Jimmy Pardo (@jimmypardo)  is a comic, writer and podcast host (Never Not Funny) and talks about the band… CHICAGO for, easily, 30 minutes this episode.  Other bands are mentioned and some comedy is discussed. He’s great. Enjoy.

He talks about writing the book that he then got published that I believe everyone will enjoy.The book is "Shattering Conventions: Commerce, Cosplay, and Conflict on the Expo Floor" by Bob Calhoun. It's available in eBook and paperback from and other fine book sellers. For more on the book go to

We all know I have a new hour comedy video out at right? Cuz I do. $5 download. It’s called “This Will Make An Excellent Horcrux” because comedy is all about soul ;) … Own it today and forever. OR get a hard copy (or the CD) on the Merch page on my website. 

November and December I ask that you do NOT DONATE to TDF but, instead, find your local foodbank! It’s Thanksgiving guys… let’s be thankful and giving, shall we? Google: “your town name” and the words, “food bank” and give them food or money. If you give them money they just buy what’s most needed. All good either way. Take care out there… heh.
