Thunder Talk

Where comedy and commentary collide!

Thunder Talk brings a unique variety show style twist to the fandom podcast genre. Beyond the geeky deep dives, we drop music from some of todays hottest up and coming artists, discuss topics of social and political relevance, and deliver our sideways take on the world at large. If stand-up comedy, NPR, the Millennium Falcon, and classic MTV had a baby, it would be Thunder Talk!
