The Two Assholes, and all four Guestholes have gathered together to bring you the 2nd Annual Assies, in which we award the best and worst of geek and pop culture for 2009.
This year, we kept the format from the 1st Annual Assies, in that everyone is a winner (or loser), by which we mean that both Assholes, and all of the Guestholes get to give nods for their picks for the best and worst of each category.
The downside to this is that we have a lot of categories, 6 nerds, and a tendency to ramble and get off on tangents. This makes for an entertaining listen, I assure you, but a very long episode. The total runtime for this episode was about 3.5 hours. Therefore, we're going to try a slightly new format.
As Brent had mentioned before, one of our aims for 2010 is to produce shorter episodes, and more of them. Accordingly, we're going to release the 2nd Annual Assies in 4 parts. Organizationally, it doesn't make sense to split this episode up into Episodes 18-21, so it's just Episode 18, released in parts.
If you're a fan of the lengthy episodes, however, don't worry, because the High Quality version that has become a staple of our show will be the full 3.5 hour spectacular.
So, without further ado, give a listen to the first portion of the 2nd Annual Assies.
