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.

THE SCI-FI PODCAST BONUS: The final trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens

Star Wars the Force Awakens TrailerHey, space cadets! It may be mid-week, but we’re bringing you some fun bonus sci-fi content. Our podcast normally features three hosts—Mattroid, Solo, and Station!—and we look at a specific science fiction theme or franchise and take the discussion where no show has gone before.

But in this special bonus episode we’re doing things a little differently. Here, Matroid and Solo discuss the latest (and final) trailer for upcoming fantasy film Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Always a dynamic duo, these two spend some time theorizing on the unknowns of the coming film, discuss a scenario in which both may end up crying in the theater, and they even struggle through an embarrassing situation as both fumble for several awkward minutes to find a popular, easily discoverable image on the internet. Unedited, in all it’s glory.

What you’ll hear:

-A bad recording due to Mattroid’s stupid phone!
-Discussion of the 3rd and final Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer and more!
-Details on how to be a part of another spectacular giveaway! Collectable Star Wars figurines, courtesy of show sponsor Yo Joe Depot, will be given away to a listener in the -first week of November – listen to the episode for details!
