Episode 28 : A Pronunciation Guide to Celtic Mythos (not really…)

Episode 28 : A Pronunciation Guide to Celtic Mythos (not really…)

This week, your favorite hosts (or hosts you tolerate) discuss Celtic mythology and legends. Ever wondered what is the origin story of the fairies? Ever truly wanted to mispronounce an entire language? In this episode, we’ve got you, and we may have figured out where the phrase “keeping your cool” originates. No, no one googled to see if we were correct; we are content in our illogical conjecture.

Make sure to check out our other episodes where we don’t insult an entire culture’s language, and leave us a review on your favorite podcast platform! We’re everywhere!

      Episode 26: Schrodinger’s Podcast

      In our last segment in the multiverse we take on iterations and variations of characters, comics, stories, and ourselves. What does diversity in the multiverse mean when it comes to inclusion and how has culture changed to accommodate the changing landscape of America’s culture? It’s true; we wax serious in this episode. But don’t worry; Bawoo managed to hit the surge protector and restart our comedic “genius.”

                  Lumber Jack

                  Brian has embraced his new Nickname given to him by our YouTube buddy isuckcalfmuscles; The Littlest Lumber Jack. With that new nickname he will try and grow his beard as big as he can because the harsh winter days of Florida are coming. Bringing in these Winter Days were the Thanksgiving and Black Friday where the boys went and saw family. They did a little Black Friday shopping online and traveled for the majority of it.

                  Avengers

                  What Nerd Podcast isn’t complete with out a little talk about the Avengers Infinity Trailer where Pittsburgh Nerd Podcast talk about it as well. We see Bearded Cap which is awesome because Chris Evans looks hot in a beard, Scarlet Johansson as a Blonde Widow  and the biggest question question what is up with Thanos. We mostly talk about that because we know everyone has over analyzed and we don’t want to be those guys.

                    Marvelette Missives – Slugfest

                    Whether you’re a fan of the tv shows, the movies or the comic books themselves, you know about the decades-long rivalry between Marvel and DC. Yes, they are obviously competitors in the same market, but it’s always been a little bit more than that. The products they sell may be the same on a basic level, but there’s always been a “mine is better than yours” attitude between the companies and the fans of their work. And for the fans who, like me, love finding out about behind the scenes details, there’s a great new book on the history of these two comic book giants.  More

                            Out of Control

                            After a few weeks off, Brian and Cody catch up with all the out of control fandoms. We start off on 10/29 with the madness of the SNES Classic release. After that it was out to Tampa for MegaCon and beer. Brian enjoyed and reviewed his experience for that weekend including the can’t miss Jay and Silent Bob Get Old.

                            Fandom Hell

                            One of the themes we noticed at Megacon Tampa and in general was the amount of Funko Pop and Rick & Morty things everywhere. McDonald’s released the fabled Szechuan Sauce and the Rabid Rick & Morty fans went crazy. They are not a smart fan base.

                             

                            Video Games

                            We talk about Cuphead and how much the style and  hardness make it a great game. Brian Talks about how much he joy he is going through playing the SNES classic especially Super Mario Land.

                                This week Cody called out but never fear Matt is here is fill in his Throne.

                                Throne of TV

                                We talk about our experiences with the all mighty Rickmobile, that made a pit stop in Orlando. By the way it was a crazy experience for both of them. Each one both agree lines suck.

                                Throne of Comics

                                After the Rickmobile came the Jason Aaron signing. Brian had to work most of it since it was at his job but Matt was able to experience the fastpass line. They talk about how Jason Aaron is different from what he looks like and is the most badass comic writer the both know. 

                                Throne of Smut

                                Matt and Brian go head to head for the king of Smut. Both dabble in the realm of the messed up ideas because they are messed up. They include Elvis, octopuses, poop and more.

                                 

                                Lastly big thanks to Matt for coming on and filling in for Cody because this was a week not to miss.

                                  In this episode, join the Free Rotation hosts as we talk about movies vs their original form (books, manga, video games, series). Admittedly, this is an enormous topic but we are small minded enough to narrow it down to the ones that no one cares about- except us! How did books to movies like The Giver, IT, and Twilight stand up… wait.. did we talk about that?! The answer is fifty shades of “oh, yes, we did!”
