A Mighty Fine Listen
Ever been curious what a group of nerds without a specific topic, but with plenty to say on a diverse array of geeky subjects sounds like? Like this! You'll laugh, you'll cry, you may even throw up a little in your mouth... but you will never regret paying absolutely nothing to listen to it!
And I'm not saying that because I'm in it. Or because the Boss is threatening me. Or because I get paid by the word. I'm saying it because if I can laugh at myself, anyone can.
Geeky shenanigans abound
If you're like me, you love a good celebrations of all things geek. 42cast covers such a wide range I can imagine there'd be something for everyone to enjoy. Film, TV, comics, games, books and literature, you name it! The show is lots of fun, but it also really digs deep into its topics for some thought provoking discussion. Highly recommended.
I have really enjoyed your broad topics and connections of how nerds, like myself, connect to shows made for us! I look forward to what you have for us for the future.
