Episode 92: Motor City Comic Con Recap with Motor City Geek and Mess Bucket Comics

0

Episode 92, our second broadcast from the new studio, is live and ready to make you laugh at our exhaustion and ridiculousness.  We were joined by our friends from Motor City Geek and Mess Bucket Comics to talk about our collective experiences at Motor City Comic Con this past weekend and more.

So listen in as we kick off with our 1992 flavored intro and get rolling…

From AOL getting bought to the FTC stepping in on Radio Shack’s proposal to sell their customer data during their bankruptcy proceedings, there were quite a few events and articles that caught our eyes this past week.  We also talking about our upcoming event tomorrow (Thursday) night at Blackfinn, some minor details about the weekend’s activities and more.

If you’re not familiar with Motor City Geek, you should be.  They’re deeply engaged in trying to bring to the surface just about any facet of being a geek you can think of.  From comics to cosplay, from LAN parties to LARPing, they’ve got something about for you.  Check them out at http://motorcitygeek.com/

20150519_173206Segment three dove in with Dom from Mess Bucket Comics, who’s been a guest on our show before and we always have a great time with…including at some of those aforementioned after parties.

Dom’s got a couple of graphic novels out currently, with the third on the way, and he’s also involved in an annual charity hockey event that does some really cool stuff for a local cause in Detroit.  Check him out at http://messbucketcomics.com/index2.html

Our fourth segment included a live, on-air taste test of…shudder…vegan jerky (we don’t understand how that works either), as well as doubling back on some earlier topics and just wrapping things up for the night.
