Well, this is more like a post-SDCC podcast! Jimmy was in Los Angeles after Comic Con and managed to get a couple of interviews. Since he was staying w/ Milana Vayntrub, he figured he could get her to agree and she did! Literally on his way to the airport, Jimmy and Milana chatted over a quick dinner. They talked about her role as Squirrel Girl in the upcoming Marvel Rising animated series, her charity Can’t Do Nothing, directing, comedy and how she loves to sing and dance while driving Jimmy around! Jimmy sat with Sandeep Parikh earlier in the week to talk about his recent interactive web series comedy That Moment When… that starred his old roommate/best pal Milana Vayntrub! See how this all ties together, kids? Jimmy and Sandeep also talked about his other work in The Guild, The Legend of Neil and his comedy channel Effin Funny. No regular format show over the next few weeks. Just the awesome and massive SDCC coverage!! Leave your iTunes comments! 5 stars and nothing but love! Also, get a hold of us!

Okay boys and Girls, in this enlightening episode you learn in no uncertain terms that the F BombCast is not a democracy, nor is it a socialist utopia, It is a strict dictatorship where TJ calls the shots and the one with the Money is the one that makes the decisions. Because there is more in these boys lives then just the being just a comic geek, we hear about some Music TJ has been listenig to, We learn about that awesomeness that is the Guild and The A Team, Fringe, and Toy Story 3. Mike has an awesome Father’s Day, While TJ’s is Pissy. Now here is where all you geeks should perk up: AT THE 41 MINUTE MARK WE START TALKING COMICS. Avengers Academy is re discussed. DC Legacies and The new Levits Legion of Superheroes are both mentioned. Shadow Hawk #1 as well as Steve Niles Mystery Society has us break out of the Big Two. and we come back around with TJ Blowing John Constantine and Hellblazer. And to End it all We learn that Luke Cage is a Felon (Surprise surprise) that heads the thunderbolts.
