Talkin’ Comic-Con: A Cup O’ Tea with An Englishman In San Diego
s04e15 (13th November 2016)
~~ MEASURES C AND D SHUT DOWN / ‘SAN DIEGO CONQUEST’ KICKSTARTER / HERO WITHIN ~~
While we may have reached – and just about survived – the summer con season, and we enter the long dark nights of winter, we still have plenty to talk about on our weekly recap of the weeks convention news, as well as being joined by very special guests.
This week, Leonard and Alyssa will be examining the impact and future of the proposals put forward for a non-contiguous convention space expansion in San Diego, as both Measures C and D were dismissed at the beginning of the week. We’ll look into what this means for the future of the city.
We’re also joined by three guests who have entered the tough and challenging market for the nerd dollar; Mario Candelaria and Rob Alan with their new comics project – THE SAN DIEGO CONQUEST – that is very much relevant to the SDCC attendee, and also, Tony B. Kim, who is aiming to enrich and bedazzle the fashion sense of your sartorially aware geek with his prestige clothing line, HERO WITHIN. We’re excited to speak to these bold entrepreneurs.
TALKIN’ COMIC-CON: A CUP O’ TEA WITH AN ENGLISHMAN IN SAN DIEGO is the weekly San Diego Comic-Con and con culture live podcast, broadcasting every Sunday (6pm GMT / 10am PT / 1pm ET) and hosted by Leonard Sultana, joined by Alyssa Franks.
Each week, the best bloggers on t’web talk about San Diego Comic-Con, about con & pop culture and, for an hour or so, we invite guests to talk to us and get nerdy and geeky about everything that orbits the Best Pop Culture Convention On The Planet!
