Earlier today, the comic book podcasting community lost one of its founding fathers, and friendliest faces. Jamie Dallessandro of Comic Geek Speak, known to most simply as Jamie D, passed away due to complications from his longstanding battle with cancer. Jamie was a shining beacon of positivity for the community as a whole, and anyone who has listened to him, met him, or considered him to be a friend, will miss him dearly. I sure will.
This episode has my farewells to Jamie, as well as some extra audio that was recorded during Episode 150, and re-airing of a portion of Episode 137, which was recorded during Baltimore Comic Con with Shane, Brian “Pants” Christman, and Jamie.
Here’s to you, Shiznit Pimp. We will never forget the part your played in our lives, no matter how small or large it may have been. Uniting the world’s mightiest heroes, forevermore.
