Talkin’ Comic-Con: A Cup O’ Tea with An Englishman In San Diego
s04e48 (16th July 2017)
~ DISNEY D23 EXPO LIVE REPORT / SDCC, JUST DAYS AWAY ~
“Heigh-ho! Heigh-ho! Heigh-ho, heigh-ho, heigh-ho…”
It’s finally arrived. After months and months of planning, after dozens of shows of build-up and anticipation, after hours of pouring over schedules and hotel lists and lottery forms and spinning blue circles of doom… it’s finally here. SAN DIEGO COMIC-CON has arrived – thank goodness!
In just a couple of days, tens of thousands of eager pop culture fans will pour into Downtown San Diego to fully get their geek on – but that doesn’t mean our job on the Hangout is fully over, not yet. We still have the last minute announcements of the last seven days to cover and put our final ducks in a row. And do this while attending another major California event, as well.
Leonard will be reporting live from this years Disney D23 Expo, hopefully from inside the Anaheim Convention Center exhibition floor, to give to a sense of the excitement generated at this unique event. He’ll also report on the panels he’s seen at the show and talk about what that might mean for the presentations at SDCC the following weekend.
Leonard as roving reporter? This also means that Mark Searby will be technically hosting the hangout from London and the man steering the ship – so any last minute SDCC questions you have, we’re sure that Mark will have the answers to, if – heaven forbid – the signal cuts out on Leonard. This could be very interesting indeed…!
This is our last show of this season, before our Post-Con Wrap-Up episode – let’s see if we can go out with a bang!
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!
