This idealy was supposed to come out before Christmas, then on Christmas Day maybe, but none of that happened. Dustin Christmas weekend was a s***show day to say the least. Our real Christmas special will come out on the next episode, which in turn is really our 10 YEAR ANNIVERSARY of doing this. 10 years of failed promises, broken dreams, lowered expectations, and somewhere in the middle of that is a review of Japanese cartoons somewhat. This time its a con report from the end of October at Atlanta, so enjoy that!

(3:42:22 – 5:47:42) FINAL ACT – A somewhat review of Wonder Woman 84 with a platter of a bunch of nerd ramblings – Dustin, Jonn and Daft come on the mic to give their thoughts on the latest Wonder Woman film, but in reality like 30 or so minutes was spent talking about that movie while they would rather talk about anything and everything else that sidetracked the conversation. Included in this dish is sports talk, live action shows we were watching, Jonn and Daft trash on Looney Tunes Rabbit Run, how the 80’s have warn out its welcome in media, 90’s nostalgia, cartoon remake talks, comics, how it is watching Marvel films with your parents, the Christmas gifts we got this year, Daft explains Section 230 to Dustin, and much more!
