Comics Recs for this episode:

This week, Templemarker plays sherpa through the soap operatic wilds of Marvel, DC, and indie comics. We talk about how to get your toes wet in the twisty, confusing world of sprawling and contradictory canons, show you the ropes on the stories to read and the ones to avoid, and give those of you already chomping at the bit for the 2012 Avengers movie some context for the film. And then, we drop a righteous mountain of fandom and canon recs for you guys — happy reading! The comics blog MK mentions at the end of the recording isComics212.net. TempleMarker’s Generation Kill intro post can be found over here.

Music this week: Opening music: Calculation, by Regina Spektor. Closing music: Long Division, by Death Cab for Cutie

Music for this episode:

Forgive us our long and totally impromptu hiatus! But we’re back (a little early, even! Sort of!) this week with Pru and Til_Midnight nattering about korean dramas. Why are they so addictive? What’s the cycle of consumption on these things like? How do they get churned out so quickly? How are people with � presumably � otherwise good taste in media turning into vein-tapping smack addicts when it comes to this business? Especially with all the amnesia, convenient car accidents, and inevitable everybody dying of stupid diseases that are probably fake? Let us take you on a magical journey into Asia, drinking in tents, and the closest thing we’re ever likely to get to a film version of a romance novel.

Fic Recs for this episode:

This week on /report, we’re joined by Cherrybina to chat about porn, porn, and when we’re done with that, some more porn. Well, we start off by answering some of our backlog of listener questions, but then we get straight to the smut — what makes it hot, what makes it not, how we write it, why we read it, and horrifying childhood tales of erotica discovery and humiliation in bookstores. So plug in, turn up the volume, and crank on your iBuzz. (PS: If you actually turn on your iBuzz while listening to this, please don’t tell us.)

Fic Recs for this episode:

Sorry we’re late! First Pru and the Hoyden were drinking their way throuh Spain and then MK had the death flu for about a week. Fail.

This week we talk about Fringe, The Good Wife, CSI NY, and The Mentalist, do a brief foray into your submissions for the Bad Fic Strong Like Ox challenge, and then move right on to the real meat – our very first Author Talk! We asked The Hoyden every question you sent us and made her answer them, whether she liked it or not.

Fic Recs for this episode:

Welcome back to yet another week of /reporter-y goodness with The Hoyden as a special guest. This week we talk about how our tentative quality rating on NCIS this week, discuss keeping boys as pets (what else are you going to do with them anyway?), yammer on about Sherlock, and discuss our ongoing Why Are We Even Dating You Anymore relationship with Hawaii 5-0.

Also! Don’t forget that next week we will be recording our first ever Author Talk with The Hoyden , so please send us questions you’ve always wanted to ask her — about life, the universe, writing, what her hopes and dreams are, why she hangs out with us losers — to our twitter account or email us at slashreport at gmail.com.

Manga recs for this episode:

Come one, come all (no, seriously), /reporters! After several geologic eras of my incubating whatever disease killed Gwyneth Paltrow in Contagion, we’re finally back to Sunday evening posting! This week mklutz and I are joined by Lianne Sentar of Sleep Is For The Weak [Here’s a link to her LJ, and her other works too] to talk about yaoi, boys love, some of its history, some of its many questionable and delightful facets, to give the curious or the nostalgic recommendations, and then we spend some time advocating mklutz’s future career in audio porn.

(Fair warning to listeners, as a natural result of the subject matter, we talk quite a bit about dubious consent and nonconsensual sex.)

Fic Recs for this episode:

Much delayed, it’s a mini episode of /report all about Merlin. There are loads of spoilers for Series 4, so be prepared for that (aired episodes only). This is also a special episode because this episode is the first to not be hosted on Cloudly.

Guys, we recorded for over an hour this week before scrapping the episode and re-recording on a different topic entirely. If we sound punchy at all it’s because it was late in England and in Canada. (Oops?)

But! This week we cover a delightful range of children’s and young adult books, which we hope you will enjoy, and we finish up with some book recs for you.

As usual the iTunes feed will be up later. Since it’s a week about children’s books we don’t actually have any fic recs for you. Go read a book! You can follow us on twitter over here for other updates.

Fic Recs for this episode:

  • Will go up here later maybe.

This week’s episode is fiiiiinally finished. We’re both pretty messed up during this week’s episode due to illness and various fails, so please enjoy Pru and MK less-censored-than-usual.

This week we discuss Fringe, NCIS, Good Wife, NCIS L-Gay, Mentalist, Dresden Files, the great Delicious departure, and more. We have a Fandom Safari, a boatload of recs for you, and some fail. I’m sure you’ll really enjoy it.

Our RSS feed can be found over here and will update uh… later. Maybe tonight. Maybe tomorrow, depending on how hard I crash after this. When it does, itunes or whatever podcasting software you’re using should automatically download the new episode.
