Andy Kindler is hilarious. Andy’sdorkdom is to dissect famous people’s careers. He also loves an indie comic book. This is the snarkiest episode of the dork forest. Man… it’s so great. We get political and Then Auggie Smith does his LCS audition and his George Lopez set. Oh Hollywood. Heh. Enjoy.

Dan Telfer is a Chicago comic and writer and total fan o’ science! That thing that historians loved so much and some modern folk have so many issues about. Dinosaurs are just the tip of the iceberg here, folks. We taped early in the day and I’m just awake! Heh. This is a great dork on dork dialog. He’s great and you should see him live! Enjoy.

Vilmos is a comic, web designer and podcaster. It’s road comedy stories and Mitch Hedberg is talked about like he was a man. A human who was fallible and funny and a goof. Vilmos loves comedy and, we find out, drumming! Enjoy.

Asterios Kokkinos is a comic and a writer and, really, a dork. Awesomely committed to Star Wars, Star Trek, Pokémon, it just goes on. I admit that I heard him do 5 minutes on Pokémon and needed to hear him talk about anything and everything. We realize that Pokémon is JUST like Sex in the City. Enjoy.
