Plus, Patty Jenkins’ fight to get equal pay to direct Wonder Woman 2, the Star Wars and Gremlins sequels in development, and why Ric hates sleep. T2J: As reliable as a cable TV repairman, but funnier!
Our latest mini-sode covers the fun and sometimes headache-inducing world of fan and comic book conventions, and we brought in an expert on the topic: Founder and COO of Awesome Con, Ben Penrod! We’re discussing everything from the changing state of comic sales at conventions to security, crowd issues and keeping Doctor Who actors safe in the bathroom! Plus, Conor McGregor’s camp breaks an unwritten rule and costs him a sparring partner, and Tim Tebow (nearly) ended up back in the NFL. T2J: When someone says you’re “The Taco,” it’s generally not a good thing!
We’re finally to Volume 8! The jerks run down the NFL QB carousel and baseball Hall of Famer Goose Gossage’s “interesting” take on the state of the game today. Plus, a break down of the two trailers for the new Ghostbusters, early positive reviews for Batman v. Superman, and something else we forgot–oh, wait–SPIDER-MAN! Also, you don’t want to miss Tom’s car story. You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, you’ll feel a lot better about your own life!
