Extra Sequential Podcast Trailer

Seeing as we’re approaching our one year anniversary, Mladen and I thought we’d do something a little special, so here we have a trailer for our weekly Extra Sequential podcast. As always for the show, the groovy music is by Mladen. It was pretty fun to make this, as I haven’t done any editing in years.

So, now you know what we look like. Some may say we have faces for radio, but I disagree.

Extra Sequential Podcast Episode Seventeen

Because WE demanded it! Two podcast episodes in one week! Actually, we’re just changing the day on which we record our show, so we can have more time to properly digest new comics.

49 mins. After our sweet sixteenth episode, comes our sour seventeenth episode. It’s not that sour really, but we do run the gamut of topics as usual. Apart from comics, films and manga news and reviews, we also discuss Mladen’s dodgy pronunciation of “news,” the Back to the Future game and unfunny Ricky Gervais films.
