Talkin’ Comic-Con: A Cup O’ Tea with An Englishman In San Diego
s05e42 (17th June 2018)
“…what a difference a day ma-aaakes… just a few little hou-rrrrrs…”
And boy, have those words never rung more true than the emotional rollercoaster that has been this week. In amongst all of the rest of the SDCC news that has started to filter out (as much of which, we’ll dive into throughout the show), there has been the highs of the announcement of the first properly confirmed SDCC panel from BBC America, the news of DOCTOR WHO taking its place in the schedule and being the presentation ball for new Timelord JODIE WHITTAKER, there has been the drama surrounding moderator Chris Hardwick, first confirmed and then sharply dismissed. While we won’t be going into too much detail and discussion around the background of said drama, we have to talk about the impact this will have on the tenor and tone of this years San Diego Comic-Con.
And we’ll be having that conversation with some of the very best commentators in the nerd-o-sphere – it’s our SDCC Bloggers Special! Alyssa is making her cross-country exodus so we’ll be joined by Friends Of Comic Con Forum Editor Kevin Walwyn in her stead. We’re also joined by Tony B. Kim (Crazy 4 Comic Con / Hero Within), Stephanie ‘Angel’ Wilson (The Geekiary), Aaron Nabus (The Hall H Show) and Chris Sully (The Nerd Fu) to talk about what they as dedicated spectators get out of an event such as SDCC, what they focus on during their con trips, how they prepare practically in terms of equipment and necessities, and what they’ve spotted on the possible attractions list that has caught their attention so far. If there’s anyone who could point you in the right direction at a con, it’s this bunch – should be a great conversation.
That, all of the weeks SDCC news and exclusives updates and it’s going to be an amazing show. Take part in YOUR show, and we hope you can join us live!
