Why is Wonder Woman creepin’ and why is money worthless if you stare at it long enough. These and many other controversial yet brave facts are confronted in this, a very special episode. It’s an Alan Moore-ific time as Nate schools us on the outs and ins of one of the most prolific writers in all of everything. Ryan even tags along to keep us honest and remind us that he deliberately didn’t bother reading most of Mr. Moore’s work j...

Bubastis was done dirty, and Maxwell the magic cat is a credit to his people. These and many other controversial yet brave facts are confronted in this, a very special episode. It’s an Alan Moore-ific time as Nate schools us on the outs and ins of one of the most prolific writers in all of everything. Ryan even tags along to keep us honest and remind us that he deliberately didn’t bother reading most of Mr. Moore’s work just to spi...

Mervyn drew 46 characters all weekend at Fan Expo Dallas, and Nicki probably drew more. These and other very uninteresting stories await your ears and all you have to do is listen. Don't fall asleep before the story about Nicki and the photographer, that was a good one.

Anime, the final frontier. This is a conversation from the Paper Lab Podcast episode seventy seven. Its aimless mission: to explore strange new topics and, to seek out new guests and new idiosyncrasies, to boldly go where no one ever wanted to bother even going before. Now start the show, and see where it takes you, because it sure took us for a ride, with in house guests Winji the Master of the Animes.

We span galaxies of knowledge as we chat about country roads, infrastructure and digital finance while we take a drive through the Florida countryside. It’s a wild ride as we follow Nicki to our promised land after a fun day at Ocala Comic Con, where Mevryn found some goodies to fill the hole in his comic book collection. We don’t actually talk about his collection this episode but, we just thought you should know.

Spencer and Jake are back, for the finale of all finales. You won’t know true chaos until you dare listen to this show. In the dictionary, this episode is the audio file that accompanies the definition of ‘hot mess’, but at least we had fun doing it. At least it seemed like we had fun dancing from accents to ancestry and history to hijinks.

Somehow this episode deep dives into our Megacon adventures. This is the end of day three and boy does it get crazy thanks to Spencer, Jake, and a guy named Morgan. I heard he ran a ship and stole his way to becoming Governor of Jamaica. So prepare yourself for a glorious romp through crowds of fun, as we dissect the ins and outs of mindlessly manning a booth during a pandemic.

Welcome one and all to the greatest show in this particular undisclosed location on earth! We’re out and about and getting down with what is our second in-person show, but technically our third in-person guest, Jake. This one’s a doozy, as we yap about everything from D&D to cake philosophy and Jamaican restaurants. All this while preparing for our first day of Megacon 2021, so sit back, crack open a cold bottle of oat milk and...

Koreans on a Crane or is it Cranes on a Korean? We have no idea but if you know what that answer is write in and let us know. We also go on and on about gaming, movies, and generation gaps to name a few of the many random things Avina and Michael enlighten us about on this very glorious how. Oh, and yes there was ice cream and it was delicious!

Talk about rabbit holes, this week’s show is a definite rabbit chasm. So if that gets your paws digging, get ready for a salubrious sinkhole of solemnity. That’s a sentence written only for alliteration and nothing else, kind of like this aural delight we’ve concocted for you all. We introduce our very special and first in-person guests to the show! Avina and Michael are here to drop knowledge from the past present and the future, ...

It’s Toonami time… no not really. That’s an old thing for old people and it died long ago. Which is convenient because we love dead things, and today we discuss the dead thing that is Toonami. A very popular programming block that Cartoon Network produced in days of yore before streaming and instantaneous ‘content’ was embedded in our collective psyches…. Wait, so you’re saying Toonami has been back since 2012, and everything we ju...

The title says it all, but for this road-tripping doozy we break down some of the popular meal kits on the market. Hello Fresh, Blue Apron, Every Plate, and the dreaded Home Chef get a fairly thorough talking to. This is one of the few cases where we actually don't ramble on randomly as much, so sit back relax and hopefully enjoy!

Guess who’s back? Mr. Nobody, because it’s the same guys you listened to last week. Nate educates Ryan on the finer points of the musician, world traveler and sometimes writer that is Grant Morrison. We even find a bit of time to talk about fandom and getting old somewhere in this tempest of a show. So prepare to learn all there is about this Multiversal personality, even though that’s not very likely.

Today we teach Ryan about the illustrious chaos magician and sometimes writer Grant Morrison. Whether it's a lesson on how to improve fan engagement or just the metaphysics of physics, we tackle some of it. There is just no way we could do the great Mr. Morrison any justice in little over an hour. So here we have the first part of a two part epic, but even by the second part (whenever that shows up), still don’t expect us to ev...

It’s a blast from the past this week as James steps into the interviewee’s chair and takes us for a trip down memory alley. This is quite the journey from comics and anime to videogames, as we try to trace the origins of his and Mervyn’s friendship since High School. We even learn a few things about life and child commerce along the way. Brace yourselves and prepare for true glory dear listeners.

Action, adventure, intrigue? None of these things abide in this podcast, but we do chat about a lot of things that harbour these necessary virtues of entertainment. Namely Netflix Manga adaptations, questionable art and animation along with a bit of history and theology to boot. We even diverged into a chat about Gears of War… again. So sit back, relax and don’t worry, Mervyn only gets slightly gatekeepy when he starts yammering on...

Mike Tyson once said, “...everyone has a plan until they get punched in the face…” or something like that. This episode is certainly one such occasion, but unlike the punch in the face, it was quite a fun time chatting with Joel and catching up on his newfound love ‘Record of Ragnarok. Let’s just hope that next time we can get him and Ryan on at the same time so we can finally talk about just how fungible Spiderman is or isn’t.

Mervyn and Nicki did soldier on and they decided to salvage what they could from a very pleasant and amusing conversation with Sorian and Joel. This was originally episode 56 but alas even after almost 10 episodes of tinkering to no avail it’s still seeing the light of day. So sit back and don’t relax too much, because this may or may not be an aural delight. That’s not the fault of our guests though. If it helps any, just do what ...
