Paul and Gordie celebrate Boxing Day the old fashioned way, with fifths of scotch and Christmas stories aplenty.

Paul receives many unexpected packages and Gordie gets a great package from the EOC Holiday Exchange, filled with the smell of old comics and autographs. Gordie has found a new vocabulary hiccup and talks PROG. Paul is a great sleeper and doesn't know that WILLIE AMES is now THE BIBLEMAN.  SPACE 1999, FRANK ZAPPA, DWEEZIL ZAPPA, ALICE COOPER, TWISTED FUCKING SISTER, LITA FORD, Y & T, CHEAP TRICK, BLITZEN TRAPPER, PUGWASH, NRBQ, THE MUFFS and REDD KROSS all show up too.

Episode 56 - Everything You Always Wanted to Know About DAVID PRICE* (*...But Were Afraid to Ask)

Gordie goes on a nerd blind date with DAVID PRICE from Eleven O' Clock Comics. If you don't like Gordie's voice, this is the one for you. Who knew DAVID could talk non-stop for two hours straight! David tells us about every town he's lived in, how he met RENEE and meeting knuckleheads at comic cons that lead to podcast empires. We both root for the bull, have animal empathy and are oblivious to bi-racial relationship condemnation and sideways glances.  David says he will come back to another GORDCAST for an actual back and forth conversation and Gordie heads to A.P.E.  Another loooong episode, so enjoy!

Tom Beland finally joins me to talk about comics, comics, comics.
Gordie admits that he isn't exactly sure where Puerto Rico is on a map. Tom tells of sharing Gwen Stacy's death at the dinner table, how Alan Moore intimidates him and that he couldn't write a Kang story if you paid him. This is a longer than usual episode and we get very silly and rambly, so have fun!

(At 1:21 I missed an edit and am too lazy to go back and fix it right now, so skip to 1:23 or enjoy the song.)

Gordcast Episode 6 - Who Do You Trust! Paul Bertolino and Gordie begin by talking about The Who and slowly degenerate into other things as usual. Gordie loves the Tommy film regardless of how horrid it is. Paul tells stories of collecting Who vinyl in thrift stories and as usual, we talk about  Napa memories. We end with shout-outs to our dedicated listeners (...authenticated listeners, that is.)

Gordcast Episode 5 - Ambush! Bridget Rickerson gets fooled into being the first female co-host of The GordCast. Under the guise of "trying out" Skype, I talk to Bridget for the first time in 20+ years.
Bridget reveals her experience with the neighborhood KISS fanatic and subsequent escape, her husband's man-cave and Napa memories. Gordie laughs a lot and hears in detail, the night Bridget's parents were out of town.

Gordcast Episode 4 - The First KISS! Paul Bertolino joins me once again, in our first all KISS podcast. We tell stories of our earliest memories and exposures to The Frightful Four and how we were shaped by them. Gordie tells of his first actual kiss and his smooth ways of getting it done and we compare "KISS restrictions"
Most likely there will be a few all KISS episodes, but this is the first. Enjoy!
