Talkin’ Comic-Con: A Cup O’ Tea with An Englishman In San Diego
s04e33 (2nd April 2017)
WONDERCON 2017 SPECIAL
It’s here! This weekend has seen the Anaheim Convention Center play host to the massive Comic-Con International sister event, WonderCon! And what a show it has been!
Social media feeds have been riddled with reports of exciting show panels, niche interests features and plenty of top-notch cosplay. But what is it like to experience WonderCon, actually on the ground? The good news is, Alyssa Franks (Friends Of Comic Con Forum) will be beaming in to give us the lowdown on how the weekend has progressed so far, how some of the layout changes have affected the show and how WonderCon has returned to Anaheim with a bang!
It’s not all WonderCon, though: we’re also joined by geekscape.net’s Allie Hanley, who has been to see the new adaptation of GHOST IN THE SHELL and wants to share her take on it. Does this Western version of a manga classic deserve the hype, or does it fall short at the hurdle? We’ll discuss the film on this weeks episode.
That, and all the con culture headlines of the last seven days – if you’re not at WCA (or if you’re stuck in a line at WCA and have nothing better to do!), we 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!
YOU can watch and interact online, either by Twitter (tweeting with the hashtag #CupOTeaSDCC) or via the Hangout Event Q&A. Schedules permitting, Leonard will be joined by guests from the SDCC blogging community and some surprises!
