Denver Comic Con – Spotlight on Alan Tudyk

Alan Tudyk took the stage to loud and enthusiastic applause. He thanked the audience, pointed out that he was the first main event guest of the con, and admitted “I’m overwhelmed.” Moderator Clare Kramer (Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Bring It On) invited Tudyk to sit in front of, rather than behind, the table that had been set up for them, making things more friendly and informal.

Tudyk began with a quick recap of his project Con Man and its monumentally successful Indiegogo campaign (735 percent of goal met!). He told us that, pre-Firefly, he was acquainted with “just the basics” of the sci-fi genre, e.g., the Star Wars films, Star Trek: The New Generation. But post-Firefly, he’s learned so much more about fandom, how unique it is, and how encouraging and supportive we are of each other. What he wants to do with Con Man, besides entertain, is to share and celebrate fandom.

Upcoming Topics in July, August and September 2015

We had a blast at Phoenix Comicon this year. Hopefully you joined us in the audience at one of our live podcast recordings or perhaps one of our other events. Now that we’ve recovered we’ll be getting back to our normal release schedule for the Educating [Geeks] and E[G] Drinking Game podcasts and associated Geek [Supplies]. First up will be the three topics we covered at Phoenix Comic Con and we’ll round out the quarter with a visit to one of the most beloved fandoms in all of fandom history. So plan to get yourself up-to-date with these topics and join in the conversation!

Denver Comic Con – Spotlight on Jewel Staite

Instead of a (high-level) convention staff person moderating media star events, Denver Comic Con featured guests interviewing guests. For Jewel Staite, we had Star Trek: Voyager’s Garrett Wang manage the proceedings.
