Words With Nerds: Is Batman Judas?

A wink and a thumbs up means a great show! We cover a lot of ground in this one, including:
  • A birthday present from the man who gave John myrrh
  • Are special offers from comic books responsible for Craig's hearing loss?
  • Living in fear of Bobcat Goldthwait
  • Date Night: Guardians of the Gluttony
  • Our 15-second spoiler-free reviews of Guardians of the Galaxy
  • Who will Kevin Smith blame in the "Death of Superman Lives" documentary?
  • The back story of how John was a chain smoker
  • Is Gotham heading for the one-and-done season?
And for the record, despite the great feelings at the end of the show...Shawn's still fired (for now).

More entertaining than Seth McFarlane, so maybe we can get millions of dollars for doing this!
