This week, your host who only knows what he's doing about half the time, Eric Ratcliffe originally recorded a Doctor Who specific episode with Gordon Dymowski and Jeremy Wiggins where it was a 90 minute spectacular of nerd knowledge. Sadly, in the middle of editing that episode, the computer died and I was unable to retrieve it from the computer.

So this episode, we are on a new laptop (graciously given to our hero by his mother) while h's joined by Jeremy and Russell Burlingame for a late night edition of the podcast as the guys talk an insane amount of topics (We seriously cover a lot of ground). Everything from Christo Gage's Wildstorm to our most anticipated books for the new DCU!

Wait...episode 29? Maybe we should go back to original numbering and we'd be over 50. Anyways, welcome to yet another edition of the Why I Love Comics podcast. As you'll hear me in the episode, my partners in crime were elsewhere this week and I have gained some newer music recently, so I decided to do another nerdy music episode! Prepare yourselves, listeners, as we jump across the musical multiverse from Electronic (Allcaps) to Rap (Childish Gambino) to acoustic (Amanda Palmer)! It's all here in this very special episode of the Why I Love Comics podcast!

Also, a warning to our more sensitive listeners, there is adult language in this episode.

Song #1 - The Kirby Krackle "Another New Crisis"

2:47 - Intro into the show by me

Song #2 - Childish Gambino "Be Alone"

http://www.childishgambino.blogspot.com/

Song #3 - Patrick Stump "Porcelain"

http://www.patrickstump.com/

(His solo album called Soul Punk comes out later this year. Information on the EP can be found on the site as well as Itunes)

Song #4 - All Caps "Don't Unplug Me"

http://allcapsband.com/

The fanmade music video that got me into the band by youtuber Meekakitty:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ck-z4-B8_5k

And her song Star Trek Girl that I forgot to put into the episode:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ryo-GtOgi7s (Sorry about that, Tessa!)

Song #5 - Neil Patrick Harris and Felicia Day "My Eyes" from Dr. Horrible's sing along blog

(really, internet, fail for you!) http://drhorrible.com/

19:06 - Intermission #1

Song #6 - MC Chris "QT"

http://www.mcchris.com/

Song #7 - Childish Gambino "Lights Turn On"

Also found on the EP with Be alone. Last minute of the song is incredibly epic, feels like a Rocky montage.

Song #8 - Beefy "I'm Not Superman"

http://beefyness.com/

Welcome to a very special edition of the podcast as we mix things up a bit. I'm joined by longtime friend and returning CR writer Russell Burlingame, freelance artist and part of the Feeding Ground crew Michael Lapinski and joker cosplayer extraordinaire Andre Beshta.

Now for those that don't listen regularly we had two recent shows with the Nerd Girls Eye View and the Feeding Ground crew where I determined that it's fun to have a crew on the show so I decided to let this madness occur. Think of us as a tough crowd/chelsea handler type of podcast. (I'll still be doing the interview episodes as well, I promise!)

In this very episode we discuss our celebrity look alike, the death of Wizard magazine (Russ was once an intern at Wizard and his insights are a great listen), upcoming comic movies and we're also talking about death in comics (Johnny Storm, the Dibny's) and we even cover a bit of Identity Crisis (and our general like of Brad Meltzer). Oh and Russ gives us a little more insight into the Sentry controversy that Wizard helped set up.

Also of note: Future shows will probably just focus on one topic but for this first one we jumped around a lot. Join us on the forums to discuss what we talked about, and definitely give us your thoughts!

Next time the crew gets together, we talk event books and the effects on the average comic reader!

In the second and final post con edition of the podcast I had the pleasure of being joined by the creative team of Return of the Dapper Men, Jim McCann and Janet Lee as well as Kill Audio, Coheed and Cambria and The Amory Wars Claudio Sanchez and Chondra Sanchez.

So sit back, pull up a chair and enjoy the chaos of NYCC this final time as we talk art, discover what is going on with Kill Audio and why Staves and Arrows isn't going anywhere anytime soon!

Alright so welcome to episode #8! As you can see this clocks in at about 2 hours, the reason being that I combined 2 shows into 1 due to the Christos Gage interview only being a half hour. So in this episode you get:

Christos Gage at a signing with a very fun interview for the first half hour of the show! We talk everything from working with Slott/Ross and his wife to what we can expect from the academy in the future!

Next we have 90 minutes with the NCD creative team as we talk about Champion city, the first collection, wrestling and the dreaded D word as I'm joined by Bill Gladman, Chad Strohl, Brant Fowler and Lisa Moore!

Next show I introduce you listeners to the creators of pocket god! and what their connections to comics are!

Talking to Fred Van Lente !

Welcome to episode #5 where there would have been a cold open with yours truly but... still trying to work out the show bugs. Hopefully for shows #7 and #8, we'll see if I can fix the program i'm using.

This week we were joined by the very awesome Fred Van Lente as we talk about Amadeus Cho, working with Greg pak and Jeff Parker, his twittring, his thoughts on Justified and Red Dead Redemption as well as the tease to the project that has since been announced!

Two things I wanted to point out: Mike Galusick was supposed to join me for this episode but sadly Skype seemingly hated both of us and we didn't appear online for each other. I've promised to make it up to him.

Also the teased project has been revealed as a Taskmaster mini! Which definitely has my attention. Also announced was the mini bringing back Hercules and a new incarnation of the god squad starting, I believe, in September! We will certainly be following up with Fred and he may bring someone along. Tune in for that future show.
