Sidekicks!  Those plucky kids, talking animals, hapless girlfirends and others who exist solely to provide exposition and be rescued.  And we here at the Roundtable decided that it is high time we looked at their contribution to our genre.  Deanna Toxopeus and Gary Mitchel are joined by Jessa Phillips to look at the great, and not so great, sidekicks that are out there.  There is also nerd news and the week in nerdliness.

Our theme music this episode is "Cultists On Board" by Darkest of the Hillside Thickets, courtesy of Divine Industries.

A reminder about our feedback address. . Tell us what you think about the Roundtable!  Is Gary Deanna's sidekick?
