11/22/2017
More
I'm a huge fan of the YouTube channel, NerdSync Productions. For years, Scott Niswander has put out quality videos exploring fascinating topics ranging from history, science, philosophy, culture, and art. The best part though is that he makes some of these complex ideas a little more accessible and easy to understand by using heroes and villains from the world of comic books. And I love me some comic books... If you're not familiar with NerdSync, check out the video above (hidden behind...

GGP #24 - Chris Provost Interview

8/28/2017
More
With Salt Lake Comic Con coming up September 21-23, we thought it would be fun to mix things up a bit and sit down with someone that isn't Dan Farr to talk about the event and what takes place behind the scenes. (Not that we don't like to talk with Dan, because we do, but we thought that a change would be good.) So instead of Dan, we were joined by Salt Lake Comic Con emcee, and awesome joke teller, Chris Provost. Come listen as Chris tells us some of his favorite experiences from previous...

We may be a few weeks late, but we have finally took the time to share our thoughts on Suicide Squad. I won't spoil it, but if you've listened to any of the recent Stolendroids Podcasts, then you already know my feelings. But what does Collin think? I guess that you'll have to listen to find out!
