Check out the All-New ANTiFanboy Podcast
Back in 2006, a group of angry young comic book nerds started a podcast with the focus of highlighting which comics that released that week were the must-read books but as the show grew in popular, it expanded into a show about video games, movies, television, comics, and everything else in between. Just remember one thing: We don't talk. We argue!

Things that happened the week of 12/14/2014

Welcome to a very late edition of “Things that happened the week of” You can thank family parties and Christmas shopping for that. The weird thing about the end of the year is there generally not that many new announcements going on in the news. That being said there’s no lack of DRAMA! The last few weeks the Sony hacks have been taking over headlines in almost every medium. The biggest story was Sony’s “Will they? Won’t they?” approach to releasing  the film, “The Interview”. First they were getting pressure from other studios, than the theaters. Then they decided to cancel the screening altogether. The President calls Sony a bunch of SISSIES. Sony goes aw “WTF bro?” Then the hackers go “aw it’s cool now, we don’t care” so with all that garbage. I guess we are getting the movie after all! So with that my brain hurts and enjoy all the goofy stuff that happened this week.
