THE SCI-FI PODCAST EP 35: The Gang Goes to SLC Comic-Con FanX 17

Welcome to The SciFi Podcasta wretched hive of scum and villainy a bi-weekly podcast focused on in-depth discussion of all things Science Fiction. The SciFi Podcast features four hosts—Mattroid, Brain, Solo, and Station!—and frequent guests. Each episode we look at a science fiction theme or franchise and take the discussion where no show has gone before.

In lieu of a standard TSFP episode, Mattroid, Solo, Brain, and Spacewolf attend Salt Lake City’s Comic-Con FanX 2017. Station, having recently given birth, was unable to join in the fun and was sorely missed. Various discussions, interviews, and insights into the bizarre world of pop-culture conventions are discussed by the hosts during this episode, and Solo shows off his goofy side more than once, which alone is worth the price of admission. Have you ever been to a Comic-Con or similar kind of event? Let us know all about it! 

The Sci-Fi Podcast will return to form soon with episode 35.

Finally, an in-depth discussion revolving around the baddest characters in all of science fiction. Few things make a movie excel or plummet like a villain–are they scary? monstrous? evil? hysterical? pathetic? Some of each, and each host takes the time to bring to you their three favorite and three least favorite villains, and then some. Make sure you take to the boards or Facebook page after you listen so you can contribute to the discussion! Is the Predator a villain or not?! Let us know! 

(stick around until the end for a behind the scenes discussion about snacks!)
