Mikey and Jonah are in a pickle. They need to talk about Comic Cons but they don't have enough experience to speak with great condemning authority. What to do?

Call in Chris Piers! Chris is an indie comic artist, comic con regular, and a member of DC Conspiracy.

Chris worked on the Trickster Anthology

And he co-hosts the Television Zombies podcast.

Mikey did something crazy: he made a album inspired by the Neil Gaiman novel American Gods. And guess what? It's not the usual Comedy Rock Star humor music that he's known for. Why did he do it?

It comes down to this: Danny Birt is one of the smartest, sharpest, and musical filkers in existence in our dimension. In a world of musical quasi-professionalism, Danny is a fantastic ambassador for Filk.

Mikey's first RavenCon was Jonah's third. Concerts of all sorts, home brew beer, and fan vs signing tables. But the big question: Does RavenCon have the nicest attendees of all?

Alethea is an author, yes she is, of some pretty cool fairy tail inspired work. But she is also a traveling variety show. If you have ever run into her at a convention you know she is full of energy and authentically passionate about you. Yes, you.

This is one of my favorite interviews so far. She's smart, insightful, and comes across fully in control.

Eli August plays dark Americana music for steampunks. He gigs quite a bit both solo and with his band The Abandoned Buildings. If you've been to a steampunk event chances are he's been there.

Mr. Jeff Mach runs Jeff Mach Events, an organization that produces crazy festivals like The Steampunk World's Fair, The Geek Creation Show, The Goblin Market Presents, The Geeky Kink Event, and The Wicked Fair.

What's the difference between a festival and a convention? How important is music to a festival? How does one do this stuff?

Songs are from the steampunk rock opera/musical Absinthe Heroes featuring the vocals of Psyche Corporation:

Time to Wind the Moon

With a Crash
