Talkin’ Comic-Con: A Cup O’ Tea with An Englishman In San Diego
s04e24 (29th January 2017)
~~ TURBULENT TIMES ~~
We do try our best to keep our political leanings or opinions out of the show, as we find that once you are in the thick of a busy convention, those opinions do go mostly by the wayside as people dive into their fandoms with gusto. However, with recent events in the US political landscape, it can’t be avoided that new policies could make an significant impact on the shows we love.
Could artists, writers and creatives, especially those based outside of the US, make the decision not to make the journey as a protest to the current administration? More alarmingly, could some of those creatives be actively denied entry into the country, because of their home country? Alyssa and Leonard will be looking into the issues raised, as well as talking about the recent announcements from Comic-Con International. Hope you can join us!
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!
