iFanboy Patron Hangout – August 2020 … Still Open To All! Plus the Pre-Hangout Tiki Happy Hour!

In light of what is on-going around the world, the general anxiety as a result of, and the fact that a lot of people are socially isolating and stuck inside, we made the decision to keep the monthly Patron Hangouts open to the general audience while we’re all in lockdown.


The official Patron Hangout show starts at 6pm PT / 9pm ET, but come by early for the Extra Long Pre-Hangout iFanboy Tiki Happy Hour with Conor (and perhaps special guests), which should start around 4pm PT / 7pm PT.

There is an embedded video player below so that you can watch it here. There will also be an embedded chat room widget below the video so you can follow along the action. The show will also be available to watch live on YouTube, and that page will also have a chat room which will be the same as the chat room embedded here. You have options!

Enjoy the two hours of nonsense shows!

  1. Could one of you great folks link the Dr. Graffin ” highly offensive 2 paragraphs about Green Day” you were referring to please?

  2. This is a comment made publicly on the internet and I know I’m going to get roasted for it, but I have to call out a comment made during this video hangout.

    While discussing the recent, untimely, and tragic of actor Chadwick Boseman, Mr. Flanagan made a comment suggesting Denzel Washington’s son, John David Washington, might somehow be glad Boseman had died. This is offensive on many levels, including the insinuation that there can be only one Black, male, A-list actor at a time. As an African-American man, I found this remark to be grossly insensitive, offensive, racist, and just plain inappropriate. It was unfortunate – but not surprising – to see the rest of the iFanboy crew just kind of laugh this off.

    Being Black in this country and dealing with its racism is no joke, and even the insinuation that another Black thespian is somehow happy for the demise of another? I know it was meant in jest – but in no way, shape, or form was this sentiment funny.

    I’ve respected iFanboy’s work in covering the comic book industry over the years, but this incident…wow. It definitely changes my perception of this group. The trolls can come for me, but I’ll be moving on.

    • Hey Rod,

      You know what? You’re right. When you’re doing the live show, you have a lot of thoughts about what to say next, and sometimes a thought occurs and I have to decide “is this something I want to say?” and maybe toe the line of being on the edge, but yeah, I don’t feel good about that one.

      I’m sorry that it’ll affect your view of the work we did, and certainly who I am, but I’m not going to defend it.

      Also, I’m sorry if I made you feel shitty. That’s absolutely not the point of what the show was about, and that’s on me. I’ll do my best to learn from it. I don’t think you deserve and roasting, and it’s a fair point.

      Thanks, and please accept my apology.
