Host Derek Coward features clips from:
Gotham Knights Online
Batgirl To Oracle: The Barbara Gordon Podcast
Host Derek Coward talks about his preferred style of comic book podcasting, the so called controversy surrounding the iFanboy podcast and why he will never appear on a roundtable comic book podcast again.
The 87th episode of Geek Brunch has somehow morphed into Family Brunch as Mike and Heath talk about how cool kids are and how much work jumping in those inflatable tents really is. Also discussed: Empanadas, cake, mixed ethnic foods, Star Trek, Up, and TV’s Erik Estrada. Okay, everything but Erik Estrada. He’s next time.
This week, we are joined by Carlos from his secret underwater lair as we discuss the usual batch of geekery, plus chop shops and Adventures in Babysitting. Be warned, this episode suffers from some audio problems.
On episode 79, Mike and Heath talk about the Friday night cartoons, Heath Ledger’s Oscar nomination, and laughing in the bathroom.
Heath and Mike, solo (duo?) once again, discuss the usual crop of comics, movies, tv, and edibles. Be warned, this contains spoilers for just about everything: Astounding Wolf Man, Jumper, Eagle Eye, The Sixth Sense, Dallas, who killed Laura Palmer, where’s the beef, what happened to the lost colony of Roanoke, how Tupac faked his death, the truth behind the Hoffa mystery, how Elvis is really alive, Where Jim Morrison has been for the last few decades, which came first, the chicken or the egg, and what women really want. We answer and spoil it all. Bon Apetit!
Hosts Heath Holland and Mike Myers are joined by Bill, DBM on the forums for episode 76 of Geek Brunch. This show features the song “Grandpa Never Banged A Kangaroo” by Baron Von Lichtenstein. If you can come up with something more interesting than that, feel free… I’m tapped out of show notes.
Host Derek Coward finishes his look at the best of 2008 by talking about the titles that he has heard good things about but has never checked out yet, best miniseries that didn’t finish in 2008, best #1 comics of 2008 and the best graphic novels.

Mike and Heath ring in the new year with episode 75 of Geek Brunch, featuring our holiday wrap up and a sneak preview of the second season of the Feedback Audio Adventures from friend of the show Alan, aka NewMutant. Here’s to 2009!
There might be shows this week, but I’m not sure what they will be. I am positive that there will not be a new Indie Comic Book Noise, Marvel Noise, Geek Brunch, DC Noise, Comics Playground, Rocky Mountain Comic Book Noise, Welcome to Heavenside, Mage: The Hero Discussed, PPRD or The Fury of Iron Fist.
I’m not sure about Comic Book Noise, Burning Trash, The Shade’s Journal, The Number One Comic Book Show or Comic Book Noise Talks, but I am leaning towards probably not.
I was going to do a mad rush of podcasts like I seem to do every end of the year, but since I have already reached Episode 150, I have nothing to shoot for. I think it would be impossible for even me to do 48 episodes in three days.
So use this time to catch up on older shows, check out our cousins The Trip, Eye Of The Storm or Teenage Wasteland or check out Friends of the Family like Collected Comics Library, Komicskast, Comic Book Attic, Comic Book Savant, 11 O Clock Comics, Comic Geek Speak, Raging Bullets, Geek Syndicate, Comics Addiction, THOOM, Comic Book Road Show, DaFixer’s Hideout, Podcast X, Comic Timing or The Pop Cult Online. I’m pretty sure that they make podcasts that don’t deal with comic books but I’m not sure.
Most of all, sit back and relax. We’ll be back to a regular schedule pretty soon.
UPDATE: The Shade’s Journal will definitely be posted on Monday.
UPDATE 2: According to host Eric Martin, DC Noise will definitely be posted on Friday.
