    May 3, 2021 3:00 pm Pizza! It's even worse than you described: Dick and Barbara are holding the pizza with 4 fingers on top, thumb on bottom. Like if you were holding a sword sideways in front of your face. That's gonna ruin your sleeve. Homelessness! At least since the 2008 housing crisis, there are plenty of clean homeless people. Journalism! Like him or not, Rich Johnston is a journalist. He has sources. Good rule of thumb is 'do they provide information that the companies don't want you to know.' He does that, or at least 'certain factions within the company don't want you to know'. Frankly he relies on official press releases less than most state department reporters.
    January 14, 2021 11:55 am Holy wow Josh you didn't so much give me a power as reveal my secret identity. In college I was very good at making it seem like I did the required reading.
    December 31, 2020 12:07 pm Didn’t watch because, as a toddler parent with no time,, I realized if I just asked for an extra 45 minutes I could finally watch an “epically long” movie by one of the 3 greatest living filmmakers. Been liking the Irishman more the more I thought about it, heard WW84 has the opposite effect. Without seeing it, just from the stills I’m with Ryan: with Max Lord’s hair, costume, make-up I thought “wow that is a really heavy-handed, super on-the-nose”. That hair is the iconographic equivalent of Gordon Gecko’s suspenders. Perusing reviews seems like the critical consensus is with Ryan
    December 31, 2020 11:44 am The mental health literature strongly suggests that moving forward is correlated with positive quality of life outcomes.
    July 14, 2020 12:36 pm Josh, it gets better as it goes on. Also, he took over the new 52 Earth-2 after James Robinson left and it was fantastic
    July 9, 2020 12:01 pm And I think the first DC trans character after the Endless desire
    July 9, 2020 9:39 am The Aeirie, the character you didn’t know from DCeased, was created by Tom Taylor for his current, awesome Suicide Squad run. I have never read SS (not the best acronym) before Taylor, didn’t care about any of the characters. In the first issue he made my heart break for a new character that I had know for maybe 10 panels, even less word balloons.
    April 30, 2020 10:41 am Now that I think about it, given that your disagreements often come across as funny riffs- pound for pound how much I laugh, I can straight up legit say that the two jamokes are one of my favorite comedy duos.
    April 29, 2020 3:51 pm Sorry Conor, regarding the left panel stacking email I don't really understand "trolling" either, right after I clicked send I thought "that probably wasn't a fair characterization." Maybe I figured it was a riff because it made me laugh. But you're absolutely right, I don't think there's anything in the universe that we've encountered that is more individual and unique as the brain and we all have our own grooves carved. So much so that the word "neurotypical" is starting to be replaced by "neuromajority", because there really is no such thing as typical with the brain.
    March 11, 2019 5:11 pm Great show! Josh, You’re a Dan Savage fan, right? Have you heard him or his callers discuss ‘vore’? If not it’s worth an urban dictionary check, it adds a really visceral (literally) layer to the vampire planet Vorr. And given Morrison’s areas of interest, occam’s razor says it was named on purpose.
