Episode 403: American Idle

Taylor Hicks on American IdolSteve has never watched the majesty and pageantry of American Idol, but with YOUR VOTES (or reviews on iTunes), we can change that. Once Jason is finished running down his brief (but not brief enough) history with the now-ending show, the second segment brings webcomics.

The guys chat about Randall Munroe’s next book, Thing Explainer, Rice Boy returning for a commentary-laden rerun season, John Allison’s latest comic, and some Order of the Stick plot predictions. Vote for your favorite topic when the lines open … NOW.

Episode 402: My Apologies, Buy a Font

Play times for Splatoon Global TestfireWhen you have a random week, your podcast follows suit. True to form, the guys chat about the wise teachings of Bob’s Burgers, Jason’s involvement in the recent Splatoon Global Testfire (not a fart joke, sorry), and Steve using Mortal Kombat X to come to terms with a life-long fear of Freddy Krueger.

In the second segment, it’s time to get serious and focused, with topics like the return of Robot Pirates and Atland, and what they mean to the webcomics landscape together. Also, there is an infinite canvas comic out now (The Boat) that you must see to believe. After the outro, Steve owns up to his selfish ice cream consumption and the guys invent the flash mob tandem cropdust (that is a fart joke, also sorry).

The second segment is dedicated to Demon, Tragedy Series, The Trenches, and Owlturd, all webcomics that are worth your time for various reasons. Post-outro, we find out just why Jason seems to be off his game and why you should never have kids (but you totally should).
