A few months ago a friend of mine embarked on a bit of a venture with some associates - including myself - to produce a podcast covering a wide range of nerd-related material from movies to gaming to random popular culture to just plain old shouting matches (the most fun). Because that's sure a niche that no one's bothered to try filling, right?
But all joking aside, I'm excited to present The Load Bearing Bosses. And just so you know we're "official" we even have a logo. . .
Ain't he a precious little dictator? I think we should call him Atlas.
So for those of you who don't keep up with the parlance, "load-bearing boss" is the title of a common archetype in fiction, who - upon their demise - triggers the destruction of their lair, home base, or possibly even planet. The most famous example is probably Sauron from The Lord of the Rings.
Though on balance that might not be a great result to strive for at the end of each episode. . .
Anyway, the Load Bearing Bosses are searchable and subscribable on iTunes, are playable on computers, smartphones, tablets, and iPods, are followable on Twitter (@lbbosses) and are generally something you could be following. Along with the podcast itself, there are several other things we have in the pipeline, including Let's Plays, possibly a charity fundraiser, and even a special project that is under wrap for the moment.
So keep an eye out.
