Happy Monday after Mother’s Day! I am all kinds of exhausted from doing holiday things, so you’re not going to get a whole lot out of me this week in regards to extra commentary.
But, I did talk for almost an hour about this week’s episode with my two good nerd friends over at Stimulated Boredom. Our varying levels of Fire & Ice knowledge visits the Tower of Joy. R + L = J, ya’ll. At least, it sure does seem to be heading in that direction.
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 “We’ve Got Issues: A New Podcast by Yours Truly”
Nothing brings out the fangirl in Erika like the Beatles. Then Dark Horse went and put them in a comic. Listen as E. joins Sidebar Nation for a lively discussion about “The Fifth Beatle: The Brian Epstein Story.”
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.
Erika and Vanessa chat with their friends at The Unique Geek about DragonCon and cosplay.
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.
It’s Geek Lunch time again and the gang’s all here for another round of chowing down and cutting up. Come join us along with Shag of Firestorm Fan, Billy, Terry and C.T. of Nerd Lunch as we nom on an assortment of topics: Megacon dish, Rob Liefeld, the appeal of indie books, and which title is “the Lindsay Lohan of comics.” Click here to listen to the podcast.
Join Erika and Vanessa for their guest appearance on the Nerd Lunch Podcast!

There are plenty of comics podcasts out there, but the guys behind the Sidebar Nation chatfest — Dwight, Swain and Adrian — are some of the most knowledgeable, opinionated and flat-out funny geeks ever to rock the mic. We had the pleasure of meeting Dwight at Dragon*Con, and Swain moderated the excellent Dark Knight panel. Based out of Atlanta, the Sidebar Nation crew has interviewed some of the biggest names in comics, and their fandom runs deep. They’re super cool to boot, and I learn something every time I tune in. G3 chatted it up with the guys via e-mail, and they were kind enough to answer our nosy questions. If you haven’t listened to their podcast, check it out at their site or via iTunes. You’ll be glad you did. Continue reading “Take A Trip To Sidebar Nation”
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.
