Cash Grab News – Episode 174

Despite what the title of this episode is we at the Fandom Podcast firmly believe that the entertainment industry is about great story telling and the cash comes in because of that (Yes Jeff I will keep believing that.) Fandoms are the things that we love and the things that we hold close to our hearts. They are the things that make us who we are. You should have a fandom. If you don’t then find a one, and once you…

That’s Fake News… isn’t it?

Episode 145: This week there is lots of news, but most of it kept us wondering, “Wait… that’s real?” From Detective Pikachu to Quentin Tarantino directing the next Star Trek movie and Patrick Stewart saying that he’d come back for that we feel like we may have jumped into a mirror universe. From the Feedback Jared Elder Pic From William You guys asked for some nonwhite male characters to add to your list. I’m very disappointed you guys didn’t think…

Naughty & Nice from across the Fandomverse

Sure, Santa can make a list, and check it twice, but can he find a place for the Fandomverse’s most morally ambiguous characters?  Don’t worry big guy, we have you covered.  We try to figure out whether the Hulk, Walter White, Han Solo, Rocket Raccoon, and others belong in the Naughty List or the Nice List.  Along the way, we have some fun discussion about morality and Force Ghosts, Ends and Means, and Branden tries to twist Jeff’s words all…

Who Defends the Defenders?

Episode 129 – The Defenders wasn’t perfect but it wasn’t that bad either.  In Marvel’s latest Netflix Property a team of rag tag (don’t call me) Heroes join forces to defeat an enemy bigger than themselves, and in this episode of the Fandom Podcast a team of rag tag Podcasters join forces to discuss the series?  Coincidence?  Absolutely not, we’ve talked about all the rest of them why would we stop now?  Our opinions are mixed and one of us is…

Cord Cutters, Shavers and Nevers Unite! Episode 47

Everyone has different methods and on this episode we share ours. After the news and scheduling we talk about the Good, bad and ugly of cord cutting; the quick, cheap, and good philosophy and the difference between…

Hogwarts House Sorting – Episode 39

Here’s my theory. The Harry Potter trio are actually representations of the other houses. Hermione is Ravenclaw, Ron is Hufflepuff, and Harry is Slytherin. They’re all in Gryffindor because they asked. In fact, everyone in that house could have been in another houses if they hadn’t asked to be in Gryffindor. You have be ask to be in Gryffindor because their most defining feature is bravery, and anyone can choose to be brave. So what does it mean to be…
