Once upon a time, I believe this was gonna be the theme for a proposed sequel podcast to Dreck Fiction. But it was probably just that thing you fool around with when first opening GarageBand (MixCraft, in my case)

If you have any feedback for this special episode, shoot me an email — this will only be the first episode with Donovan, and maybe I’ll reach out to other guests in future editions, ambassadors for arenas in the mediascape whose expertise is much broader than mine.

  1. HAHA, you went with the title I suggest in jest! Happy to do it and will gladly do it again should you ever like me to!

    1. I think the next time, it’s gonna be movies, whether The D. Knight trilogy or whichever — I found myself a bit flat-affect on this episode (which is not unusual), but with the Year End shows, I was really able to formulate real replies and keep the conversation going. You were carrying this episode, and that burden should NOT fall to the special guest.

      Or, maybe when next we do this I’ll have read and studied enough comics to be on your level (uh-huh)
