Geekritique Makes His Podcast Debut on The 52 NOW! Podcast


I had the honor and privelege this past week to share my voice on The 52 NOW! podcast. Over the past couple months the guys over at the Zowie Kerpowey site have reached out to me, and have asked me to not only give them an interview, but to also appear on their show! As this is the first time I’ve been asked to make a guest appearance on a podcast, especially a podcast I happen to enjoy quite a bit, I just couldn’t say no.

The 52 NOW! is primarily a comic book discussion show, but they go in depth into many of the issues and highlights that both plague and give life to the culture. If you’re an avid comic reader, someone who enjoys geek culture in all its many facets, or someone who just wants to stay abreast with all that’s going on in the geek community, this podcast is a real treat.

Dave and Andrew allowed me the awesome opportunity to discuss all that is happening within the Marvel Cinematic Universe, particularly highlighting what we thought about Marvel’s latest outing – Avengers: Age of Ultron. So do note, there will be plenty of spoilers throughout the discussion. Be sure to watch that before listening.

  1. My initial reaction to this was “so that’s what he sounds like”. It’s nice to have a voice behind the words, because it’s makes them less like the be-all-and-end-all and more of the subjective thoughts they are. Sometimes I become paranoid that people online don’t actually exist.

    But I agree with your points. Instant reactions based on little information is becoming a really big problem. And I can say that, because I used to be like that. The review I wrote of Kill the Moon was basically the word “fuck” a hundred times, so having been “that guy” really gives me a perspective on how fandoms can react to stuff. But then the biggest reason I blog is for the interactivity. It’s important for us to have an understanding of reality, because otherwise we become assholes. So as we continue blogging, we become more precise with how we express ourselves. There’s so much hate on the Internet that any legitimate criticism or dislike becomes condemned as being it, whereas it’s less about the opinion and more about the expression. Half the bloggers I follow I don’t always agree with, but that doesn’t matter because they’re good at explaining what they think.
    And the other stuff was really insightful, too. Especially about your origins as a blogger because of Doctor Who, as that’s how I started before expanding into other things. Like Doctor Who Rewind, a project I really hope you do more.

    Plus, hearing you talk about Tales From Atelinor reminded me that they actually exist. I always meant to start reading them but never did, and as someone developing my own sci-fi/fantasy series right now, it was a real motivation that blogging’s a good way of distributing it. In fact, you generally expressed what I think of lot of bloggers can feel; that we’re only doing it as a means to an end. There’s so much we want to talk about, but there’s the constant worry of spamming our followers with too much (unless that’s just me), while also seeing lots of great stuff to tell them about. But then we take reassurance in what we say being less important than who we come across as being when we say it. I dunno, maybe.

      I really want to take the time to thank you for listening to ramble on, as well as for the comment. Interactivity, as you say, makes this blog what it is, and I’m so glad I’m not the only blogger who feels that way. I shall be continuing with the Doctor Who Rewind, so don’t you worry. Next up is The Brain of Morbius.

      • Yes, very much so. I’m working through a chapter a day, so I’ll be a caught-up soon. The structure’s really cool, as well, they’re like anthologies with an overarching story. Hopefully I’ll start a similarly-themed blog at some point in the foreseeable future.
