Here’s the latest episode of The Obsessive Viewer Podcast. We decided to do an extended potpourri episode since we haven’t done a proper potpourri in what seems like a while. We recorded for 2 hours but I got it edited down to an hour and a half. Don’t worry, though, I’ve saved all the stuff for a later podcast so you’ll hear it eventually. And it’s good, too!

The Obsessive Viewer Podcast – Ep 30 – A Nerdy Conversation with IndyPopCon’s Chase Kahlo

Here’s the latest ep of The Obsessive Viewer Podcast! I’m really excited about this episode. This week we had an in-studio guest for the first time since our friend Greg helped us kick off the podcast in June! Our guest was Chase Kahlo, one of the guys behind Indy PopCon (the brand new pop culture convention coming to Indianapolis in May 2014).

We had so much fun recording with Chase and we’ll probably have him back as the convention nears. And when I say he’s our first “in-studio” guest, I mean he’s our first guest in the makeshift studio I converted my brother’s sunroom into and use to record in while he’s at work. But all the same, it’s a great episode and I hope you like it. Continue reading

Set in Earth’s future, young Ender Wiggin is trained and groomed to become the leader of Earth’s military attack against the alien “Buggers.” Ender is put through a series of tests that include several intense battles in zero gravity rooms. Ender’s final test is to display his tactical genius in a simulation against the Buggers, but is it really just a game? Writer’s note: Ender’s Game has been published in several different editions with more covers than I can count. The picture above is the version of the cover of the Ender’s Game book that I read.

This week was huge for The Obsessive Viewer Podcast. For starters, I edited this week’s episode in a new program that is going to be far less problematic than Garageband and, as I type this, I’m expecting some sweet new podcasting equipment to be delivered. But most exciting is the fact that we signed up for IndyPopCon. We’ll have more information down the road but, for now, we’re very excited.

This week is Space Movies Part 1! I hope you like it.
