The fact that the radio show happens to share the exact same name to the blog that I'm now contributing to? Yeah, not even a little bit of a coincidence.
The fact that my first two guests are the founders of said website? Slightly more of a coincidence.
One of the two guests is the Novel Ninja, Matthew Bowman, who I briefly "SWATted" during the latter end of the Sad Puppies war.
As you can tell from the title of the show, I'm going to be covering topics that are either nerd or Catholic related. This of course means that I will never, ever cover politics .... And if you believe that one, I'm sorry. I am so, so sorry.
Some of this schedule is a work in progress, but I will be updating these as we go along.
We counted nine comic book shows, went over the attacks on Joss Whedon, Sad Puppies, Daredevil, Pope Francis, Sens8, and anything else we thought we could jam into the show.
