Episode 5 - Papa Don't Preach, I'm In Trouble Deep

No Reviews, Just Analysis.

In a disgusting display of everything that is wrong with society today, Andrea is still on vacation. Why should you care, other than to be all Judgey McJudgerson about it? Well, it means Aaron has to edit the show this week. We apologize in advance.

Thanks for listening (especially in light of the above). If you have feedback or accolades, drop us a line in the comments, on Twitter or via email. Hell, you can even find us on Facebook or Tumblr or Google+ if you want. We're equal opportunity social butterflies.

Show Notes:
Theme of the show is legacy: escaping the past sins of our fathers (and ourselves) or being doomed to repeat them. How do you break the cycle?

This week's intro music is This Good Robot's new song "Super Spy" based on the Matt Kindt book. It's amazing. Listen to the whole thing here.

Intro 0:00 to 1:06

[1st confession]

More intro 1:40 to 2:47

[2nd confession]

Banter - 3:01 to 11:00

Dream Thief #4 11:24 to 23:15
This book could have been called I Wake Up With Dead People. (Proving once again why we talk about comics, we don't make them.) Either way, awkward city to inherit this particular "power" from your dad, eh?

[SPX Announcement]

Nova #7
A new Marvel superhero who happens to be fourteen years old? Yet the book isn't appropriate for all-ages? Yeah, this isn't going to devolve into a conversation about state of the industry or anything at all.

[4th confession]

Numbercruncher #2 38:38 to 49:20
Maybe all this wishy washy destiny stuff is a load of crap. It's just numbers, so if you can master the maths you can master your life. Or, why paying attention in algebra is the key to unlocking the secrets of the universe. Now with 100% more cockney.

[5th confession]

Grief Counseling - The Walking Dead Vol. 2, #7-12 49:45 to End
Each week, Andrea is going to face her fears by reading a volume of The Walking Dead. This can only end poorly.

Yup, she still hates it. But for increasingly complex reasons.

Thanks again, kids. Leave us a message with your #nerdconfessions and let us know what you think about the show. Until next week...
