Podcasts for Comic Book Movie Nerds and Enterprising Side Hustlers

Mobile Phone with wired headphones playing a podcast.
If you haven’t discovered Podcasts yet you’re missing out on an entire world of ready to listen to content covering a whole library of interests that you can download into your favorite mobile podcast app and listen to at your convenience. If you have I thought I’d spend take the opportunity to recommend some of the podcasts I’m listening to.

My podcast app of choice is Beyond Pod for Android but any podcast app will probably do. Once you have your app installed search for these shows from within the app.

Comic Book Movie Podcasts

If you haven’t noticed I’m a total comic book movie nerd but I don’t really know anyone who likes these movies as much as I do. Consequently I seek out podcasts where I can hear all kinds of discussions surrounding these movies, from the moment they are first announced, to a scene by scene, spoiler breakdown of the final movie release (after I’ve seen the film of course).
  • Fatman Beyond - Director, Kevin Smith, and screen writer Marc Bernardin, deliver a usually live show (from the Scum and Villainy Cantina), talking all things Marvel, DC, and other comic book related topics. Very casual show with plenty of humor and the occasional guest.
     
  • Batman-on-Film - Official podcast of the Batman-on-Film website features site founder Bill ‘Jett’ Ramey and a selection of regular contributors. While the focus is primarily on Batman movies the discussion does extend to other upcoming DC film releases.
     
  • DC Films Squadcast - Similar to Batman-on-Film but with deeper discussions on all DC movie properties. Hosts Tim Yoko and Scott McClellan, while DC fans, will still let you know if something isn’t quite what they’d hoped for, but generally with a constructive discussion that may get you thinking.
     
  • MCU Fan Show - Sean Gerber and Paul Herman dissect all things MCU related. Sean is by far one of the most knowledgeable comic book movie podcasters around, with not just comic book movie content but plenty of understanding of the movie business behind the scenes. (Really wish he’d bring back his DCU Fan Show as well). This show is a must for MCU fans.
     
  • The Weekly Planet - An all Australian Podcast that’s gained international following thanks to hosts Mr Sunday Movies (James Brooks) and Nick Mason, who always deliver highly entertaining and hilarious commentary, yet still manage to dive deep, on all things comic book movie related (or even sometimes not related).

Podcasts for Enterprising Side Hustlers

Just like with comic book movies, I don’t really know anyone who is constantly working on some kind of side hustle, trying to make enough to cover living expenses, so I never actually have to work a ‘regular job’. Again I turn to podcasts for tips and advice.
  • Side Hustle School - Chris Guillebeau has become synonymous with inspiring people to live independent lives outside of the 9 to 5 rat race. Side Hustle school is his daily, ten minute podcast featuring real people and how they started their side hustles. Listen to the daily show or explore the 3-4 year back catalogue of shows for side hustles you may like to try yourself. Well worth exploring the Side Hustle School website for episodes too for all the show notes. Chris has also written a number of books including The $100 Start Up.
     
  • The Mind Your Business Podcast - A very different type of podcast, host, James Wedmore, explores how you can be more successful through mindset and thinking your way to success, often with guests and success stories from his Business By Design Course. It’s all a bit Woo-woo (as he sometimes says) but I’ve actually had a few shows really be more than helpful, and I’m definitely not into ‘woo-woo’ thinking. Again worth exploring the show’s website for back episodes. I highly recommend Episode 125 if you’re dealing with any kind of long term pain that isn’t responding to medical treatment (be warned, you may not like what you hear but it’s definitely worth hearing).
     
  • ProBlogger Podcast - Not currently actively publishing episodes, I’m still mentioning it because it’s well worth diving into the back catalogue to do the 31 days to a better blog challenge. If you’re in any way interested in starting a money making blog, host, Darren Rowse, is the recognized guru of earning a full time living from blogging. He’s still very active on the ProBlogger website (as he should be).
Do you listen to any good podcasts that you would like to recommend? I’m always on the look out for new shows (particularly comic book movie and business podcasts). Feel free to recommend your favorite shows in comments below.

How to Transfer Any Line Art to Your Griptape - Easy Skateboard Griptape Art Tutorial

Dog Star Griptape Art by TET Griptape art is once again gaining popularity amongst modern skateboarders. For those of us who have tried to create our own griptape art, using paint pens, you'll know reproducing your design onto the grip, without making any mistakes is incredibly challenging. Mostly because you just have to go for it and draw the design freehand, with paint pens, directly onto the griptape. You can make the odd mistake here or there but if you get the proportions of the design completely wrong, it can be very difficult to fix. Often you just have to live with the mistake. To address the problem I've come up with an easy way anyone can transfer a line art design to their griptape, removing almost all the anxiety of getting the proportions wrong. In fact, you could do this with any line art design, even if you have no drawing skill at all. Watch the video below to see my technique in action and/or skip past the video where I highlight the basic steps to get your de

The Braille Skateboarding App - How it Changed My Mind on Switch Skating

My Profile on the Braille Skateboarding App. Braille Skateboarding launched it's new Skateboarding App worldwide on November 23rd, 2020. About a month prior to that they did a 'soft launch' via email for anyone living in Australia. I'm guessing this was to give the app a final test in the real world before launching it proper. Rather than explain what it is, watch Aaron Kyro, founder of Braille Skateboarding, run you through the app in the launch video below.  In a nutshell the app is virtually everything Braille has to offer accessed right from your phone, from tutorials to the Braille Army Community. The app is free but you can unlock more features if you upgrade to a paid membership. Braille App Trick List. One of the apps unique free features is keeping track of the tricks you've learned and giving you an overall score so you have some way to measure your progression. There is an extensive list of tricks, covering all types of skateboarding, categorized by diff

Guest Post: MY SOOPER DOOPER NEW CONSERVATORY/ART STUDIO!

Jo's new Art Studio/Conservatory. Today's guest post is by Artist, Writer, and Mental Health Advocate, Jo B Creative who writes for her blog,  Creating My Oddessey . Y ou should see our (almost) brand new conservatory, half of which is my art studio. 'Lucky me!' I think to myself. Not every creative bod can boast that. It's HUGE! Like a giant greenhouse. We first moved to our pleasant cul-de-sac house - great for raising kids - when our son, who's on the cusp of thirty-one, was four. One of the main reasons that we wanted it was that, apart from its location on the fringes of a historic market town in rural Hampshire, UK, it had a sizable conservatory looking onto the back garden. It was brown wood framed and had a corrugated transparent roof sloping down from downstairs ceiling height. On the face of it, it doesn't sound that glamourous, but we loved the idea of a conservatory. Luxury! I even liked the red brick walls which it was built against -

Update on my Cheap Skateboard Weeks Later

TET with $20.00 Mambo, Department Store Skateboard. In my previous post and video titled Can You Learn the Basics on a Cheap Skateboard? I began an experiment to see if basic, department store skateboards are at least good enough for beginners to get their first taste of skateboarding without spending a lot of money. (Spoiler - they are). Grrr Dog Popsicle  Skateboard See more deck shapes Just to reinforce my point I decided to film a follow up video a few weeks later showing that my cheap skateboard is still holding up to learning the basics. Admittedly I'm not the most hardcore of learner skaters when it comes to hours spent on the board. On average I manage around thirty minutes to an hour, five days a week. The point is that the board is still holding up to the tricks I've been learning despite my weight being about 16 kilos heavier than the maximum weight recommended for the board (50 kilos). Unlike those Youtube skaters that almost seem like their

Course Review: YouTube for Bosses - Sunny Lenarduzzi. How to grow your YouTube Channel into a Business

YouTube for Bosses Free Mug...  or the most expensive mug  you'll ever buy? I've been subscribed to  Sunny Lenarduzzi's YouTube channel for a few years, learning a lot on how to grow a following on sites like YouTube and Instagram. If you have any interest in growing your own YouTube channel I'd highly recommend watching some of Sunny's videos on the subject.  Definitely explore her 2019 back catalogue for the most useful information. This year she's been on a bit of a 'being authentic' pivot that, personally, doesn't resonate all that much with me (but probably speaks volumes to anyone with similar experience). I'm not saying she shouldn't or isn't being authentic, it's just I didn't subscribe to hear stories about her life journey. To get back on track, Sunny runs a successful online business with her flagship course, YouTube for Bosses , a stand alone paid course that does act as something of a gateway to further paid (but opt

One Week on Light n' Easy #lightneasy

My partner, Enigma, and I recently decided to try Light n' Easy to replace all our daily meals in an effort to eat healthier (and not have to think at all about cooking evening meals). Enigma is about to embark on her third week of their full menu but I caved after one and opted just to get the dinners.

Course Review: Passive Income for Graphic Designers - Sell Your Designs, Graphics, Fonts & More

Passive Income is that somewhat elusive idea of earning a living even while you're sleeping. Often considered a 'scam' term used by charismatic marketers to sell you a dream of instant riches asterixed with, in very tiny print "results may vary". Passive Income Course for Graphic Designers is a Udemy course by Skybox Creative (a.k.a. designer, Angelina Samadhi) that guides you through the actual work you need to do (a point that is often glossed over by those charismatic marketers) to create a passive income business selling digital art and design products online. Note that I am an Udemy Affiliate and links within this article to the course are affiliate links. You don't have to use them but it does help keep this site free. Having said that, Passive Income for Graphic Designers is a course I have completed in full, not simply to write a review, but to actually learn from Angelina's experience... because I'm definitely not earning a living from affil
