Content warning: The webcomic contains scenes of violence, the occasional swear word, and references to genocide. The episode itself only discusses these things as they pertain to the content of the comic.

Consider the burger: What makes up a perfect burger? Should a burger have one patty or two? What's the best cheese for a burger? Can a burger truly be meatless? Why do some people want to ruin their burger by adding tomat...

Content Warning: While this episode basically contains none of these things, Bicycle Boy itself contains scenes of graphic violence, a decent amount of swears, dead bodies, some sexuality, a bit of body horror, and, as the author puts it,  "plenty of other things that might make you uncomfortable."

Spoiler Warning: This episode contains perhaps the most minor of vague spoilers, but nothing extremely specific.

Content Warning: While Izy and I don't go into too many specifics, the featured webcomic does contain graphic depictions of violence involving 17-18-year-olds.

Greetings, friends and welcome to our first minisode. This week I'm going to need a little bit of help from you all. Remember in last week's show notes when I said we'd have a theme song this week? Well, some things went awry in the studio and I ended up making two theme songs.
 
And that's where you all come in, you get to pick the show's theme music! Just head on over to the show's Twitter (...

Yes, it's a two-parter; come join me and my fellow chochachos as we discuss what goes down at a Chochacho Con, how amazing the Achewood fandom is, why the Achewood print omnibus needs to be released within this decade, and more!

(Yes, the background audio is still spotty in some parts, apologies.)

Oh, and here's something that I probably should have added to the first episode, an actual link to Achewood:...

For our first episode, we're going to take a metaphorical journey to a little place called Achewood to hang out with a couple of fans -- or "chochachos", as they liked to be called -- and find out what makes Chris Onstad's webcomic Achewood such an incredible trip into the early days of Internet culture. 

Cool Fact: Throughout its 15-year-run, Achewood has received recognition from a variety of different notable ...
