Weird Science DC Comics Podcast Episode 52: Stolen Valor

Weird Science DC Comics Podcast Episode 52: Stolen Valor

Jim and Eric celebrate the New Year (and one year of podcasting) with their usual comics talk, stories and utter nonsense.  Eric went to a New Year’s Eve party, but Jim takes a walk down memory lane as he recounts some past New Years of his own.  It’s all about Y2K and stolen valor.  He still doesn’t understand how it happened, but Eric rips into him all the same.  The two finally get into this week’s DC Comic Books, but make sure they offend everyone with their Indian rain dances and nonsense.  It’s another long one for the #hardestworkingguysinpodcasting…enjoy!

Weird Science DC Comics Podcast Ep 51: Not So Christmas Cheer

Jim and Eric get together the day after Christmas and they are not in a jolly mood.  Maybe they didn’t get the presents they wanted or they are still reeling from last week’s “Dildo Incident”, but they certainly don’t agree much.  Eric gives a sort of update on Stinky Jamie and Jim just wants to end it all.  They do manage to talk about a ton of books and continue being the #hardestworkingguysinpodcasting.  Enjoy!

Weird Science DC Comics Podcast Ep 50: What a Dildo!

Weird Science DC Comics Podcast Ep 50: What a Dildo!

It’s Star Wars weekend so Jim and Eric talk…DC Comics.  Yep, they stick with their mission statement and talk about every DC Comics comic book that came out this week.  The podcast may be filled with Superman, Batman, and the Justice League, but Eric’s girlfriend steals the show with her podcast debut and it’s a doozy.  In fact, it literally took Jim’s breath (and ability to speak) away.  We all hope that Eric is still alive and that you all enjoy the show.
