On a somewhat more serious episode of Galaktacus, we tackle a topic that strikes at the purple heart of this podcast—fandom.

Vehement overreactions are all too commonplace. So how do we fix this and more importantly, can we fix this? Well, we give it our best try and hope to pass on some positivity to what should be a big party! Give a listen to us here!
Testify Galaktacus! Testify...about the preeminent Vertigo comic turned AMC series—Preacher! How does a book that pushed the envelope in terms humor and violence hold up two decades later?
