Episode 60. My Mom the Potential Hoarder.



Download podcast here.

No, this episode is not really about our moms as potential hoarders. It's ACTUALLY about the 2005 movie Elektra. But it ends up being about our moms. And their potential as hoarders. Because that's how we roll around here. Darin and I eviscerate the horror that is Elektra, and we barely make it out alive the other side. Believe us - it's not pretty. But it is funny. Oh yeah! And don't miss out on Matthew's best review yet - X-Men #9. It's a winner all around.

What are you thinking about? Tell us. Here. Facebook. Twitter. E-mail. We want to know. We'll have a normal episode for you next week, kids. Promise.

Episode 59. The Cutoff Hoodie.



Download podcast here.

Hey, we got together after all. Over the Skype. Stupid the internets - wasn't working earlier in the week. But we made it work. We talk: more Superior Spider-Man prognostications. Thoughts on Age of Ultron. What is Punk Rock Jesus all about? How will Murphy end it? Avengers Assemble subverts gender expectations in a beautiful way. We dissect the other Marvel NOW titles. Braeden contemplates dumping Buffy comics, which is a madness unlike any other. Saga is always exceptional, and this month is no exception. And much more - you know how it is. Also, Matthew's review of X-Men #8.

What are you thinking about our new version? Worth it? Let us know here, Facebook, Twitter, e-mail. You know the system.

Big news: re-imagining the podcast. Check back weekly for new episodes - no more five-days-a-week. Thoughts on the Star Wars Episode VII writer announcement.

More Superman love from you-know-who. Trepidation about Marvel NOW. You'll still hear Matthew's reviews every week. So listen to X-Men #7 as he sees it. And other things.

Special: John Graham Kickstarter Advice

We have a very special episode for you today, which is a two-part interview with John Graham (of Holiday Hooligans fame) all about how to successfully fund a Kickstarter campaign! He has been able to do it more than once, and was willing to sit down and chat with panelist Darin all about how to do it well. (He also was kind enough to write out some advice which we've posted here on our blog.)

We hope this helps! And stay tuned for our next episode, which will herald some big changes here in the Between the Bubbles world. If you want more info on this, contact us here, at our Facebook and Twitter pages, or e-mail us or John. We'd love to give you some advice!
