From 2007-2014, the AudioShocker Podcast Network delivered weekly uncensored pop culture criticism and comics creation conversation.

Here’s how it all started . . .
It seemed like a kickass idea except… who’d want to download an mp3 of two guys talking? And the file size would be HUGE!! Despite their doubts, they brainstormed a bunch of topics and even recorded a demo track.
And then? As it is with many of the world’s greatest ideas, nothing happened. That’s why it’s called a podcast and not a nealnickcast.
But that was just the beginning . . .
In September 2007, the guys resurrected their idea for an audio magazine and teamed up with Justique to launch AudioShocker.com.
Over time, AudioShocker grew from a single weekly podcast into a full-fledged podcast network with tons of regular contributors and a wide range of content focused on cult films, comic books, graphic novels, webcomics, animation, weird TV shows, fighting games, and more.
We even evolved our own style of production that we called podcast vérité. At the core, we strove to give you the raw conversation as it was recorded, with minimal editing. Sometimes it meant that we pulled back the curtain and let you hear us arguing about background noise. Other times, it meant that we left in controversial statements that challenged the views of both hosts and listeners.
And then the time came to retire . . .
After 788 episodes, we rode off into the sunset in April 2014. We wrapped up all of our ongoing series and said farewell to our incredible listeners, who made podcasting an invaluable experience. Thanks for a great six and a half years of fun!
Technically speaking, we’re hosted by DreamHost. We run WordPress (natch) and we use the K2 theme. Our podcast feed is courtesy the PodPress plugin. We recorded our conversations with Skype and CallGraph, and then we edited them with Audacity.
