Jake and Alva sit down to tear Frank Miller’s SIN CITY A DAME TO KILL FOR completely to shreds! The film nearly 10 years in the making is so bad that a fair portion of the episode is dedicated to alternative films you could watch instead. (*Audio Quality Alert: Jake’s mike got garbled during recording so his feed came in sounding like he recorded in a tin garbage can. We apologize, but felt the episode was good enough to release even with these issues. The next episode should have no such problems! Enjoy)

This Episode is dedicated to Robin Williams who tragically took his own life last week. The episode is less a commentary on Mr. Williams as a look at depression and anxiety and how important it is to seek help. Trigger warnings for depression, anxiety, and suicide as I speak in a fair amount of detail on the subjects. ~Jake

We lost an amazing actor this week so Jacob decided to do an episode as a sort of eulogy. A little discourse on celebrity deaths and films released posthumously as well as some recommendations on Philip Seymour Hoffman’s best work.

We’re alive! It’s a new year and we’re back from hiatus with a great episode discussing fandoms and radical elements in nerd culture. Jake and Alva are joined by writer Meredith Nudo and artists Jessi Jordan and Isaiah Broussard to discuss what makes some fans go so crazy for their favorite shows. (Just a quick FYI; the compression on the initial recording went haywire so the audio isn’t really up to snuff but the discussion is really amazing. We promise it’ll get better next week)
