Secret Convergence on Infinite Podcasts

Posted on Sunday, October 18, 2015 by Al in Podcast, Shameless Self-Promotion


As you may have seen on Twitter, House to Astonish is going to be taking part in a huge, complex crossover with eight other excellent comics and pop culture podcasts, under the banner of Secret Convergence on Infinite Podcasts.

The crews of the Fan Bros Show, Into It with Elle Collins, SILENCE!, Less Than Live with Kate or Die, Journey Into Misery, Wait, What?, us, War Rocket Ajax and Rachel & Miles X-Plain the X-Men are set to be swept away to Battlepod by the Beyonder, to help him understand comics and comic culture in a series of round-table discussions.

House to Astonish’s episode is part 7 of the crossover, and I’m joined on that episode by Wait, What?’s Jeff Lester, Into It’s Elle Collins, and Journey Into Misery’s Helena Hart to discuss our comic book guilty pleasures. You can also find me on part 3 (SILENCE!) and part 4 (Less Than Live), and Paul on part 6 (Wait, What?) and part 9 (Rachel & Miles X-Plain the X-Men).

It all kicks off on 29 October on the Fan Bros Show, where hosts DJ BenHaMeen and Chico Leo will be discussing the question of “Who would win in a fight?”, alongside Wait, What?’s Graeme McMillan, War Rocket Ajax’s Chris Sims and X-Plain the X-Men’s Rachel Edidin, and runs through until 29 November.

It’s been in the works since April (and has been something of a logistical nightmare), but it’s going to be really enjoyable if the episodes I’ve been privy to so far are anything to go by, and we’ve got some brilliant announcements to come, like the identity of our special guest Beyonder voice (though it’s not hard to find out now, if you pay close attention), and the specially commissioned art which James Stokoe has done for us – and hey, check out our launch image above, produced just for the occasion by Brandon Graham. Mega, eh?

You can find more details on the podcast’s Tumblr over here, or follow along on Twitter. We’ll keep you updated here too as the various episodes go live. We’re all incredibly proud of this, and we hope you enjoy it.

    I’m going to need some ‘Road to *insert crossover name here*’-esque graph to sort out the podcasts I want. Actually, scratch that. I’ll just Trade-wait before deciding if it’s worth getting.

  2. Brendan says:

    That’s service!

  3. LiamKav says:

    Currently I only listen to two of those podcasts, and those are the only two that don’t seem to be crossing over. Although I guess that’s good, as at the moment my podcast list has probably more Chris Sims in it than is actually healthy. This is a good excuse to try some new stuff.

  4. LiamKav says:

    Actually, I forgot I also listen to Rachel and Miles (although I am only on episode 25 and so am well, well, WELL behind). I’m quite keen to see Paul flex his X-muscles there.

    Also, Al is going to be doing his first solo hosting show! I will resist making a “hope you survive the experience” comment, whilst simultaneously making one.

  5. Dylan says:

    I hate when my monthly podcast gets swept up in a crossover I have no interest in listening to. 😉

  6. errant says:

    House to Astonish is always better sans guests.

  7. LiamKav says:

    They’ve had guests, like, twice. And one of those times was Paul and Al’s wives. And they were very entertaining. I like the standard HTA format, but mixing things up occasionally is always fun.

  8. LiamKav says:

    (If only we could have gotten Paul on The Attitude Era podcast…)

  9. odessasteps says:

    I enjoyed when the wives to astonish were on.

    Some of the other times, not as much.

    Even an episode that doesnt hit on all cylinders for someone is only 1 show. Another will be along soon enough.

    Is the crossover going to get a dedicated RSS feed? That would be easier than hopping from site to site collecting individual issu…, er, podcasts.
