ESO Podcast - Episode 222

This week, the ESO crew takes a look at the silly, crazy, merry, and looney cartoons of the 1930’s and 40’s. Mike, Mike, the award-winning author Bobby Nash, and Mark Heffernan discuss the rise of the many animation studios releasing classic shorts that continue to make us smile today. We also catch author Mark Beaulieu between alternate realities and hold him in The Geek Seat. Plus, Anthony Taylor tells us all we need to know about Monsterama and Mike and Bobby report on the premiere of the Starship Farragut episode, “Conspiracy of Innocence.” All this, as well as the usual Rants, Raves, Khan Report, and Shout Outs!

This week's Shout Out goes out three other recent podcasts that I'm honored to have made a guest appearance.

The "Super Vehicle Showdown" panel at Dragon Con last year. One of my all-time faves! Thanks to fellow panelists Kevin Eldridge, Van Allen Plexico, Gary Mitchel, and Joe Crowe, along with everyone who attended that morning in the American Sci-Fi Classics Track!

Bill Kielhorn and I report on all the fun we had in Charlotte with The Phantom Troublemaker!

Gary Mitchell, Matt Cowger, and myself talk about the long-awaited news of the DVD/Blu-Ray release of the 1960's Batman series. 

Next week, the ESO crew reviews the latest installment of PoA franchise, Dawn of the Planet of the Apes. Plus, more Rants, Raves, Geek Seat victims, Khan Reports, and Shout Outs!
