Wendy is a marching band/TV dork and Scott loves 80’s music. Neither of them gets to talk much about their topics because there’s a technical problem early on and then we digressed so far off of their topics… and I didn’t get them back. So I will have them back on. I will say, it was fascinating to just listen to them. I hope you enjoy.

My Website is designed by Vilmos: who has his OWN podcast (road comic interviews… fascinating)

May 23, 2011

My guests were my traveling companions for the last couple weeks in Africa and the Middle East. Vargus Mason was the author of this tour and then got hurt and had to fly home before the end of the tour. So we're debriefing him a bit... April Macie and, not on this episode, our other traveling companion, Alycia Cooper kept on. Because, in the military, it's "no one left behind." In comedy, it's "sure. We’ll go on." and then, belatedly, "the show must go on." Alycia will have rebuttal time when I’m in NY or figure out to record via Skype!

 

Disclaimer… I express opinions about other people’s standup comedy and, as we know… all comedy is awesome and everyone’s journey is fantastic. But podcasts are people occassionally saying things they regret. When it was live there was all kinds of that... it seems cheating to edit it out. So, welcome to a less attractive part of my brain. I just love some things that were said OFF stage that I wish, and I get to wish, would be said ON stage.

 

Thanks for listening. Take care of each other out there, Jackie

It’s another Dork Expedition out and about. We meet dorks in their natural habitat! Branwyn Bigglestone works at Image Comics and her mom (Janet Winter) owns Games of Berkley. We wander.

 

I didn’t edit this AT ALL before going to the Middle East. My use of language in this episode is randomly inaccurate. Fantastic. I just let Pat sound fix this so it’s more meander-y than I might have let it be if I edited. I hope you enjoy it. I had a blast. At Image it’s chatty with a lot of us talking … and I have a hard time leaving and it digresses into lunch talk.

 

Then we go to the toy store and talk about toys. At length. At the end of the interview we find out that Janet designs costumes and then it’s back to CONS… more convention talk. Obviously... sitting down with Branwyn's mom, in the future, to get some dork history, is in order.
