This week, Eric and Bryan discussing the fascinating history behind magic, from shamans all the way up to Penn & Teller and beyond. This one is definitely not to be missed. Enjoy!

Anyone who knows me is made painfully aware of my Kevin Smith obsession within the first few minutes of meeting me. I have a knack for inserting pieces of his screenplays into everyday conversation. So when I found out that Kevin Smith and Jason Mewes were coming to my small town of Durango, Colorado to record a live podcast… needless to say, there were white and brown stains I had to wash out of my trousers.
Yes, yes. I’m a feminist. Listeners of our Nerds on Film podcast have been quite aware of this for some time. Feel free to shed your image of man-hating, bra burning feminazis however. We come in all different shades, and yes, feminists have a sense of humor too. Specifically, clever nerds and artists who have started what I deem (in all my righteous power as galactic empress) to be the greatest thing to ever happen to the internet: The Hawkeye Initiative.
Okay, I’ll be the first to admit it; I spend too much money on comics. It’s not my fault, really. They are just so fun to read and those price tags only say 2.99. With my iPad, I’ve gotten even worse. Instead of facing the register $25 total, I just buy them all via Comixology and only see a $6 receipt from iTunes every few days. My girlfriend saw my reading list last night and asked just how many series I am reading. It was hard to come up with a total; there are just so many each week. Well it’s time to come out of the shadows. I shall proudly stand up for the comics I love, and, who knows, maybe you can give them a try too, but watch that iTunes bill.
