What The Hell Are You Listening To? (In the voice of my dad.)

This is what I do with my free time. I record podcasts where I laugh with (and at) old comic books. Old comic books are a mix of craftsmanship and reckless abandon. Professional writers and artists forced to churn out month after month of paper symphonies for the kids. This led to some pretty weird story ideas, which I feel compelled to talk about.  

Below is just a sampling of the podcasts I have done. (Search iTunes for Tom vs. Comics for more.) My podcast has been downloaded over 1.5 million times and was featured on the USA Today pop culture blog.  

This is what I sound like when I'm excited. 


Tom's Week With Jimmy Olsen #2

I like to believe that Superman got a glossy photo taken while holding a giant white board. It solves layout problems for where to put his autograph.

Tom's Week With Jimmy Olsen #1

Hey Everyone,

As some of you might know, I used to do a podcast called Tom vs. The JLA (then the Flash, then Aquaman, just got to tomvsdcu.posterous.com) I stopped because portfolio school got too hectic. Now I'm looking for a copywriter gig and I got some free time, so let's get this show on the road. My creative energies need to go somewhere. I am going to be talking about Jimmy Olsen for the next week. Embrace it. Also take a look at my portfolio. 

The worst game show of all time.
