PODCAST:

S3E3B – Watchmen (book)*

SHOW NOTES:

One of the best shows we have recorded in my humble opinion so don’t miss this one and tell your friends and family to check it out—especially if they are not really into comic books. This time we were compelled to go longer than our usual time allotted for our new format, but it seemed necessary given the epic we covered. There was a lot to cover in this hour and we got big contributions from my old friend, Quinn Bayola. Quinn earned the respected rank of captain of the famous (and fearless) Bravo Company at Culver Military Academy when him and I were seniors there and currently has his own show called “The ThisQ Podcast.” Check it out on iTunes, Spreaker or other podcast venues. His podcast has a chill vibe and provides unique perspective on pop culture and… professional wrestling, no kidding.
