RevCast: from RevolutionSF.com
Commentary, criticism and comedy about movies, TV and all corners of geeky genres and culture. A sci-fi convention in your pocket.

An extra special roundtable this week.  Our Podcast Queen Deanna Toxopeus is joined by early RevolutionSF contributors, Peggy J. Hailey, Rick Klaw and Mark Finn.  They discuss the early days of RevolutionSF.com as it rose from the ashes of Zealot.com.  The discussion covers some some pretty far ranging topics, including the inevitable discussion of apes.

Given that this is a special edition of the Roundtable, there will be no Nerd News or Nerdliest Thing.

Our theme music this episode is "Cultists On Board" by Darkest of the Hillside Thickets, courtesy of Divine Industries.

Iron Man, once a Marvel B-Lister who has, thanks to a really good movie has become a superstar.  We here at the Revcast decided to spend some time talking about arms dealer turned superhero.  Joining Deanna Toxopeus and Gary Mitchel is Avengers expert and new pulp author, Van Allen Plexico.  They look at the history, the girlfriends, the villains, and the story arcs that stick in their minds.  There is also a rant as Van takes on the Alcoholic Batman label.  So grab your popcorn and enjoy this slightly supersized edition.

It's March kids, and Hollywood has given us some interesting movies to watch.  And Deanna Toxopeus and Gary Mitchel are here to discuss them with you.  They also tired a bold social and technological experement this time.  They tried to tape a podcast when one of the participants using Skype on a Smartphone while driving.  And the experiment?  A horrible failure.  So there is a switch halfway through to a cellphone, hense the noticeable switch in quality.  But that didn't stop them from discussing the Nerd News and the Week in Nerdliness.
