225. Is Star Trek really Progressive?

In this episode we introduce Tayler to Star Trek, and have a discussion about if it is actually as progressive as it seems on the outside or is it a benevolent authoritarian society, and does that really matter? Nik went Far From Home and talks about Spider-Man. Was it as good as the first one? Should Kids watch it? Most great Sci-Fi Novels have become movies, but not all great Sci-Fi Movies have been based on a book. Branden plays…

Rom-Com’s worth watching – Ep 207

In this episode Nik, Tayler and Branden talk about some of their favorite Rom Com’s of all time.  There is some overlap in picks but the reasons are all so very different.  Join us as we talk about Time traveling rom-coms, Batman related Rom Coms and there is a Rom Com lurking in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Our lists include: 10 Things I hate about you How to Lose a guy in 10 days Serendipity When Harry met Sally Kate…

Spider-Man N’waaar – Episode 175

We’ve already established that Nik doesn’t see color, but apparently he doesn’t see shades of gray either.  We have some Spider-Man Noir news that might make you go, “Wait. What?” Nik brings Batman to a Spider-Man fight, Legendary comic creator Steve Ditko has passed away.  Jeff and Branden test Nik’s casting ability with some uncanny results (Really he should be working for Disney even though the image turned out to be a hoax.) Gal Gadot’s latest actions should be mandatory…

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…

Spider-Man: HomeWrecker

You don’t want to miss this episode. Not only do we give away the Sexy Jeff Goldblum Funko Pop, Nik is in rare form. First he calls Star Wars a pair of socks, then he calls Spider-Man a Homewrecker, and then he makes fun of a long time Star Trek producer.  Okay, maybe we all made fun of a long time Star Trek producer.

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…

All Spider-Men Look Alike

Episode 123 Spider-Man Homecoming came out and we enjoyed it but that doesn’t keep us from finding some things to talk about.  Including Easter Eggs, MJ is not THAT MJ, Diversity in Comics, Marvel’s goodwill from fans and apparently, Nik can’t tell the difference between Asians or Spider-Men.
