This week, Mina and I Geek Out on the recently concluded first season of HBO’s “True Detective” and the weird cut-up Philippine theater version of 300:Rise of an Empire (and why it’s kind of like The Mighty Ducks). We also discuss what makes a television pilot fail, and if the new tv show “Star-Crossed” is “Roswell” crossed with District Nine, or just “Alien Nation” with abs and less awesomeness.[…]
Before we interview Ms. Bianca Bernardino, Mina and I geek out on the stuff we did over the weekend: the Luna East vol. 1 launch, the Summit Pop Fiction Festival, and the Korean film (with Chris Evans, yay!) Snowpiercer.[…]
Hosts Mina and Tania interview author Anne Plaza (In Over Her Head) about her stories and writing and cosplay. Anne also answers questions from listeners. Then we geek out over the tv show Supernatural, and talk about the Kids These Days (Luna East Arts Academy vol. 1), the new anthology featuring stories by Anne and Mina.
Author Leng de Chavez (aka Shirlengtearjerky on Wattpad) talks about her books, the characters she’s written, life as a young author, and her own love life. She also answers burning questions from fans.[…]
In the first part of episode 6, hosts Mina geeks out about the romantic comedy Bride for Rent and ponders on the important question: Is Xian Lim a contender to the crown of King of the Rom-Com?

Budjette Tan, writer and co-creator of the amazing Trese comic book series, sat down with us (figuratively) to answer questions from our listeners and talk about how Trese came about, his creative process and what he thinks of a Hollywood television adaptation of his comics.
