters, all that is currently Wonder Woman, a little Green Lantern, shout-outs to Shag and Dana, The Flash is faster than Superman ;-) , and other random comic fodder.

For those who missed the live conversation, you can download the recorded version HERE.

Living in a Fangirl World

The hilarious Dana, host of the internet talk show Stimulated Boredom, was gracious enough to have me on his show this week. He is super effing nice, and I had a blast.

We talked about Comic-Con, comic book culture, cheesecake, and Girls Gone Geek. Props are given to my favorite artists, writers, and characters.  I run down my list of must read books for prospective Padawans. I also felt compelled to let the world know why E. Peterman rocks and other random things about this fangirl’s world.

Check me out as I wax geek with Dana. Please and Thank you.
