Jake and I have been working to bring on a very special guest who has some cool behind-the-scenes knowledge on Netflix’s The Punisher. I am excited to announce it’s Ken Kristensen, a Netflix Punisher staff writer! He’s also written for shows like Happy! and various shorts, and has been a TV and film producer since the early 2000s. He’s also written various comics for Image and IDW, with his most recent indy comic being the sci-fi epic OBLIV18N.
Entering is easy. Just ask us a question in the comments, tweet us, reply on our pinned Facebook post, or just email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. 1 entry per person, no matter how many questions you ask us, however. Thanks for sticking with us and we’ll have the new episode out soon.
We are just high on goof balls and I’m sorry. But also not really. Also, I’m actually sorry about my audio quality. It will all be back on track next episode.
Introduction – Jake shows how he crushes his enemies and has them driven before him in a company Fitbit Challenge, and I continue to gamble and being a big deal actor man.
[41:52] News – We comment on an interview with one of the Punisher season 2 writers and talk about the military’s failed Punisher gun.
[1:05:21] Bullet Points – We read Punisher #1, a completely new series with the same writer and plotline as the last one. And then the roller coaster continues with Cosmic Ghost Rider #2. Also, Jake derails the show with Disney porn because of course he does.
[2:01:20] Flashbacks – I fucked up the Flashbacks prep, so we spitball future ideas. If you have some suggestions, send us a message on Twitter or Facebook.
[2:05:03] Discharge Papers – Jake goes deep into pinball games and The Foreigner. I become a Preacher apologist and shill my appearance on Waifu Wars.

Back in June, Jake and his family visited me as part of their summer vacation. During the visit, Jake and I set up a Q&A session on Facebook live. While you wait for us to set up the next episode (coming out this week!), I figured it would be nice to have this archived in the podcast feed. If you’d like to view the video, click here!
In the very beginning of this episode, I mention a way you can support the show by going to our Ko-Fi.com page. You beautiful people have already helped Jake and I reach our first dumb goal, so now we’re going to have to think up new stuff. Don’t worry, donations will automatically go to the next goal when we set it up.
Introduction – We realize we got competition in the Punisher podcast world! I bring up the banter war with my sister and my forays into standup comedy. Jake reveals his secret saltiness over all my guest spots and gives me some tough love. Jake then closes out with a goodbye to a local friend.
[36:15] News – We give an update on Mike Baron’s Kickstarter Cue Ball, and we learn about the upcoming Cosmic Ghost Rider comic and what’s next for Rosenberg’s Punisher.
The New Contest!– I found a Deadpool vs Punisher #1 comic signed by former show guest Fred Van Lente! And now I’d like to give it to one of our listeners. Fred Van Lente was one of Jake and I’s favorite people to have on the show, and for a lot of listeners, too. If you would like to get your hands on it, there’s two ways to enter!

[58:52] Mail Call – We answer some email about the nature of Frank Castle’s adventures and how they should or shouldn’t connect with reality. We also talk about Jessica Jones for a hot minute and then talk about forgotten side characters.
[1:20:53] Bullet Points – We cover Punisher #223, where Frank stops a nuke and kills an Iron Man with a knife. It’s still great, is what I’m saying.
[1:35:10] Flashbacks – We look back on Frank’s vacation gone wrong with Punisher: War Journal #20 written by Carl Potts!
[1:49:15] Discharge Papers – Jake connects with his daughter over Ready Player One and talks about a cool game called Gas Lands. If you like Mad Max don’t want to die of scurvy, this is the game for you. I get into some anime bullshit and also recommend you watch Ghostly Whispers on Netflix.
Happy Easter! There were some sound recording issues in this one, but they should be fixed by the next episode.
Introduction – We talk about haircuts and how I’m going to jail soon.
[13:22] News – New cast announcements for Punisher season 2, a Punisher comic character makes an appearance in the upcoming season of Luke Cage, and a new drug is on the street, and it’s sporting the skull.
[22:04] Mail Call – We answer some fan mail about Frank’s IQ and liking comics hated by the mainstream! We also try to think up some unorthodox merch and discuss if continuity helps or hurts the Punisher.
[49:36] Bullet Points – We cover Thanos #16, Punisher #222, and The Platoon #6! All of them are rad.
[1:58:02] Discharge Papers – We talk Black Panther, Jessica Jones, and Al’s Baby.
