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. We all appreciate Tom King and we all really want to like his Batman.
    But personally I’ve come to the realization that his Batman just doesn’t work me.
    It’s just not the right fit.

  2. I fully expect Gomorrah season 2 and Black Mirror season 3 to be included in the TV segment of the annual all year media wrap up show. If not, you guys are wasting your time not watching the right programmes

  3. I can see a little Freddie or Bruno, but mostly I see straight-up Lando.

    My current 5:

    Wonder Woman
    Black Hammer
    Paper Girls
    Kill or Be Killed

  4. Great show. I wonder if you can give each other dumb powers

  5. I can’t believe how good The Flintstones is. Thanks for turning me on to it. Also picked up and enjoyed Avengers this week after this and the 1.1 issue got picks.

    My top 5 of the year:

    The Flintstones
    The Black Monday Murders
