Get Involved

Doing the podcast is fun and all, but let's be honest, listening to the 2 of us talk to each other can get repetitive, so we look to you, the iFanboy listeners to participate in the podcast! "How can I get in on the fun?" you may ask yourself, well here's how:

  • E-Mail us at contact@ifanboy.com with any questions, comments or anything that may be on your mind.

Please don't forget to leave your name and where you're writing from and each week, we'll pick the best e-mails to include on the podcast!


  1. Wow, I really like that song. Does anyone know where I can find the name of the artist and song? 😉


    I’ll get mi coat.

  2. Hey, a shout-out for my favorite phone app, Pocket Casts! I only wish the PotW show notes we nicely formatted in the app like they are in the web page. Can you guys do some HTML/RSS magic to fix that? (I’ve actually written to the app developers about this, but no specific response…)

    Thanks for another great show.

    • I agree with the formatting issue. I use podcast addict for android and despite it’s name it is a very competent app that handles most feed info with all appropriate formatting. IFanboy shows up as one long run on sentence.

  3. I’m not a Valiant fan at all but I really enjoyed Britannia #1 so I’m glad to hear the next issue is great too. I’m gonna wait for the trade on Reborn though because not enough happened in the first issue to make me think the issues will be capable of entertaining on their individual merits.

  4. Come on lads, the jokes about Lois being a technological dinosaur were amusing, but you know she’s not actually from the past – she moved earths, she’s lived the years just like the rest of us. And she didn’t just decide to steal New 52 Lois’ life, she’s at the Planet reluctantly after a vision of younger, supposedly dead Lois.

  5. Late to the comments I guess :-/

    I for one have been enjoying Amazing Spider-Man and don’t feel Slott’s worn out his welcome.

    I mean, I am so disappointed in the out-of-left-field Black Cat stuff, am cautiously pessimistic about the Prowler’s new status quo, and downright HATE the glowing spider to a Josh Flanagan degree, but still…

    But it’s weird to say that it’s the “same thing” when there are just as many comments that it’s all so “different,” like with Parker Industries, lack of familiar supporting cast, etc. Even after twenty years, is it still “too soon” for clones?
