#347. Have RPGs Influenced Fantasy As Much As Tolkien?

April 12th, 2022

A lot is made -- rightly! -- about Tolkien's influence on the modern fantasy genre. But as today's guest argues, the influence of RPGs, and therefore video games, should not go underappreciated. Craig and Drew (from the Inking Out Loud podcast) have a conversation with A.P. Canavan, known on YouTube as A Critical Dragon.

April 5th, 2022

Craig, Ryan, and Todd welcome Vilja Johnson back to the show to discuss The Batman. Does the new Robert Pattinson-driven film succeed?

Plus, a short discussion about whether we've reached the apex of comic book movies as the most popular of popular entertainment and are seeing a long-term decline, or if we're simply in a cyclical lull.
