"Upside Fans"

They're your Glass Half Full type of fanboys who aim to always look on the Upside! Even when they dabble in the Dark Side, they pride themselves on staying in the light. But mostly...they just talk about geeky stuff they love. Movies, Comics, Games, TV and a bunch of stuff that's not Football, its all here! They also host a segment called "The Fandom Menace," where they take a not so loved property (mostly movies) and find the good in them. As you can imagine...some weeks are harder than others. It's a weekly "geekly" conversation galore that they hope you get a kick out of!

The Upside Fans celebrate week 4 of Spooktember by opening up their Podcast Theater to talk one of 2017's best.

Diving deep into the sunken place that is the triumphant feature film debut of Jordan Peele, Rob and Will talk what exactly makes Get Out not only a great horror film, but also wonderfully crafted social commentary...or does one of the fans challenge that? Not really, but he does have some thoughts.

Cue up your Blue-Rays or Streaming Service (or just listen as an extra long episode) and enjoy!
