It’s the epic 900th episode live recording! And strap in, kids. It’s a LENGTHY ONE at almost 2 hours! We were having so much fun chatting with guests that we didn’t realize the time. You’ll love it though! Once again, Jimmy and Producer Joe hold their anniversary podcast at Hourglass Tavern in NYC. Thanks to Beth & Josh for being such awesome hosts at their restaurant! Jimmy hosted while Producer Joe manned the tech boards while co-hosting. Jimmy welcomed special guests Michael Emerson, William Jackson Harper, Jamal Igle, Rebecca Soler and Liana Kangas. Like every anniversary episode, Jimmy wrote song parodies and recruited friends to be a part of the CNI Chorus. Thanks to Kristen French, Kami Graves, Cheryl Orsini, Rachel Gavaletz, Nic Rockwood and Brianna Melroy for singing their lungs out! And big ups to my newsreaders and reviewers Emily Edwards, Gretchen Souerwine and Ali Sattar.

Such a fantastic night! Thanks to everyone whom attended. We packed the room to standing room only! For reals! Everyone had a great time. Great to see friends and strangers alike that came along to enjoy the show. We couldn’t have made it this far without all of the CNI listeners.

Comics Alternative, On Location: The March Visit to Heroes Aren’t Hard to Find

How Much Is Too Much?

For the March on-location recording at Heroes Aren’t Hard to Find in Charlotte, NC, the topic of discussion is comics adapted into movies and television series (especially superhero properties), and if we’re about to reach the point of oversaturation. Joining Derek in the conversation are shop customers Zyg, Jack, Jesse, Erica, and Christian. All of them are fans of superhero film and TV, and each brings a unique perspective to the discussion. And, as expected, everyone varies in their opinions on how much is too much when it comes to superhero adaptations. Among the various movies and series they discuss are Black Panther, the Iron Man seriesWatchmen, The CrowJustice League, Tim Burton’s Batman, Gotham, the various Netflix series, and Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. They also talk about non-superhero comics adaptations such as LuciferiZombie, Ghost World, and, of course, The Walking Dead. And toward the end of their conversation, everyone expresses her or his own wish list of other properties that could be adapted into television series or films.
