Believe it or not, I didn’t listen to any podcasts between February 2015 and February 2017. Over my two-year hiatus, my TNU sidekick Laneit kept telling me listen this podcast, or listen that one. Some podcasts sounded interesting, but the dude listens to so many podcasts, I just stopped paying attention.
But after the Super Bowl this past February, I decided to return to the land of ye olde podcasts. One of my first stops was one of Laneit’s comic book suggestions: Worst Collection Ever, hosted by Shawn Marek and Jen Stansfield.
Every week Jen and Shawn discuss one or two comics from their own collection. Typically they talk about a Marvel and/or a DC book, but they also bring up other publishers like their recent Night Man episode. In each episode, they will cover the plot of the issue, the characters, and what they liked or didn’t like about it.
This usually leads Shawn and Jen to some amazingly funny moments in every episode, including some that have nothing to do with the comics they’re discussing. Don’t even get me started on Downtown Dracula.
One of the other things I like about Jen and Shawn, is that they love dollar bin bins just like I do. They’re not afraid to try random books like NFL Superpro, Thunderstrike, and Extreme Justice as long as they’re cheap. Now that’s my kinda people!
There are currently over 100 episodes available for download, and I’m slowly making my way through them. If you like comics and you like podcasts, then Laneit and I, highly recommend listening to Worst Collection Ever. And listen for an occasional cameo from their cat in a few episodes.
