"Far out in the uncharted backwaters of the unfashionable end of the southern hemisphere lies a small unregarded podcast. Presenting this podcast for a period of roughly two years are a group of ape-descended life forms who - with the exception of Chani - are so amazingly primitive that they still think digital watches are a pretty neat idea..."*

Today we release Episode 42, and there was really only one thing we could talk about. So we present to you our take on the works of that most glorious, frustrating, hoopiest of froods, Douglas Adams.

Plus Cav gets Manic, Chani starts Following, and Mike is Alluding to another podcast altogether...

There are certain dates every year that the Geek Calendar can be set by; your local big convention, the first of the big tentpole blockbusters, San Diego ComiCon, and so on. Free Comic Book Day has firmly established itself as one of these the world over, so on May 5th, we popped down to All Star Comics here in glamourous Melbourne to see what delights awaited us. We then hotfooted it back to TWBG Towers to read, digest, and then record this episode based on what we found. There were secret agents, robot dogs, preludes to war, and utter batshit insanity. And that's just the comics.

 

Plus in our Thimble of Win, Chani gets lost in the Ink Machine, and Mike and Cav get some serious Avenging in (so, potential spoilers).

This week, we debate all things Vampire - where do they come from, what is it that appeals about them, which are the best examples of the genre and so on. We pick out our favorite bloodsuckers, and those we'd rather stake out on a tropical island at noon. And there's bonus Nicholas Cage.

 

Plus Chani wants the kids to get off her lawn, Cav gets all piratey, and Mike is up to something fishy...

 

Beaver PiƱata!
