Those Two Geeks: Episode Three

The hosts of the podcast formerly known as Gotham Weekly return with a new name and a new episode count as they move aware from being a Batman centric podcast into the wider world of geekdom. Think of it as our very own Rebirth!

This week Alex and Joe sit down to talk about the first two episodes of Game Of Thrones a little about the comics we picked up this week, and then a tangent that can most easily be described as the state of Marvel Comics, and how a strong Marvel and a strong DC benefits everybody.

As always, the Alex and Joe can be found on twitter respectively @karcossa and @jc_hesh if you have suggestions for a future Comic Club comic for them to check out.

Those Two Geeks: Episode Two

The hosts of Gotham Weekly return with a new name and a new episode count as they move aware from being a Batman centric podcast into the wider world of nerd and geekdom. Think of it as our very own Rebirth!

But don’t worry, Bat-fans, once again despite the new name there’s still a lot of Batman talk this week  as Alex and Joe sit down to talk about some of the things from SDCC that caught their eye, Superman #27, Batman #27, 

This week’s Comic Club (the feature we don’t name in the actual podcast), in which our hosts assign a comic to the other in order to discuss it on the episode should have been Kill or Be Killed #1 and  Dark Days: The Casting #1, but if you’re wondering where it is, the segment never made to the episode due to time constraints.

Gotham Weekly With Alex And Joe Episode Eight

You may notice that we skipped an episode, and that’s because after talking for an hour or more we found out too late that the recording software didn’t capture anything… so in honour of that Lost Episode we’re skipping a number.

Anyway, after a longer than planned hiatus (one day we will live up to the Weekly part of the name), Alex and Joe are back with more Batman chat and their customary tangents!

Recorded on the 18th of June, this week the topics on the block are:

Dark Days: The Forge #1 The one shot to kick off DC’s next great mini series.

Batman #24: The issue that’s on everyone’s lips! Did Batman propose…?

Adam West, and the legacy of a great man.
