Ben and Mike went to Salt Lake Comic Con and then flew straight to meet the rest of the gang to tour the next place that could possibly hold Gulf Coast Comic Con! Though plans were made to record a podcast ‘on location,’ the con crud reared its ugly head and you’ll have to wait until next week to get all the details! We promise, it will be worth the wait!
On our eighth episode, we welcome Jason back to the podcast, we hit the road to check out another convention center for Gulf Coast Comic Con, we discuss Mike and I heading to SLCC this weekend, we discuss a little more of our planning process, some discussion is had about large cons and what we call an Expo and what we call a Convention, we talk about Ron Weasley making some Dad sad and how we approach such issues at Pensacon, Ben and Mike give their secrets to finding a good convention, Will wants to eat your food at Pensacon but Ben does not, some Marvel conversation comes in to play and it turns out we just can’t get enough of it, seriously, Marvel is excellent at casting, and we have a guest spotlight who was the voice of many a childhood!

P.S. Rupert Grint is NOT coming to Pensacon 2016. Don’t be fooled by the title!
On this episode, we discuss who didn’t make it to Dragon*Con with us and the body part we left behind, we discuss a visit to the first spot in the running for Gulf Coast Comic Con, we poke a little fun at Jason, we make our excuses on why we didn’t record a podcast at Dragon*Con, we discuss a few of the things we experienced at Dragon*Con and how we do some of that stuff at Pensacon, and we have a guest spotlight for a guy that’s been a mayor, a commander of a future military force, and the kind of person that would bring chalk to a wedding.

Howdy, Folks! Today we were supposed to start putting together an epic Dragon*Con podcast for you! Unfortunately, due to hospitalizations and other voodoo, we will not be able to do that. However, tune in next week to find out what happened to us at Dragon*Con and why you’ll want to be paying special attention to the GC3 site in the next few weeks.
Talk to you soon!
The Pensacon Gang
On our sixth episode, we talk about our gang, the gang talks about Dragon*Con, we include some good tips on what to do (and not do) at Dragon*Con (and Pensacon, for that matter), some of the things we’ll be doing and places we are going there, we get the idea that Kat is a fan of John Barrowman, we discuss the 15 second teaser put out of “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” and what it means to us as fans of Star Wars, we discuss the difference in how we are preparing for the movie, we discuss the highs and lows (mostly lows) of the prequels, everyone has an opinion on where they went wrong, we discuss directors going bad (and some not) over time, some movie distribution stuff, and our guest spotlight who will have the inside scoop of “The Force Awakens” as well as one of our favorite HBO series!
