Up from the depths... 30 decibels high... Breathing Fire! It’s the Sunnyside Podcast Show! They’re back! Re-join your hosts PJ Holden (usually found drawing Judge Dredd for the galaxy’s greatest comic), Scott Ferguson (more often buried deep in his digital studio colouring Game of Thrones or your favourite indie film) and Ron Abernethy (hopeless technology magpie) as they talk about whatever pop culture has to offer. Featuring interviews with top comic creators, film, comic and tv reviews with a decidedly Northern Ireland slant, see if Ron and Scott can keep the show on-plan while not being derailed by whatever lunacy is floating around PJ’s semi-lucid brain-pan.

||Explicit027 - 93%||We're back after a week off (cough Ron cough) and PJ has been to New York for NYCC. We chat about A Matter of Life & Death because Scott can't stick to the plan, and realise that it should defnitely have been a Classic.||18 10 2018||Free||View in iTunes|

||Explicit020 - Anecdote-A-Rama||We mostly just listen to PJ reading from his diary, which leads us down a rabbit hole of intersecting anecdotes. You'd think this show could have some sort of a central theme, but it's rapidly becoming clear it doesn't.||23 8 2018||Free||View in iTunes|

My Pick of the Week
PJ, Scott and Ron bring a slice of laughter, tech, comics, films and all things pop culture to my earholes every week. Think of a Northern Irish Tell Em Steve Dave. Give them a listen, you won't be dissapointed.
This podcast is a genuine highlight of the week, providing really good insights to movies, comics and other fun things that you may have missed, whilst not shying away from honest opinions and thoughtful discussion - all the while never far from collapsing into hysterics.
When geeks grow up
Been listening to these shows for years (minus the gap years) and the return was most welcomed.
The first few episodes had their laughs and insights as expected but it kind of felt like we were still trying to get to know each other again.
Episode 18 - ‘he ain’t heavy’ is the game changer. Open and honest conversations around mental health and social anxiety.
Oh and a few laughs thrown into the mix!
Don’t go missing again lads!!!
