Like many of you I grew up watching Saturday morning cartoons. As a matter of fact, I called Saturday “cartoon day” until I was about seven years old. Back in the golden era of Saturday morning animated entertainment we had incredible (yet bizzaro) shows like Transformers, Thundercats, and the U.S.A. Cartoon Express. While programming like Star Wars: The Clone Wars still provides kids with a bit of “magic”, I fear that the days of utterly ridiculous 80s-style cartoons are long gone… Enjoy this April fools joke from the fine folks at IGN. For the record… I would watch the poop out of this show.
Being stuck in transit for about an hour every day means we’re always on the lookout for a new podcast. Sure, we’ve had lists in the past of some of the podcasts we enjoy, but it’s been a few months since we’ve added anything new. You may know Aisha Tyler from Talk Soup, or perhaps her stand up comedy, but did you know Aisha is a big time nerd? The latest episode of her podcast “Girl on Guy” (careful when you Google that) features Chuck’s Zachary Levi and contains just about as much nerdery as one of our OWN podcasts… and that’s really saying something. If you’re looking for a damn funny podcast with a sweet injection of nerd-culture then do yourself a favor and check out Girl on Guy! It’s only on its 6th episode so you can still feel like you were one of its original fans before it blows up… which it will. Check out the latest episode HERE.
