New Stuff Coming…

Hey Everybody!

It’s been a little while.  Don’t worry, we haven’t forgotten you.

Cool stuff is Coming Soon.  We’ve recorded episodes with Jared (Watchmen), Tim (Punisher), Leah (Spider-Man) and special guest Amy (She was on the set of Captain America: Winter Soldier!).

I am working hard to get the episodes edited and to you.  I promise to have one out by the 15th.

I will soon be recording a very, very special episode with a guest so cool I can’t believe we got her.  Seriously, it’s amazing.  Can’t wait to tell you more.

Anyhoo, please take a sec to take our Poll on the what film franchise should be fixed next.

Take Care
