• August 23rd, 2016

The Rantcor Pit is back and after a rousing episode of the live show on Sunday, August 21, 2016, there was still so much to tell about Infinicon 2016 and especially the Star Wars guests that the conversation continues here.

Cole Houston and Eddie Medina share their experiences with actor Gerald Home (Tessek or "Squid-Head" of Jabba's Palace and a Mon Calamari Officer)) and stunt man Dickey Beer (Barada, Boba Fett, Stormtrooper, Weequay, etc.) at Infinicon, Texas' newest pop culture convention.  From behind the scenes tales of Return of the Jedi to other fascinating stories of film and television in the US and abroad, there was so much to share even this episode does not cover it all!

Hey Kids, Comics! #192 - Rogue-ish I’s: Coin Toss

Hey Kids, Comics! #191 - Rogue-ish I’s: Silly Bird

• August 12th, 2016

With a resonant quack and a trademark waddle, the Penguin became an iconic Batman villain, if a rather comical, satirical one at that.  Yet over the many decades of this feathered felon's career, Oswald Cobblepot has become one of the most important members of Batman's rogue's gallery.

Andrew Farmer and Cole Houston continue their exploration of Batman's core adversaries and how they reflect aspects of his own personality and alter-ego.  This week they are joined by Penguin fan and co-host of The Rantcor Pit and The Rantcor Pit Live, Eddie Medina.

Wine is consumed, a villain's motivations and history are explored, and the show goes off the rails often enough to punctuate the odd tale of an odd old bird of Gotham City.

• August 9th, 2016

As the champion of Gotham City, Batman faces a bewildering rogue's gallery of adversaries.  Some present physical challenges, others philosophical, and still others intellectual.  "Rouge-ish I's" seeks to explore these challenges as represented by the villains taken on by the Dark Knight Detective.

While often one of the more underrated and ignored villains, the Riddler has proven in recent years to occupy a vital niche in the Batman mythos.  Hosts Andrew Farmer and Cole Houston discuss and examine Batman's most enigmatic of foes along with Riddler aficionado, Josh Watson.
