- 13 Years After Women in Refrigerators
A collection of articles reflecting on what has happened in comics since Gail Simone’s now infamous Women in Refrigerators site. Have women characters in comics gotten anywhere since? I found the reflection on Ms. Marvel particularly amazing in just how much has happened to one character.
- Do You Believe in Sherlock?
Apparently there is a movement going on and I’m just disappointed that I haven’t seen any of this in New York City!

I finally caught up of episodes of the VEEF show.

- More Valkyries than Valhalla: An overview of Valkyrie toys through the years. The podcast mostly focuses on the iconic VF-1 Valkyrie but also touches on many of the other toys in the Macross Universe as well.
- In Memory of Clan Smoke Jaguar: Battletech is the American mecha franchise. It is also an incredibly complex tactical role-playing game that has spawned a slew of multimedia spinoffs. This is Andrew’s second attempt to tackle the beast and this time he has backup.
