Talkin’ Con: A Cup O’ Tea with An Englishman In San Diego s06e14 (2nd December 2018)


“…I’m back, baby!!”

After a bit of a break and a regroup, Leonard is back with one of our final Talkin’ Con shows of the year, joined by semi-regular partner-in-crime Mark Searby, looking back at the highlights of 2018, including the recent shows that have been mired with cancellations amidst some of the most illustrious lineups in recent convention schedules – have organisers got too much pressure to deliver as the con bubble reaches full nadir?

We also get into one of Mark’s favourite topics, Assassination Nation, and why it was at San Diego Comic-Con; we’ll also get into a little bit of a discussion on the recent debate, stirred up by the the comments made by Bill Maher in the wake of the passing of Stan Lee.
