For the first time ever, Alex and Andy are recording together, in the same room, facing each other! And how best to use this opportunity than for Alex to talk about his very favorite of all foods, burritos. He talks about his somewhat wistful, reverent relationship with the meal that essentially carried him through a cross-country solo road trip, Andy gives recs regarding fast food Mexican, and Alex gives you his personal recipe for the most delicious vegan burritos you’ve ever had. (Text at the bottom of these show notes)*
Hate: Toxic Comic Book Fandom
Andy, a lifelong comic book fan, rails and flails angrily at the very worst of comic book fans, namely white cis-dudes who complain on the internet about diversity. Alex, another hardcore comic book fan, joins him, and the two have a bonanza running down the history of creators and franchises telling diverse and politically-charged stories, and how every childish man-baby complaining about SJW’s ruining their culture don’t know what the hell they’re talking about. LHR at its very rant-iest.
Relationship: Tony Chu
One of you brilliant, gorgeous, immensely awesome audience-members writes in to ask about how to build an audience willing to pay money for their art. Alex and Andy discuss freelance services, working for free, being realistic, and maybe finally come to terms with just how hilariously unqualified they probably are to comment on the subject.
