Hello Friends!

Boy do I have a great episode for you guys! Last weekend I was fortunate enough to end a wonderful month long tour as tour manager for Fort Collin’s Alt-Country/Punk band Arliss Nancy, by coming home to Colorado and experiencing the wonderful DENVER COMIC CON!  What an experience. I got to meet so many wonderful and incredible people over the course of that weekend! It was a fantastic fun time that I will never forget.

Rather than ramble on about the weekend (which I do in the actual episode! You can skip all that rambling and get to the goods which start at the 14:12 minute mark!) and let the episode speak for itself.

I will add that I learned that next year to jump out of the gate running and interview as many people as I can on the opening day of the convention. I also learned to sit my butt down and do my research. It doesn’t matter if you are on a month long tour! RESEARCH! And I also learned that if I want to try to interview the larger Television and Film Stars, to smooze their PR handlers EARLY!
