Thanks to you, the first Top 5 of 2014 episode was a huge success!

And you know what they say in Hollywood – If it works once, why not make a sequel?

This time I’m bringing in Jason Tabrys, freelance writer for websites like NerdBastards.com, Uproxx, Cracked, Comic Book Resources, and more, to give us the rundown on the year that was.

Show Notes:

Intro: “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas” by Billy Joel, Live in Lowell 2011

Episode 4 – Top 5 of 2014: Steve Steward


I had a really original idea for the end of the year – LISTS!

I know what you’re saying – Rob, have you lost your mind? What are you even talking about?

It’s  crazy – ludicrous, even – but hear me out.

See, it’s the end of the year, so everybody is looking back and trying to categorize everything that happened.  But the big twist here is, instead of just keeping a mental catalog of your favorite things to yourself, why not talk about it with other people!?

I know, you guys, I know.

But I think people would really respond to that!  I mean, why aren’t there dozens of year-end lists on the web?  It seems like such a simple concept, but I guess it took a real man of ideas to finally put it all together.

So, up until Christmas, I’m going to bring you a handful of interviews I did with some of the cool people in my life to learn about their Top 5 things of 2014.

Seriously, you guys, it’s going to be an extravaganza of epic proportions!
