    My LCS will occasionally have a discount question off your price, which I think is a little cute, and has never been unreasonable in difficulty. “What paper does Peter Parker/Clark Kent work for?” That kind of thing. So for a comic shop, I think it’s a nice touch.

    When my favorite podcasters of all time started talking about my favorite TV show of all time, I totally marked out!

    You probably already remember this, but I just wanted to point out that Garret Dilahunt not only played Jack McCall, the dirtbag that shot Wild Bill Hickock, but he also came back in Season to to play a completely different character, Francis Wolcott, who was an even nastier villain. To play two different characters in the same show and not disrupt things, was quite an achievement in my opinion.

    I get excited to see actors and actresses show up in other shows. The most recent is Kim Dickens, who played Joannie Stubbs in Deadwood, is one of the leads on Fear the Walking Dead.

    Thanks for the podcast!
