Thanks to everyone that came out to the LIVE podcast this year at Comicpalooza. The great Ming Chen joined us to discuss Predator. One thing we learned…we need more time if we have an audience. So many good suggestions for recasting, double features and more. Thanks to Michael Taylor and his AV crew for helping us have the best setup for any podcast at the event! We will learn and recalibrate for an even better live podcast next year. 

Oh and if you have an event where you’d like us to podcast live, feel free to contact us!

Dan Farr and Bryan Brandenburg,

What an event you put on! Having been lucky enough to work several comic-con/pop-culture events in the past, I really want to thank you for including me into the fold so quickly and thoroughly.  Everyone I had contact with was exceptional. The way you treat special guests is top notch.  I can tell that every person there is committed to the fans and attendees.

I do have some people in particular I wanted to point out:

Mary Jones was the first to greet me and embrace me into the fold. She, as well as her fellow photographer Alexis Morrill, couldn’t have been sweeter, showing me around and saying hello whenever they saw me. Josh in the media command center was just as gracious. He was working non-stop every time I saw him.

Ryan Call and Blake Casselman treated me like I was one of the celebrity guests. They always had an open channel of communication. They responded almost instantly to any inquiry, be it by email or in person.  They programmed a heck of a show! I appreciate them trusting me with both panels I moderated.

Chris Provost was a great MC. While he was far too busy to be as nice as he was, that didn’t stop him from being a gracious host. His helpful advice worked like a charm.

Finally, Dan and Bryan. It is obvious you love doing these events and are more involved than any owners I’ve met. Your leadership and enthusiasm echoes throughout the organization. I can see why Salt Lake ComicCon events are so wildly successful.  

Thank you for including me. I hope to be able to participate as often as you’ll let me!

Craig Price

SATURDAY MARCH 18, 2017 – 11:00 AM TO 12:00 PM – 151G
The Doctor is Out: Who is 13?

With Peter Capaldi leaving the TARDIS behind, the question becomes – who should be the next doctor? Join our panel for a discussion of who they think should wield the sonic screwdriver next.


I look forward to seeing everyone there and if you see me, say hello!


We need heroes again, now more than ever. With Craig, and hopefully special guests, we want to explore what it means to be a hero. We want to watch, examine, and love these great pieces of hero cinema – STAR WARS, RAIDERS, comic book movies, and these great matinee films of the past, present, and future – and take from them the lessons that we can use to navigate this world. We love our heroes not just for their strength and courage, but for their foibles and mistakes, because that’s when we truly understand that these heroes are just like us. These movies aren’t just casual escapism; they are important. We carry them with us everywhere we go. To that end, Matinee Heroes will explore hero cinema and use these movies to make a better world.

– Alan & Craig
