Between the Cons

a podcast for movies/tv, gaming, sci-fi, and all things between comic-cons

Between the Cons is a bi-weekly podcast for movies/tv, gaming, sci-fi, and all things between comic-cons.

For us, life between comic-cons is an exercise in getting to the next comic-con, but seeing as how that can lead to pining and a lack of productivity, we decided to fill the gap. Between the Cons is a weekly podcast by a handful of resident nerds who didn’t choose the nerd life, the nerd life chose them.

The content of the podcast ranges from show to show, depending on what the hot topics are in pop culture, but we keep it all somewhat confined to a handful of segments. Thursday episodes are almost always exclusively PINEAPPLE!, and the Monday episodes change between Topic Thunder, Books!, Roundtable, or Meet the Geek, and usually end with What's Your Jam?

PINEAPPLE! is our rapid-fire, nerdy news section that scratches any itch you may have from TV, movies, games, comics, and sci-fi.

What’s that? You want to know more about mutants? Or maybe you want to know how comic books are actually made? Topic Thunder is the segment where we dig deep to the depths of geek.

Do you want to go twice as high? Then take a look, it's in Books!, our segment fully dedicated to the books and comics that we've been reading lately. We review the books, give some mostly spoiler-free summaries, and tell you why you should add them to your reading list.

You like movies? We like movies. Most of the time. In our Roundtable segment, we talk about the latest blockbusters taking (or breaking) the silver screen. We rate them, talk about our favorite and least favorite moments, and most importantly, warn you before the spoilers flow.

We always want to know more about anything going on in the geek-scape, and who better to ask then the source? In Meet the Geek, we sit down with people and companies affiliated with our fandoms and pick their brains for all of the things we want to know.

Finally, we want to talk about what is making our motors hum. What’s Your Jam? lets you know what we’re digging at the moment, be it nerdy or not.

  • SAY WHAT?!? • ★★★★★
    Thanks Sean and Chris for offering a helpful and expansive podcast in half the time of most of the other geek oriented casts out there. Y'all have saved me tons of time trying to keep up with all the wonderful stuff of nerdom. This podcast has a respectful mixture of everything; and, not to mention, is fun and informative. Thanks for the effort guys 'pineapple'...

  • FUN AND INFORMATIVE • ★★★★★
    These guys are great! They are able to discuss nerdy things while not putting off the jaded nerd vibe, which is refreshing. Simply put, their discussions regarding comics have lit a fire in me to seek out a comic series to get into! Also, I learn stuff from them. This most recent episode even taught me how to deal with pepper eye, if you want to acquire that life hack, you'll need to subscribe and listen for yourself!! You won't be disappointed.

  • FANTASTIC PODCAST ABOUT ALL THINGS CON • ★★★★★
    Love this show - Sean and Chris are hilarious, the segments are well defined, and they cover things that are all within the Comic con realm. Last year was my first time to DCC, and I was blown away by the massive amout of stuff and interests that was there, yet it all has a certain feel about it, and I think these guys capture that. Pineapple is awesome, but I'd love more What's Your Jam - hearing what people are spending their precious time and money on is super interesting. Keep up the great work guys! And let's get some fun bumper music!!

  • SPORTING GOOD TIMES • ★★★★★
    The intellectual equivalent of a slap-fight between two nitwits, and as yet no one has died during a broadcast. Would rate 10 stars if I could.

  • FUN STUFF • ★★★★★
    Exhuberant, playful, energetic, and at times surprisingly insightful. A peppy and enjoyable podcast with great production and a lot of heart. Recommended for fans of The Nerdist.

  • AMIDST THE CONGRESS • ★★★★★
    These boys have it going on and are rather informative. I can't decide who has a sexier voice; Sean, Chris, or Outlaw Steve?

  • LIKE HANGING OUT WITH OLD FRIENDS • ★★★★★
    Geeks have inherited the earth, but so often you find they have gotten really pretentious and have forgotten about the joy that comes with all the things we love. The guys at Between the Cons are unashamedly enthusiastic about all the good and bad in what we love. It's like I'm back in college hanging out with friends talking long into the night about comics!

  • GREAT FIND • ★★★★★
    I stumbled upon a card advertising this podcast at a local coffee shop and it has been one of my favorite podcast finds. Great for both the newcomer to comics and the hardcore comic nerd. Keep it up, guys!
