Comicpalooza 2018 Wrap-Up

Episode 101 – Comicpalooza 2018 Wrap Up

In this episode, we briefly try to do our Comicpalooza 2018 Wrap Up, and fail miserably at the “brief” part! There was SO much going on, and we just couldn’t help ourselves!! So listen to us gush about the amazing time we had, all of our awesome panels, our friends, and did we mention the celebrities??

Comicpalooza 2018 Wrap Up

We not-so-briefly go through each day of the convention and talk about the awesome panels we attended, the panels we hosted, and how much fun it was to finally see each other again since Heather moved away!

There are probably some really long tangents about Harry Potter meet-ups and other things, but the conversation was fun, so we left them in.

Quick Review

  • Thursday – Badge pick up, reuniting with our friends, and grabbing lunch
  • Friday – Matinee Hereos panel, Peter Mayhew (moderated by Brandon from Cult 45), Liz gushing about TALKING to Peter Mayhew, and a lot on our trivia show down game show with Cult 45 podcast. The live stream for that show is available here.

After recording with Shasie, Heather made it to the Cult 45 Podcast live show. Liz was late and missed it since the room was PACKED! As a small consolation, she did get to say hello to (and get a wave and hello in return from) Tom Holland. After that, we had our LIVE show, which you can find here: http://www.nerdybitches.com/episode-100-live-from-comicpalooza-with-cards-against-humanity/http://www.nerdybitches.com/episode-100-live-from-comicpalooza-with-cards-against-humanity/

  • Sunday: We had our Women in Podcasting panel, which we hosted. The panel included Mandy from CasterQuest, Miss Jenny Kelley, and Thirsty from Raging Nerds. It was a great panel, and we are looking forward to seeing the video captured by Seale when it is available!

Now, we are exhausted! Heather is going out on assignment for a few weeks to a couple of other conventions. In the meantime, Liz will be joined by guest host Mandy until Heather is back! Look for those episodes coming soon!

 

Thanks again to the team at Comicpalooza for our third time as part of their official podcasting program. We have a great time every year, and this is definitely our favorite convention! We are already looking forward to next year!

100th Episode Live at Comicpalooza with Cards Against Humanity

Episode 100 – LIVE from Comicpalooza with Cards Against Humanity

It’s finally here!! In this episode, we are celebrating our 100th episode LIVE from Comicpalooza with Cards Against Humanity!! We also had some very special guests and listeners leave some awesome messages, and you will hear those throughout the live game play. Heather and Liz were back in the same state again, so it only made sense to make this milestone episode something special!

Winner with runners-up

LIVE from Comicpalooza with Cards Against Humanity!

We may have stretched time a little to make this milestone happen when and how it did, but it was totally worth it! Our podcasting room was packed with people sitting along the walls just to watch. A big chunk of the audience played the game WITH us in a tournament-style show down to get to a single winner of our amazing Nerdy Bitches trophy (which is a female body building trophy, in actuality, but the caption on the trophy says it all!). And believe me, they WANTED this trophy. Our reigning champion from 2017 was there to defend his title, even though we told him we wouldn’t take away his trophy.

Who WOULDN’T want this little gem in their trophy case??

The game play was amazing, loud, and a great deal of fun, and we really hope you enjoy. Note: It has been edited to cut out the boring parts while we overexplain the modified rules, people are shuffling cards, and lining up. You are getting the solid action!

Shout Outs!

We put out an invitation via social media for anyone who wanted to send in a congratulations message, and we have included those soundbites and voicemail messages throughout the show. We love these folks and really appreciate them taking the time to send in a message! If they have a podcast, we are linking it below.

We want to extend a HUGE Thank You to everyone who has participated in making this 100th episode amazing!! Thank you to:

  • Producer Craig, for always making us sound like we know what we are doing!
  • OperaMan, for always being a supportive listener and one who provides us with great feedback.
  • Cult45 Podcast for being awesome brothers-in-arms to our show and to Brandon for acting as bouncer during the show when some idiots got a little rowdy!

And a GIGANTIC thank you to Seale Adams for coming all the way in just to film our little dog and pony show!! We cannot wait to share his videographic genius with all of you via our YouTube Channel when it is completed!

R to L: Heather, Seale, Liz  – Live from Comicpalooza with Cards Against Humanity

 

Thank you to all of our listeners for allowing us to hit this milestone in our podcasting careers. We are looking forward to many more and have some awesome things in the works, so stick around!!

Rate and Review

We are so grateful for anyone who leave a 5-star rating and review in Apple Podcasts. A word of warning – Apple does not allow “offensive language” in their reviews, so if you mention the name of the show, or bitches or whatever, it will eat the review and we will never know your lovely thoughts. I have found that just typing b*tches is more than sufficient to make it past the censors. We would love to hear from you!

xo,

Liz and Heather

Black Panther

Episode 99 – Black Panther

In this episode, Liz and Heather took a break from Comicpalooza to sit down with blogger and lifestyle guru, Shasie (Shasie’s World) to talk ALL about Black Panther! We will be focusing on the character of Black Panther, not just the stand-alone movie, so we will be discussing Captain America Civil War, Black Panther, and Avengers: Infinity War with SPOILERS all over the place. Also, please excuse the audio. When recording quickly on-the-go, we had a few slip-ups!

Black Panther

Again, SPOILERS! We sat down with Shasie at Comicpalooza to talk all about the character, Black Panther, and will crossover into the different movies he has been in. We jump right on in and talk about all of the crazy things that happen in all of the movies and what is going to happen during the next group of movies that we know are coming.

We love Black Panther. Period. When he pops up in Civil War in the chase of Winter Soldier, we were surprised and excited. We talk about villians, and how well Marvel is doing at bringing in villians who you can somewhat relate to and can feel (especially Killmonger).

We do jump around to talk about some of the rest of the MCU and had a great time.
