Pick of the Week Podcast
Running Time: 01:05:48
July 18, 2010 – San Diego looms on the horizon as the iFanboy gents gather to discuss Josh's Pick of the Week and fend off the madness that is the San Diego Comic-Con for just a few more days. Luckily there are lots of comic books to distract them from all the laundry and prep work that still needs to be done before they reach the sunny shores of southern California.
