Welcome to 2024, gang. You made it. Pat yourselves on the back. It’s a busy year. We’ve got the Summer Olympics in Paris which could be a lot of fun. We also have a Presidential election this year in the US which will not be fun.
But we’re going to focus on the positive! As I mentioned in the Christmas Day episode, there is now a Patreon subscription available for fans that want ad-free episodes. There will be other perks coming to patrons, but the one that most folks seem to be asking for was a way to avoid the ads. Head to patreon.com/dorkygeekynerdy and get started.
Speaking of getting started, for episode 258 of the show, it’s Deadpool trivia. I wanted to give you plenty of time to be prepared for his third movie this Summer. He’s the most recently created comic book character we’ve tackled, but there’s still plenty of history to dive into.
