Los Angeles Comic Con, LA’s largest event for comics, gaming, sci-fi and pop culture, is launching a new weekly podcast for nerds called “Comic Con Meta*Pod,” in partnership with iHeartRadio.

The show is hosted by Hector Navarro (podcast host for Nerdist Book Club! SpongeBob BingePants and Heroes Reforged!) and art/culture critic Joelle Monique (writer for Teen VoguePlayboy, and Vulture).

The show kicked off Thursday with a May the 4th Star Wars special featuring Mandalorian actor Giancarlo Esposito, Clone Wars and _Bad Batch _composer Kevin Kiner, and an epic trivia battle between The Droid Builders and The Mandalorian Mercs.

Each show will consist of a rundown of the latest nerd news headlines, where Joelle and Hector recap the top pop culture stories of the week. This will be followed by guest interviews featuring actors, showrunners, comic book creators, content creators, influencers, and other entertainment industry professionals. Lastly, each episode will end with a lively rotating segment, including but not limited to: trivia battles, nerd debates, expert fandom deep dives, music spotlights with celebs and themed bands, and comic book reading recommendations.
