Siskoid Radio: Geek Out! - May 5th

"If you've got a zombie killing kit in the house because, well, ya never know, you might be a geek..."

Season finale! It's a big day: Free Comic Book Day, Cinco de Mayo, Avengers weekend (only going tomorrow, so I can't talk about it), and May the 4th (be with you) thankfully behind us. So I try to touch on it all, but since it IS the show's finale, I've decided on an apocalyptic theme with lots of tunes about the end of the world. All good things... If you couldn't listen or understand my French, I supply the episode's playlist, with You-Tube links where available.
