First of all, sorry everyone – there was no mini-sode last week. We’ll be picking up with those again shortly, after the Media-Feed crew finished a well-deserved vacation! But before that, we’re going to serve up the most recent podcast. We watched American Ninja for The Attic, an awesomely bad 1980s action/ninja movie starring Michael Dudikoff. For The Spotlight, we’ll be talking about Sin City – the graphic novels and the movies. Toward the end, Rob will give his review of The Expendables 3, but first – let’s get into the news!
Musings of a Geek would like to announce a brand new show from the hosts of Jerk Zeus Radio!
Sad Robot Radio is a show which will hopefully inspire others and raise awareness for those suffering from Depression. Millions of people suffer from depression and anxiety. Millions of people are struggling with alcoholism and drug abuse. This is a place for people with these ailments to come and hear that they aren’t alone. There are others just like you who have tried to commit suicide, abused drugs, let their live be consumed by alcohol. Each week we will tell stories of our own experiences as well as engage our audience and let them tell their tales. Want to get your story out there? Email them at email@example.com.
With that, Ryan will be hanging up his hat and leaving Jerk Zeus Radio behind so we bit a fond farewell to that show. However, we are extremely happy that he is still hanging out with the Musings of a Geek Network!
Want to check out the new show? Go ahead and click on the link in the Podcast menu above!
Things get started out with Doc and VF’s attempt to get to the bottom of Nickel’s curious twitter activity leading up to Episode 30. Grease-stained pants almost bring an end to a 7-year relationship, Doc goes camping, and VF discovers the internets and re-kindles his love of He-Man, and after all that gets discussed in detail, we eventually discuss comics. If you want to know why Graphic Novice never has guests from the comic book industry, listen to the comic news segment preceding Rapid-Fire Review.
After alienating more listeners and potential listeners, the guys discuss Batman and Robin 34, Batman Eternal #20, Teen Titans #2, Dark Engine #2, The Fade Out #1, Manifest Destiny #9, Peter Panzerfaust #20, Protectors Inc. #8, Supreme Blue Rose #2, Trees #4, The Wicked + The Divine #3, All-New X-Factor #12, Deadly Hands of Kung-Fu #4, Magneto #8, New Avengers #23, Nova #20, Storm #2, and Grimm Fairly Tales Presents Robyn Hood #1.
The rest of the show segments get postponed due to time, and Doc promises to add some articles to the GraphicNovice.com website. The show wraps up with a summary of the books we’ll be reading from the August 27, 2014 release date. We get in under 2.5 hours in what might be our last episode prior to some sweeping format changes. Spoiler: We’re not actually going to change anything.

Meg of the Mindians Minute podcast and Amy of the Culture Babble podcast team up to do a podcast on all things Outlander plus some. Meg is a longtime die hard fan of the book series by Diana Gabaldon and has been waiting to see it on screen for years. Amy just finished her first reading of the first book in time for the start of the show. In this first episode they talk about their expectations of the show, their opinions on casting, and what they hope to see from future episodes.
Matt and John welcome Sean and Roy from the Moving the Needle podcast for a fun chat about the greatest Rock & Roll movie soundtracks of all time! The guys talk about how the likes of Wes Anderson and Quentin Tarantino use music to strengthen their stories, and touch on the most memorable music moments from some of their favorite films. What musicians have appeared in more movies than most? Have The Rolling Stones overstayed their welcome? All this, and much more! That'll Play.
After management scolds the guys, co-host Nickel starts things out by pitching the most inappropriate but erotic contest in the podcast's short history. We try to go through all the shows on the Musings of a Geek Podcast Network and fail miserably (sorry shows that we missed). Marvel Fact Files, Scott Snyder's new upcoming series "Wytches", CGC (graded comic books) and the upcoming East of West One-Shot Encyclopedia/Atlas, all get some discussion (41 minutes worth) before we get to the bi-weekly Walking Dead Trade Paperback Disucssion where we look at TPB #5 (Issues 25-30). After discussing the gruesome events of the aforementioned Walking Dead books, we move on to the barely anticipated and unaptly named “Rapid-Fire Review” segment. The books on the list from August 13 include Crossed Badlands #59, Hexed #1, Batman #34, Batman Eternal #19, Birds of Prey #34, Harley Quinn #9, New Suicide Squad #2, My Little Pony Friendship is Magic #22, Sex Criminals #7, Starlight #5, All-New X-Men #30, Amazing Spiderman #5, Amazing X-Men #10, Captain America #23, Fantastic Four #8, Inhuman #3, Nightcrawler #5, Original Sin #7, Spider-Man 2099 #2, United States of Murder Inc. #4, Wolverine #11, Wolverine #11, Wolverine and the X-Men #7, X-Force #8, X-Men #18, Armor Hunters #3, and Thief of Thieves #23. After sharing their thoughts on all the books we quickly recap the best and worst choices for the week, and the ongoing plus/minus stats. As always, we look ahead to the following week's books (released August 20, 2014) before calling it a night just short of the 3-hour mark. Ironically, there was some discussion of cutting down to a 1-hour podcast prior to the show...
