Episode 120: Mildly Amusing


Our friend Jonathan Strickland from How Stuff Works and the Tech Stuff podcast stops by to talk about his awesome new web series Mildly Exciting Tales of Astonishment. It’s a fun series about superheroes going about their everyday life, doing things like trying to get hired at a daily newspaper or accidentally building their lair under a subway system or interviewing henchman. He’s Kickstarting its production and you can be part of it.

But that’s not all! We also talk about Doctor Who adding Mr. Weasley to the show, Minecraft, Borderlands 2, the Blackwater Kickstarter for a space mining real-time strategy game, and the problem with long-running shows. On October 11 Brian Richardson will be talking about Dragon*ConTV and social media at Digital Atlanta, and in February Jonathan is giving the keynote at the Pennsylvania Educational Technology Expo and Conference. Stephen doesn’t get to do any of that, so he went to an anime convention to talk about DCTV and make up an imaginary anime series.

Did we mention META? Go kickstart it!
