My apologies for this episode being a couple of days late. Norton security didn’t play well with my windows ten upgrade, but we are back in business.
I have to say thank you for all the well-wishes from listeners on facebook and twitter, as I’ve embarked into the world of brick and mortar comic book sales again. I don’t have the widest local net of support, so when I hear from people all across the freaking world, telling me to keep kicking ass, well, just know that I appreciate it and it means a ton to me.
But anyway, thanks for listening.

A Pod of Him 007 [EXPLICIT CONTENT]
In this episode Trent gives the origin story of the new Death Ray Comics location and we revisit the OG apartofhim podcast episode #7. This episode was sponsored by Twitter user buddhaboy83.
Hey all it’s Trent find me on twitter apartofhim
I’m so sorry this week that there were no shows. Seriously, I’m very very sorry about that. Let me give ya’ll the background as to what happened.
So, after hosting show us your wits last week, and since I don’t have enough money for insurance, I am no longer driving a car, I was walking back from show us your wits, with my wheel barrel full of tables, sound and recording equipment, etc. I passed by my friend’s skate board shop.
Now, the skateboard shop, it’s called directive, has this little side space to it, that had a cafe in it for about 3 minutes. And other than that is has just been vacant. Kind of a, well, I guess we can store stuff in there for now spot for Directive. As I was walking by, it hit me, hell I wonder what they are planning for that.
When I got home I emailed my friend that owns the shop and asked him. He replied with you should rent it out.
Up until that point, I had no intention of reopening Death Ray Comics. But there it was.
So, as of Thursday, after hurrying to get shit together, I opened. in the new, much smaller venue.
Now, a lot of you might be wondering why I haven’t advertised more…. well…. it’s because I technically don’t have a business license for that location yet. So, once I get all the paperwork for that and everything, I’ll try and do a grand opening. See if I can get Ryan Ottley, my friend Jason, and other comic book creators from around the area to come and do a signing and stuff.
So that’s what’s up with no episodes this week. But, I am 100% committed to making sure that there are still new episodes everysingle day on the a part of him network. So, you can look forward to a full week of episodes. We just took a week break, like the daily show used to do…. you know…. before it stopped being a thing.
But anyway, I’m kicking the week off right with this sunday show of A pod of him.
And we are still revisiting the og apartofhim podcast, the show that started it all.
This is one of the more memorable early shows that we ever did. I used to be an admissions recruiter for Utah State University and I was recruiting all across nothern Nevada, so we recorded this episode while I was in a hotel room in wendover nevada. God, I know I always say this, but I seriously miss podcasting with Rick. Anyway, I hope you enjoy. This episode original was published march 28 2010 and was named perfect strangers on Craig’s list and in Wendover. Enjoy.
Well, there you have it. Another OG apartofhim and the end of a new a pod of him.
If anyone still wants to preorder the a pod of him tshirts, just got to apartofhim.com/him, and click at the top of the page for the tshirt link, we will be accepting pre orders for one more week then that’s it.
This episode was sponsored by twitter user buddhaboy83, he made a purchase from death ray comics via the links at apartofhim.com/support. And guess what, it’s through death ray comics and the purchases made via those links that I can keep this network treading water…. and when I say purchases, at least for the affiliate links, we only still have them thanks to twitter user mayorofbeertown graciously buying a teefury tshirt through our portal. Thanks man, you rock.
So go to apartofhim.com/support, buy something and let us know that you did so that we can give you on air props, just like buddhaboy83.
So apodofhim is going to be the place to track upfront and honest goings-on of the new location for death ray comics. If it werern’t for you listeners, I would have given up on selling comics a long time ago, so thank you for giving me reason to keep going… and I mean that, not just about comics too.
Alright, that’s it.
