Outspoken writer Mike "Mcbeardo" McPadden has had a long and tawdry history with cinema, including writing for online phenomenon Mr. Skin as well as Hustler and VH1 and Esquire. He joins Wendi for an engrossing and fun talk about his life in NY during the grindhouse era, his epic book "Heavy Metal Movies" and his current research into the history of teen sex comedies, as well as their shared disdain for ironic "so bad its good" films.
You can pick up his book "Heavy Metal Movies" at www.bazillionpoints.com and get a cool back patch for your denim jacket!

Mitch Gerads has made a name for himself as the artist on such military themed comics as "The Activity", "The Punisher" and now DC/Vertigo's "Sheriff of Babylon"- a murder mystery set in the early days of the Iraq war. He discusses how, with writer Tom King, they crafted the look of a very specific time that wasn't heavily documented. Gerads puts emphasis on everything from body armor to tea cups in his own inimitable style. He and Wendi also discuss how they'd redesign cereal boxes, and whether or not he can draw sexy ladies.
