This had to be the largest convention I have ever covered in my time as a podcaster and also one of the best run. Sakura-Con was held at the Washington State Trade and Convention Center, an enormous facility that hosts some of the biggest events that come to Seattle. To give you an idea, on my first day I wandered around four floor of panels, vendors, and open areas for fans to hang out and was amazed at everything I saw. But the thing is, when I got home and gave the booklet for the con a better look, I found out there was a fifth floor! So I had to go back (not like I didn’t want to) and explore the fifth floor with even more panels and an artist alley. (more…)

For the third year in a row, I attended Starfest in Denver, CO for a great weekend of sci-fi fun. As usual I was joined by Dave and Barry from ScreenGeeks.com, Billy Flynn from Geek Radio Daily, and John, Christopher, and Steve from Jonja.net. And as in years past, we all had a great time covering the events, panels, and talking with the celebrity guests. (more…)

For the third year in a row, Chris will be covering Starfest in Denver, CO on April 15th-17th along with the guys from Screengeeks Radio, Geek Radio Daily, and Jonja.net. As always, things are looking good already!

One thing we are changing this year is we are not going to do a panel. We would like to spend more time enjoying and covering the events at the con and have time for interviews.

Speaking of interviews, three guests have already been announced. Mark Shepard (Romo Lampkin from Battlestar Galactica, Crowley in Supernatural, Sterling in Leverage, and Badger in Firefly), David Prowse (the man under the Darth Vader mask), and Morena Baccarin ( Inara Serra in the Firefly, Adria in Stargate SG-1, and as Anna in V). It has yet to be determined who we will get to interview. There will be more guests announced in the near future.

If you can make it you should come and join us for the fun and geeky activities!
