I've given the guys at Smash Fiction a shout out before, but now I have a more personal reason: I've been invited to be an advocate! I'm really excited to work with people I've been listening to for a couple years now.
If you're not familiar with their podcast, they're basically a geek fight style show. They take two pop culture icons and put them in a battle of strength, of wits, or who can build a better start-up that will impress the Sharks. I'm actually not really joking on that last bit. You see, they have three rounds. Opening arguments, rebuttals, and finally the lightning round, in which I've heard their contestants be put into the weirdest of situations.
It's run by a really good friend of mine from my old wrestling days, Miles Schneiderman, though I always knew him as Miles Johnson, one half of the best damned announce team in (Flagstaff) Pro Wrestling!
I'm not sure when it's going to air, but I'll be recording it next week. Right now, I'm spending every moment not used for The Paladin to research my chosen champion and their opponent. I'm not sure if I can say anything about who's in the fight, but I will share this: My very general calculations on the Midgard Serpent suggest it weighs about 124 trillion tons.
