Smash Fiction is a debate-style comedy podcast in which a rotating cast of nerds argue on behalf of their chosen fictional characters. Only one can win!

Under the spreading chestnut tree, V fought Dredd and Dredd fought V! The Fawkes-faced anarchist and the majestic-chinned lawman have arrived in 1984's Airstrip One, where they immediately come into conflict. Can Dredd live up to his reputation as the toughest judge of them all by upholding the principles of goodthink and sending V to the Ministry of Love? Or will V pursue his trademark orchestral vendetta and bring yet another tyrannical regime crashing down like so many dominoes? Also in this episode: Dan shows off his acting chops, Miles misquotes George Orwell (and says a few other stupid things), Colin is really into game shows, Liz pulls out a new impression (or maybe two), and Kit is the queen of childhood nostalgia.

There are consequences for ripping a giant hole in the fabric of reality, Lord Asriel. One of them is that Iorek Byrnison and his bears have to find a new home. Ice. The other is that four masters of the forces of cold from four other worlds have wandered into Svalbard, where the bears plan to use their powers for their own ends. Ice. But only one can accompany King Iorek through the door in space, and that one will be determined by good old-fashioned gladiatorial combat! Ice! For the first time ever, Smash Fiction blends together books, comics, movies, television, and video games (and possibly another medium, as well) into one massive frostbitten extravaganza! ICE! Special thanks to Kevin McCleod (www.incompetech.com) for use of the songs "Cyborg Ninja" and "Devastation and Revenge. (ice)

In this extra-romantic Valentine's Day match, longtime lovebirds Ron Weasley and Hermione Granger from the world of Harry Potter return to Hogwarts for some continuing education, but trouble awaits in the form of their new Defense Against the Dark Arts teacher: Shakespeare's Iago! Will Iago be able to do irreparable damage to this long-time fan favorite couple, or will true love conquer all? Can teen drama beat classic drama? Can our advocates quote Shakespeare without sounding like total tools? And... is Liz Logan reading poetry?!

It's time for the second episode of Extraordinary League, Smash Fiction's monthly actual-play RPG special! Our heroes -- Dante Sparda, Sterling Archer, Mordin Solus, and Stitch -- have escaped the initial capture that brought them together, and now must battle their way through hordes of Phyrexian abominations to escape the apocalyptic hellscape that is...London! Special appearances by Buffy Summers, the Terminator, Razputin Aquato, Zelda, and a certain doctor (no, probably not that one, but you never know)! Can the burgeoning bromance between Dante and Stitch survive a ferocious Ferris wheel fight? Where is Mordin's circulatory system located, anyway? Will Archer finally find a bar? And just as a general question, since we all just kind of woke up into this MTG-infested nightmare with no memories of how we got here...what the hell is going on?
