Talkin’ Comic-Con: A Cup O’ Tea with An Englishman In San Diego
s04e41 (28th May 2017)
~ INTERVIEW: EMILY MOBERLY (Traveling Stories) / STEPHEN PARKER & STEVEN BRANDON (Game Of Thrones: The Musical) ~
We’ve got a cracking episode today, covering everything SDCC Off-Site – there are so many events and distractions taking place around San Diego Comic-Con, it’s almost enough that you never have to set foot inside the Convention Centre!
There’s going to be a massive WYNONNA EARP fan event, which also forms part of a prize package that Traveling Stories has put together for a lucky entrant. Emily Moberly from TS joins us to talk about the organisation’s fine work, raising children’s literacy in the community, as well as letting us spread the word about the SDCC sweepstake in its final stretch.

Then we’re joined by Stephen Parker and Steven Brandon, the manic minds behind GAME OF THRONES: THE MUSICAL, an incredible mashup between toe-tapping music and the works of George R.R. Martin! The show is coming to San Diego throughout the run of Comic-Con, and we’ll be talking about what it takes to put on such an extravaganza during the melee that is SDCC.

All of this, and Leonard and Alyssa will be going through all the other events happening in town during Comic-Con, including a Conan How-To Guide and what to expect from Conival and Syfy, as well as of the weeks SDCC news and updates… What a show!!
