Turkey Battle Cry!!! SRFC Part 2

This is the last of the multi-recording episodes of the Snake River Fandom Con episodes. Listen in as Stephan sits down with Aaron Cody Snyder, author EC Stilson, and Chelsea Wilkerson and Matt Asboe of the Snake River Defenders. Thank you to everyone that came and asked to record; and sorry that Stephan wasn’t able to sit down with everyone. Next year we promise to keep the mics on for everyone that wants to record. But until then, check out these awesome quick interviews.

Snake River Fandom Con Part 1

This episode is the first in a small series of recordings made at this year’s Snake River Fandom Con in Pocatello, Idaho. The event was a blast to attend, especially with the Salt Lake Super Friends. The first recording you will hear from UVU Film Professor and FX artist Crit Killen. The second recording is of the Event Coordinator Tanglwyst de Holloway and Inuyasha voice actor Richard Ian Cox.

Hamsters Eat Their Babies!!! with Larissa Paige Cosplay

It’s time to catch up with another one of the early guests of the Podcast. Larissa Paige returns to share some of the fantastic stories that she has experienced in the last 2 years since her last visit. Larissa has been one of the hardest working people I’ve come to know in my life. Almost every week, she is traveling to a new event, creating a new cosplay, or investing valuable time and work into furthering her endeavors. During the limited time available to her, she still supports many individuals around her. This episode may be jovial and light-hearted, but there are few that I hold in such admiration, as Larissa.

BONUS EPISODE: TP is Colorblind

Every now and then I think it’s fun to put up a bonus episode. And this time we’re going to do a full episode from our Patreon exclusive podcast “Do You Even Nerd Brah?” (DYENB). Stephan and Atom Bomb Body sit down to catch up on what has happened over the last month, share a few cosplay stories, find out what it’s like to model at Blizzard Entertainment, and of course another shart story. If you want to hear more like this, join the Cracked Brain Patreon Page.

Gotta Edit That Out!!! with SLSF

Well this particular episode will be sure to stick with quite a few people. The members of the cosplay group “Salt Lake Super Friends”, which includes Stephan, are the people on this particular episode. We thought it was quite fitting that we get together before attending Snake River Fandom Con in Pocatello, ID. This group is comprised of cosplayers that most local to the Salt Lake area would quickly recognize. People such as, Rachel Blatchford, Kelly Poynter, Izzi Keener, Heather Huddleston, Travis Hysell, and Andrew Peters. I’ve discovered that if you put this many eccentric cosplayers together, you get podcasting gold.

Children Stop!!! with AyyyTilley

I am so happy that this episode was finally done. Tilley has been an awesome person to get to know over the last few years. A random chance run-in has turned into a friendship that I cherish. Tilley is an incredibly talented entrepreneur and creative individual. Her talent has enabled her to work with some other professional creators. Website design, graphic design, video editing, and MUCH MORE; Tilley can do so many things. If you are planning to establish yourself on the internet in any way; I cannot recommend this talented individual more, to get you there.

Best Girl's Gon' Get Dead!!! by RachieMac

Salt Lake FanX is behind us, so we can take a rest right? Well some of us can anyway. But let’s take a moment to look back over the weekend to remember some of the things we enjoyed. It was a bummer not seeing nearly as many people in attendance, but sometimes you need to make the best of a negative situation.

RachieMac joins me again to recount the weekend experiences. Panels, walking around, cosplay, etc. It was a semi-decent weekend.

Damn It Mina!!! with Minasmols

We finally got around to getting Mina her own solo episode. And I am ecstatic that we did! Mina has been a fantastic cosplayer to get to know over the last year. The quality of her hand crafted costumes improves with each new venture. And on top of that, Mina NEVER back down from a new challenge. You will hear the passion behind her experiences in the local events. And I truly it hope that it inspires you all as well.
