Ep. 79: A Musical Convincing (w special guest Sam Mastandrea)
August 24, 2020 03:00 PM PDT
It's summer in the city. It's not your typical Lovin Spoonful summer, it's a freaking Covid summer, so Grown Ass Men decided to dig into one of our fave topics; The Convincing. This is where we convince each other that you must check out this book.
This time is different though. We decided to do a musical "convincing" so we called upon honorary GAM and fantastic musician Sam Mastandrea to join us. We chat guilty pleasures, Prince, Hall and Oates, Jefferson Airplane and the great year 1977!
We also send a shout out to recently departed genius inker of Marvel's greatest, Joe Sinnott. You don't want to miss this one.

As everyone knows, the coronavirus is doing damage through out the world. When Grown Ass Men recorded Ep. 77, the virus was just beginning to hit the US and we had no clue what was to happen shortly after. In NYC were we live, the numbers effected are extremely high and we recorded this episode under quarantine.
So what better topic than to discuss how superheros would deal this situation. Would Wolverine observe the quarantine? Does Bruce Banner have the virus if the Hulk contracts it? We also chat about the classic Marvel title What If. Honorary Grown Ass Man Sam Mastandrea joins us for the fun.

Music is helping all of us in this crazy time. But you’re probably sick of listening to ‘Splendid Isolation’ by Warren Zevon on repeat. Well, the Grown Ass Men are here to help by diving deep into the great (and not-so-great) theme songs from James Bond movies, in our brand new quarantine episode! Featuring 007 superfan Gil Sembrano, this one will definitely give you some new tracks to listen to. Oh, and you’ll learn what Thom Yorke thinks is the sexiest song EVER. Stay well, friends!Ep. 76: It's a Xmas convincing!

Happy New Year folks! Hope everyone had a fantastic grown ass holiday where Galactus didn't devour your entire planet!
Every year at this time, Grown Ass Men have a tradition of acknowledging what we really want for the holidays (besides world peace) are comic books. This year we got the Superhero Holiday Grab Bag Treasury editions, so we had to chat about some of the weirdest collections of reprints in a giant over sided book ever put out. Our other tradition is to try to convince each other about other comic book related topics. This years "convincing" needed, uh, not much convincing. Give a listen!
Here's to a great 2020.

November 30, 2019 01:47 PM PST
Ever since Stan Lee died just over a year ago, the Grown Ass Men have been talking about doing a Stan episode. Well, we got lucky because we got to interview writer and editor Danny Fingeroth just as his new book 'A Marvelous Life - The Amazing Story of Stan Lee' was just about to drop. Danny worked with Stan at Marvel and has been a big part of the comic book industry since the 70's! It's a great book which we highly recommend! Do not miss this episode!

October 28, 2019 04:42 PM PDT
On Oct 30th, 1938, radio listeners got a special Halloween gift from a man who would become one of the greatest film-makers ever, Orson Welles. An adaptation H.G. Wells' 'War of the Worlds' aired -- and people were panicked! Just what you want on Halloween, right? I guess it depends on who you ask. It's a must-listen radio program.
Grown Ass Men decided to revisit that historic radio program with Welles expert and friend of the show Jeff Ward. Jeff is a playwright, composer and actor and let's just say he's very knowledgable on this topic.
We also revisit the Marvel Comics War of the Worlds starring the rather mundane Killraven.

Some things need to be digested properly in order to comment intelligently. But, we'll let you decide if we did that because here it is - our reaction to Avengers Endgame! Grown Ass Men have opinions for sure but apparently not enough because we brought honorary GAM Sam Mastandrea along for the ride! Check it out!

Sometimes you have to return to the source. These are tough times and when times are tough, you know who you have to call (hint: its not Ghostbusters). Yes, the first Avenger Captain America!
In this episode we called upon the Captain America expertise of Maine's own Sean Wasson. Sean's a veteran educator but more importantly, he owns every issue of Batman from 1967 on. Join us as we discuss all things Cap - nazi fighting Cap, 50's Cap, who's Cap's best sidekick and Ta-Nehisi Coates' new Marvel run. Check it out!

Writer Doug Bost and musician Adam Bernstein discuss the things that grown men shouldn’t care about -- but these guys do. What’s on the table? Only fun stuff. Episodes focus on all aspects of the comic book universe, from the warehouse of a professional comic book hoarder to interviews with some of the greatest comics creators alive -- Neal Adams, Klaus Jansen, Chris Claremont, and more. With frequent guests, Doug and Adam also cover movies, music, classic TV, and important topics like, “What musical style do you associate with James T Kirk?” (The answer, of course, is Wagner.) And the kicker: Original music by Adam Bernstein in each episode.
