Episode 106: X-Men Is Her Rushmore


This week, Rhea and Destiny are joined by friend of the show/cartoonist/actress/local improv queen Tracie Mauk! We recorded this on a hotel bed in Kansas City, MO on the 2nd night of Planet Comicon, our bellies full of pizza and trashy vodka drinks. We talk about the good and bad side of cosplay, speculate on why Doctor Who is so dang popular, and the ineffable connection that fans have with fictional worlds and characters, even though consumerism is A Thing.

Episode 105: Totally Alone


This week, Destiny was a bit under the weather so Rhea ventured into podcatting TOTALLY ALONE, where no one can hear you scream. Listen to Rhea ramble about comics, yaoi manga, video games and books about DEATH. There's also an extra special song!

Corrections: The Marvel Netflix show is called AKA Jessica JONES, not AKA Jessica Drew. There are too many Jessicas in Marvel. Also there should also be a show about Jessica Drew (aka Spider-Woman).
