I am currently making my way through Parks & Recreation for the….thousandth time? And honestly, I can’t think of a better show to bide my time with right now. Creators Greg Daniels and Michael Schur, the same show-runners of The Office, did a wonderful job of following up their first collaboration with another powerhouse of a series. Every time I watch it, I laugh at the same jokes, and always learn something new.Read More
(Before I begin the post proper, let me say that it’s unfortunate, if not entirely unexpected, that people who suck at life have grossly misunderstood the character of The Punisher, and subsequently co-opted his – admittedly badass – skull insignia for their own dipshit reasons. Despite that, I still thoroughly enjoy the character, and doubt that will ever change. More to the point, I refuse to allow people who suck to ruin the fun – especially when considering that Frank Castle, if real, would hate these people even more than I do. In short, illegitimi non carborundum. If you like the character and hate that it’s being corrupted by fucking assholes, co-creator Gerry Conway has launched Skulls for Justice– a t-shirt campaign designed to “[re]claim this symbol,” with 100% of money raised going to Black Lives Matter. – Ted)Read More
Hello, my beautiful nerds and geeks, and happy May the 4th! We hope you all have been well, and are doing your best to stay sane during these crazy times! We wanted to take a quick second to fill y’all in on some new stuff going on with the podcast. If you have questions about any of the following items, please don’t hesitate to reach out to us on social media!
Our “Evil Villains” month is officially underway! For those of you just joining us, I’ll give you a quick rundown: Each week in April, Ted and I will discuss some of our favorite bad guys from popular mediums. Here’s the breakdown of episodes you can look forward to…
I explained in my previous article that I was starting a tutorial series on getting up and running with your very own podcast. So here I am to deliver! In Part 1 of this series, I’ll be giving you some advice and guidance on the very early stages of your podcast development: The “Planning” phase. As I illustrated previously, I am definitely not the most authoritative figure on podcasting. However, I do feel like I’ve learned a lot of valuable lessons during our 3 year tenure, and would love to impart some potentially beneficial wisdom onto those of you considering starting your own show. So let’s get started!
The world of podcasting is an interesting place, as you can imagine, for both producers and listeners alike. Since this audio medium is still relatively new, it’s constantly evolving, especially with it being a part of internet content. A big contribution to the evolution of podcasts has been its insane growth in popularity over the last several years. People love listening to podcasts because they’re available at any time, it’s better than radio, and it opens up the possibility for people to have long-form conversations without obnoxious interruptions. And if you’ve been thinking about starting your own podcast, it’s a great time for that as well. Between the costs of getting it off the ground and running, the ease of production, and the bounty of hosting providers, it’s never been easier and more streamlined to host a podcast.
What is up, my fellow nerds? It’s your host here, David Dassau. In lieu of taking this week off from releasing episodes of the podcast, I thought it would be fun to reflect on everything that has transpired in 2019, in an attempt to ready ourselves for the roaring Twenties!
As I have mentioned several times by now during episodes of the podcast, in more ways than one, this year has by far been the craziest for the show.
