BS with SB Volume 2: 14 F’n Months Later!

• January 29th, 2015

Welcome to a long overdue second episode of BS wtih SB!

Fourteen months after the first show, Cole Houston and Stuart Baulk (of Midnight Movie Cowboys) are back at it with a pretty casual, if rather adult language filled, conversation.  
From Australia Day 2015 to how damned many podcasts JediCole is on these days, the whole discussion just moves here and there as two friends a world apart reunite with live mics and nothing much held back during taping or cut out of the final show.
Language Warning:  Fairly free use of "not for the kids" language can be found on this show.

• January 18th, 2015

The Rantcor Pit is back! 

Your hosts Cole Houston and Eddie Medina take to the spaceways in a special episode all about the spacecraft of Star Wars!  One of the most iconic elements of the Saga is the various vehicles large and small that conveyed the heroes, villains, armies, and everyday denizens from planet to planet.  From the fighter craft and capital warships to the Millennium Falcon and Count Dooku's odd little solar sailer, there was not shortage of subject matter this outing.

Hey Kids, Comics! #119 - Take This Cape and Shove It!

• January 9th, 2015

It's time for another great issue of Hey Kids, Comics! and it's time to quit!

Well, not really quit from the standpoint of the show but more the topic.  Your hosts Andrew Farmer and Cole Houston tackle the all-too-common phenomenon of super-quitting.  That is to say super-heroes quitting a team, quitting an identity, or just quitting the business outright.
Nearly every major super-hero has jumped on this bandwagon at some point or another.  Their reasons are as varied as the characters themselves.  And the top heroes even reserve the right, it seems, to quit multiple times for every reason in the catalog!  What is the dynamic of such departures.  Why do they never seem to last?  
Well quit speculating and start listening!

Hey Kids, Comics! #117 - The End of the World

• December 19th, 2014

But thankfully not the end of Hey Kids, Comics!

After a week off Andrew Farmer and Cole Houston are back at it with a lively exploration of another facet of comics.  In this case it is that old chestnut, the end of everything! 
How often has Armageddon loomed large, has Ragnarok come a callin', has oblivion been the order of the day?  Fairly often in the 100 plus years that comics have been a part of the literary scene.  Far too often, really.  But that is the sort of thing that makes ideal grist for the mill that is this show and the discussions of two fans who can't get enough of analyzing comics!  
Enjoy this word-destroying episode today, while there's still a today to enjoy it during!

Hey Kids, Comics #116 - She Who Purrs At Midnight

• December 5th, 2014

Meow!  Hey Kids, Comics! has gone to the cats!


Yes, they know it is "gone to the dogs", but in this case it is all about the cats!  From feline femme fatales to the most catlike characters in comics, there is something about cats that makes them a popular theme for hero and villain alike.

While both male and female characters have taken on the feline persona, it is most commonly associated with women.  Andrew Farmer and Cole Houston explore this and many other aspects of the cat as the template for super heroes and villains on the latest episode.
