Two Nerds and a Podcast


  • Bullet Points

    Bullet Points


    “Let’s read Bullet Points!” he said. “JMS is awesome!” he said. “I’ve heard it’s a really awesome twist on the Marvel Universe!” he said. The boys take a look at Bullet Points, the Marvel miniseries with the slightly-more-complicated-than-it-should-be high concept of: “What would happen if Captain America never existed and for some reason Ben Parker […]

  • Serenity: Leaves on the Wind

    Serenity: Leaves on the Wind


    The Thwipping Boys have never made a secret of their love for the works of Joss Whedon and Firefly in particular holds a very special place in their hearts. So the first canon post-Serenity story, written by *cough* Whedon no less, should be a thing of beauty, right? Right? BWAH!         PS. Before […]

  • Avengers Forever Part 1

    Avengers Forever Part 1


    Podcast: Avengers Forever Part 1 – Issues 1-6 Before we undertook this in-depth look at Busiek and Pacheco’s Avengers Forever we were bright-eyed young podcasters, optimistic about a future filled with awesome stories like this one, which we’d been led to believe was one of the great standalone Marvel tales. By the end of this podcast […]

  • The Lady and The Hound

    The Lady and The Hound


    Podcast – Game of Thrones Season 4 Episode 10: The Children An in-depth discussion on the Season 4 finale, with a few rambling discussions and out-there theories about ASoIaF in general thrown in for good measure. Loads to talk about this week so probably best just to let you get on with it!       […]

  • Death of the Family

    Death of the Family


    Podcast: Batman #13 – 17 by Scott Snyder, Greg Capullo and a whole bunch of other fine folk. Because we only cover the most recent events in comics, we decided to return to the New 52 and take a look at Death of the Family. What we have here is a fine example of how […]

  • A Song of Arse on Fire

    A Song of Arse on Fire


    Podcast – Game of Thrones Season 4 Episode 9: The Watchers on the Wall. We were led to believe this week’s battle would pitch a Wildling army of 100,000 against our tiny band of 102 plucky crows…and that’s not really what we got. However what we did get was another awesome hour-long battle set-piece to […]

  • Fingers in Everyone

    Fingers in Everyone


    Podcast: Avengers Forever and 24:Live Another Day Jon and Simon return to the world of comics with a preview of their in-depth look at Busiek and Pacheco’s Avengers Forever! Plus at the halfway point of 24: Live Another Day, the boys wonder if Jack Bauer still has a valid place in today’s post-Homeland world, as well […]

  • A little bit Junkion

    A little bit Junkion


    Podcast: Television Reviews – People Just Do Nothing and Game of Thrones Season 4 Episode 8: The Mountain and the Viper Way back in October 2011 for Episode 6 – Disco Badger, back when we were mere podcasting babes, we covered a series of internet videos called People Just Do Nothing, following the ups and downs […]

  • The Irish Whipping Boys – NXT Takeover Thoughts and Feels

    The Irish Whipping Boys – NXT Takeover Thoughts and Feels


    Evenin’ all. When Jon and I decided to bring the podcast back we wanted to do things just a little bit different. We decided not to be so strict in what we talk about, how long we talk and when we talk about it. We want to cover things we’re passionate about and we’re pretty happy […]

  • WOW. Quicksilver looks like a c*nt…

    WOW. Quicksilver looks like a c*nt…


    Film Review: Amazing Spider-Man 2 and X-Men: Days of Future Past Heeeeeey! So, we’re back. Kind of. After bursting onto the scene with nine months of podcasting GENIUS back in 2011/12, we had to jack it in to deal with myriad issues – addiction, anger, alcoholism, you name it. But we fought our way out […]

  • Ep. 35 – Bubastiality

    Ep. 35 – Bubastiality


    Warning! We start off this week by discussing the sixth episode of Game of Thrones Season 2, “The Old Gods and The New”! This week’s comic books discussion covers topics as diverse as the origin of King Arthur and whether Adrian Veidt is f*cking that weird cat thing of his. We also have some fun with Rob […]

  • Ep. 34 – Too Few Drugs

    Ep. 34 – Too Few Drugs


    This week we kick off with a rant about the Machiavellian, headline-grabbing antics of Mark Millar, a man whose lack of shame seems to know no bounds. Did you know he WROTE THE PLOT for the Avengers movie? Us neither. Then after catching up with the Game of Thrones chat it’s onto the week’s comic […]

  • Ep. 33 – 45 mph

    Ep. 33 – 45 mph


    Sorry for the delay in getting last week’s show up. Truth is, we got together to record a few videos, the first of which – an awesome Avengers Review VideoCast with MASSIVE, IMMEDIATE SPOILERS – is already available. The DC comics disappointed somewhat this week and we’re still not loving anything AvX related, so thank […]

  • Ep. 32 – Batman and Rubbin

    Ep. 32 – Batman and Rubbin


    After the shambles that was last week’s listless show we find our mojo again (and some crack!) and compare and contrast the beginnings of the Avengers Vs. X-Men and Night of the Owls events with AvX #2, Batman #8 and in a surprise reappearance, Nightwing #8. In doing so we hit upon exactly what Marvel […]

  • Ep. 31 – Compensation

    Ep. 31 – Compensation


    This week something happened in Demon Knights which we predicted way back in September after reading #1! We also take a look at two new creator-owned books in the form of Jonathan Hickman’s Secret and America’s Got Powers by Jonathan Ross and Bryan Hitch. We continue to enjoy Watchmen and JLA, say good-bye to Kyle […]

  • Ep. 30 – Thwipping Boys Vs. Action Comics!

    Ep. 30 – Thwipping Boys Vs. Action Comics!


    This week we randomly decided to take a look at something that wasn’t in the plan. As well as checking out Avengers Vs. X-Men #1, we saw that Mark Waid and Stuart Immonen promised that something called Avengers Vs. X-Men: Infinite was the future of digital comics. As digital devotees, well we had to check […]

  • Ep. 29 – The Order of Dumbass

    Special Edition – Marvels and Ruins


    Welcome to a new Special Edition of the Thwipping Boys podcast as we continue our tradition of delving into a classic of the comics form by reading Marvels by Alex Ross and Kurt Busiek. Originally featured in Episodes 10 to 13 of our show, we now present the review as one single piece. But that […]

  • Ep.28 – Letting Go

    Ep.28 – Letting Go


    This week we cover Wonder Woman’s Invisible Jet, Doktor Mandrake, Fishing Spider-Man AND The Adventures of Big Face. What more could you want? Batman #7 shows that Greg Capullo and Scott Snyder are just taking the piss now. Plus, there’s droppage this week. It’s positively droppy, in fact.         Show Notes for […]
