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!
