Alice Isn't Dead: 1: Omelet

As requested by one of our Patreon supporters, I finally started listening to the new jam from the Welcome to Nightvale crew. Our review will be out in August, so why don't you check it out too, and we'll compare notes later! Subscribe in iTunes here.

Fat Man on Batman: 134: BvS Dawn of Justice Ultimate Edition

Make mine Marvel. There, I said it. I LOVE the Marvel studios films, and admit to having been disappointed in Man of Steel. So much so that I stayed out of this one in the theatre altogether. On home video, finally got a chance to see the "Ultimate Edition" so now I can hear the Fatmen take it apart (or tell me why it's awesome). Subscribe in iTunes here.

Keepin' it 1600: 21: DNC Midweek Check-in With Jon Favreau and Dan Pfeiffer

So far, this is my favorite thing that's come out of The Ringer, Bill Simmons new podcast/blog empire. I enjoy the HBO show and it's a work in progress. This political podcast with two former Obama staffers is a great inside look for political junkies. This episode discusses the first day of the DNC. Subscribe in iTunes here.

WTF with Marc Maron Podcast: 726 - Chuck Klosterman

I love Marc, but don't listen to every episode. This one was a must. Chuck Klosterman is one of my favorite authors. This is a great conversation too. Subscribe in iTunes.

ReLaunch - 500 Relationship Success after Divorce - Joel Sharpton

Not only does the host of this show have a great name, he's a great guy to boot. I met Joel Boggess at this year's Podcast Movement in Chicago. He and I both spoke at PMx. Turns out, we have a lot in common. We also had a great chat for what turned out to be his 500th episode. Hear me talk about my remarriage and relaunch as an audiobook narrator.
