Welcome to the first of four special episodes recorded in the Podcast Lab during the 6th annual Los Angeles Podcast Festival at the Millennium Biltmore Hotel in Downtown Los Angeles, CA, October 6-8, 2017.  Rumors abounded this year that it might be the final LA Podcast Festival, but we’re keeping our fingers crossed for another one next year, so we can again bring you our annual compilation episodes from the event.  The festival is an amazing, creative weekend for podcasters and fans, alike.  Our continued thanks to Graham Elwood, Chris Mancini and Dave Anthony for creating and producing this annual highlight.

We spent the weekend recording  in the Podcast Lab with our fellow podcasters and special guests.  We asked new friends to tell us about one film that influenced them to be who they are, and had old friends sit down to catch-up with us.  In this episode, you’ll hear from:

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:
