I've had no blurb for this and not had a chance to listen yet so cant give details. I can tell you the girls check out issue 334 of the Megazine and odds are they go on a lot about how much they love Colin MacNeil's art. I can also hazard a guess there is some swearing and as the podcast goes on they become slightly less intelligible. In other words, it'll be another awesome one

The 1995 Judge Dredd movie is once again picked over and picked on by John 'Commando Forces' Burdis, Jon Davis-Hunt and Ben Willsher (with Iz McAuliffe standing in for Rich). The guys had huge sound issues so please excuse the not-so-brilliant sound quality, and they also experienced a lot of tech issues so the conversation is a bit choppy to say the least...and as a final kick in the nuts, Iz didn't successfully save the very last part of the conversation so it ends a bit abruptly.

In this one Rich and Flint are joined by Mark : The Legendary Shark from the 2000AD forums to look at progs 1738 & 39. They are also joined by the much missed Zippo lighter for the first 5 minutes (sorry about that).

I think I cut out MOST of the offensive stuff, but sure there's still something in there to get you going. As well as the progs we discuss Mark's recent cameo in 2000AD and the recent announcement that 2000AD is going weekly in the US.

In honour of this being the first time Rich and Flint have recorded together in ages, this is a bit of a greatest hits episode. So in other words Flint calls something "sh*t", Rich is offensive about gypsies, creators have the piss taken out of them, beers are drunk and the plot subtleties of entire issues are avoided in order to concentrate on a single upskirt shot of Judge Anderson.

As always, the progs in question (1736 & 1737) are spoiled and the language is non kiddie friendly from the start.

With Flint still M-I-A and Richard getting sick of the sound of his own voice we've drafted in Iz from the Megacast and Lizzie Boyle aka Lady Festina from the 2000AD boards to look at progs 1734 & 5.

As always the progs in question are discussed without fear of spoilers and the language isn't suitable for the kiddies.

With Flint still AWOL Rich is joined by Kehaar of the Dissecting Worlds podcast to discuss progs 1731-33 and midget boobs.

As always, expect spoilers for the progs in question, non kiddie friendly language and most offensive of all this week, a Scouse accent!!

Megacast Ep 5

Its another interview podcast and this time the Megacast girls are joined by Dredd artist Colin MacNeil to discuss his work and answer questions posed by users of the 2000AD forums and readers of the ECBT2000AD website.

One point of note : At the time of recording Colin was down to attend the Bristol Comic con which is unfortunately no longer the case (which the girls are particularly gutted about).

The Megacast Ep 4

Iz and Stacey (aka The Whittle) are back to work through issues 307 and 308 of the Judge Dredd Megazine.

As always the issues mentioned are spoiled, the language is not for kids and a fair bit of wine is drunk.

Fun stuff.

In this special episode Rich is joined by Lee and Stacey from the Small Press Big Mouth podcast, and also by 2000AD writer Alec Worley to discuss the Stallone Dredd movie. This is of course done over a few beers but as the table was split 50/50 between haters and supporters there probably isnt, for once, as much swearing as you'd expect.

Special guest appearance by my effin Zippo lighter in the last 20 minutes (sorry)

Ep50 - ECBT2000AD

Really? 50 episodes? Man, we need to get out more.

Anyway, progs 1723-25 are discussed with the levels of seriousness and dignity you've come to expect. Flint manages to find boobs in strips that dont even contain any and Richard does his best not to offend anyone this week  -cough-

As always, spoilers and non kiddie friendly language throughout.

Ep49 - ECBT2000AD

Richard is joined by Stacey Whittle and Pete Wells to bring the podcast scarily up to date by looking at progs 1720-22. Along the way they touch on girlie Daleks, Celine Dion, the joys of all night pasties and for some reason decide to tackle the delicate subject of racism in comics whilst all being slightly drunk.

As always, there are spoilers for the progs in question and language not suitable for anyone. Having a few beers prior to listening to this one is strongly advised.

Ep48 - ECBT2000AD - Covers Special

In this special episode, Rich is joined by Pete Wells of the 2000AD covers blog to go over their favourite covers of the last 12 months and talk about what makes a cool cover image and which covers were the most popular with the users of the 2000AD forums.

Not suitable for people sensitive to swearing or comedy Geordie accents.
