Episode 42: Comic Con Palm Springs

Welcome to our special episode from the inaugural Comic Con Palm Springs, which took place at the Palm Springs Convention Center in Palm Springs, CA, August 26-28, 2016.  We had a great time at the Con and especially enjoyed appearing on two podcasting panels put together by our pal Phil Vecchio of the Radio Brendoman and Mandarian Orange podcasts.  Although we spent most of our time watching all the terrific panels Phil organized for the weekend, we were able to spend a couple of hours on the Con floor, where we recorded quick segments with a variety of con-goers, cosplayers, artists, and vendors.

We asked each guest to tell us about one film that influenced them to be who they are.  In this episode, you’ll hear from:
