As a bonus, find out which of the Jerks doesn’t know much about microphones! T2J and SDCC: they go together like PB and J!
In this latest mini-sode, the Jerks get a firsthand report on Tim Tebow’s minor league baseball exploits and Chris gets convinced to play fantasy football. Plus, a review of Spider-Man: Homecoming, and a discussion of the changing state of San Diego Comic-Con and other comic conventions. It’s deep, it’s contentious, it’s funny — it’s a cornucopia of entertainment!
The Jerks have a nice laugh at the expense of Taylor Heinicke, Tim Tebow and Chris Sale. Plus, they break down UFC 201, recap San Diego Comic-Con, and review Batman: The Killing Joke. It’s the podcast for people who thought Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow had some redeeming qualities!
Our first ever Mini-Episode focuses entirely on all the HUGE news from this year’s Comic-Con International: San Diego!
