This Weekend & Beyond


This weekend, I'll be a guest along with my fellow ESO co-hosts, Bobby Nash and Mike Faber, at Con Nooga in Chattanooga, TN. I have not been to this show since 2008. I had a fun time then and I've heard it has gotten bigger and better over the years! I will be appearing on a few panels and set up in the exhibitor hall. I hope to see you there! Stop by and say, "Howdy!"

Also, this week I was notified I have been confirmed as a guest at the following upcoming shows:



ESO Podcast - Episode 152


The ESO crew takes a look at one of tv’s tried and true tropes, the spinoff. Mike, Mike, and Bobby are joined by Joe Crowe (Dragon*Con American Sci-Fi Classics Track), Dan Carroll (Momocon), and Greg Plunket to review the best and worst of the bunch, even including spinoffs of spinoffs! We are also joined by writer Jim Beard, who may be familiar with monsters, but can he survive The Geek Seat? All this, along with the usual Rants, Raves Khan Report and Shout Outs!

Geronimo! Mike, Mike, and Phantom Troublemaker review the last of the regeneration stories, and it looks like we saved the best for last! We are joined by Terry Lightfoot (www.DirtyWHOers.com), who was kind enough to bring the fish fingers and custard and tell us tales of Gallifrey 2013.

ESO Podcast - Episode 151


Would you believe the iconic entertainer Mel Brooks visits the station and shares some laughs with the crew? No? How about his son, writer Max Brooks? No? How about Mike, Mike, and Bobby reviewing the great career of Mel Brooks with Sammi Stephans (Your Site of Sites), Patrick Freeman (Sci-Fi Janitors), Alex Autrey (7th Row Center), and Dr. Scott Viguie (Dr. Geek’s Laboratory). And loving it! Writer James Palmer feels some “high anxiety” as we strap him to The Geek Seat, and chairman Todd Patton tells us how it feels to be one of “the producers” of Con Nooga. Plus the usual Rants, Raves, and Shout Outs!

ESW Podcast - Episode 28


“I don’t want to go!” are the last words of the Tenth Doctor and we were not sure we wanted to go review this two-part finale either.

We also take a look at the first BBC America 50th anniversary special, Doctor Who Revisited, and the classic story, The Aztecs.
