Breaking Geek Radio: The Podcast is about analyzing geekdom and the things we like: an in-depth examination of movies, television, and culture. Expect reviews, a look at entertainment controversies, and other fun content! This Podcast is a once a week release coming out every Monday!
In this week’s episode, Jonesy (@sirjonesiest), Nick (@LRM_Nick), and Jammer (@JAMTheWriter) speak with Action Designer Christopher Clark Cowan Twitter:(@officialcowan), YT/ IG: (@rivenx3i). Not only has he had a hand in great Hollywood films like Kingsman: The Golden Circle, Rogue One, Solo, and the upcoming The King’s Man, but he’s also produced a couple of amazing short action videos on YouTube that have taken the web by storm.
If you’ve somehow missed them, you can check them out above. Inspired by the anime series My Hero Academia, they show off a group of fighters going at it, superhero powers (or Quirks) and all!
In our discussions, we go through Chris’ career, his influences, his love of anime, music, and all-around geeky goodness! This is NOT an episode to be missed!
