Listen to Nick on the YIBR Team-Up #6 podcast!

I was honored to be a guest on this week's Yamagato Industries Business Report Team-Up #6 (long title!) podcast:

In case you don't already know, YIBR is the comics and anime podcast of TheGameHeroes.com. Hosted by Link, Mongo, and Beeslo, it's a weekly mix of current nerd news and opinions. You can connect with YIBR on their forums or on their Facebook page.

In this episode, we talk about Desperate Justice, ALF, Totall Recall #1, and tons more. If you'd rather listen to an audio-only version of the episode (with a few more awkward moments and a different opening), here ya go:

I gotta give a shout out to Colonel Panic, the artist of YIBR's title cards (kickass drawings that rep reach episode of the show). Here's the fantastic title card he did for Team-Up #6:

Thx, Panic. YOU DA MAN!!! (Panic is also the artist of the Yamagato webcomic, written by the hosts and listeners of YIBR. It's a fantastic webcomic, so check it out!)

BUT WAIT! There's more! This blog post is the perfect time to announce a special continuation of the glorious AudioShocker/YIBR crossover... June will officially be "A Month of Yamagato" on the AudioShocker Podcast!!! One-by-one, the hosts of YIBR will appear on Tuesday's podcast alongside Neal and myself. On the fourth and final Tuesday of the month, we'll wrap things up by featuring a special two-part superhero movie throwdown.

So thx again to the YIBR crew, and prepare yourself for a serious Yamagato overdose next month!

Check the new webcomic by our friends at YIBR!!!

Our fellow podcasting compatriots -- Yamagato Industries Business Report -- have a brand-spanking-new YIBR webcomic chock full of comic book and video game jokes.

Scrippted by Beeslo (the bizarro me) and arted by Colonel "this isn't my real name" Panic, it even sports a kickass AudioShocker reference in a recent strip:

OH YEAH! Not only is that kid's shirt sweet, but his friend is 100% correct!!! (BTW, how did that small child get an AudioShocker shirt and why is he listening to our 18+ podcasts... HMMM???)

Anyway, I'm fully in support of podcasters who make webcomics and comics peeps who make podcasts (*ahem* and *ahem*), so I'm happy to see more joining the ranks! NOW GO READ THE DAMN COMICS ALREADY.

A Bigger & Badder Pittsburgh Podcast Crossover?

Pittsburgh Podcast Crossover flyerNot to be outdone by ourselves, the AudioShocker has organized a massive Pittsburgh Podcast Crossover. We're joining forces with the fantastic Comic Book Pitt and the stupendous Yamagato podcasts, and we're going to be recording this historic event LIVE at Phantom of the Attic (PotA) Comics in Pittsburgh, PA!!!

This 2009 Eisner-nominated comic book shop will house the world's biggest and baddest comic book podcast crossover ever at 12PM on Sunday, June 14, 2009. Headquartered at 411 S Craig St in the Oakland neighborhood of Pittsburgh, this is going to be a mega podcast event featuring the recording of AudioShocker Podcast #84 as well as your chance to win FREE AudioShocker t-shirts!

Here's a schedule of our upcoming podcast awesomeness:

  • Tuesday, June 9, 2009 - AudioShocker Podcast #82*
  • Wednesday, June 10, 2009 - A Podcast with Ross and Nick #1
  • Sunday, June 14, 2009 - Pittsburgh Podcast Crossover @ PotA
  • Tuesday, June 16, 2009 - AudioShocker Podcast #84*
  • Wednesday, June 17, 2009 - A Podcast with Ross and Nick #2

* Confused? See, AudioShocker Podcast #83 ran this past Tuesday. Why? Because we decided to skip #82 in honor of our fallen episode (and just in case the lost audio ever found its way to my Google Voice inbox, which it did). That's why the Pittsburgh Podcast Crossover will air in AudioShocker Podcast #84 and not #83.
