Needless Things Podcast Episode 17 – Adam WarRock: Racing to the High Five!

I couldn’t be more excited and quite frankly impressed with myself as far as how this year is shaping up so far. I am pretty awesome.
Just let me have this moment.
I have three podcast episodes in the can already and two more on the schedule. Three of these episodes are interviews that to me are Big Deals – dany only, today’s with Adam WarRock, and another one that you’re just going to have to wait a week or so to find out about. I’m almost wishing I had more monthly space on Podbean, but that’s not going to happen because that takes even more money.
In addition to the podcasting excitement, I am currently starting to plan my panels for Dragon Con. I’ve submitted my ideas to the Great and Powerful Gary and Joe and am waiting to hear back on what’s a go. I am very excited about the stuff I suggested. Over the course of discussing said panels, I found out that my 2013 panels were among the best rated of the American Sci-Fi Classics Track. That is one of the best non-family accomplishments of my life. If you’d like to listen, here they are:
Also, I will be at Dragon Con as an Attending Professional. I am not entirely sure what this means, but I had to fill out an application and be approved for it. It’s not a Guest, but I will be listed in the program and in a pool for panels. This could possibly mean less drinking, so I’m not sure how much of an accomplishment it really is.
Okay – let’s talk about today’s podcast.
I give my whole Adam WarRock story in the show, so I’m not going to repeat it here. The deal is that his Doctor Who Mixtape dropped on January 7th and once I listened to it I was dying to talk to this guy. I didn’t know what format it would be – ideally we’d do an hour long Needless Things and record a ten minute drop-in about The Doctor Mixtape for Earth Station Who. But I’d take whatever I could get. I never know how folks are going to respond to things, so I was ready for anything from no response to a full hour and the drop-in.
Because Adam WarRock is a righteous dude we got the full hour and the drop-in.
Me and Mr. Beau Brown had a great conversation with the guy. We discussed his process, his nerd influences, and comic books.
Listen now! Adam WarRock gives you his comic book recommendations! How can you go wrong?

  1. Terrific Interview, I tried to listen to him a year ago or so because Ive heard a lot about him. Just didn't care for him too much but that Thrawn song is sweeeeeet! If you haven't heard of Kirby Krackle, they are a fun pop nerd band, listen to Another Castle and Up, Up, Down, Down and you might be hooked like I was.

    1. Yeah, me and Beau had a great time doing this one. I am familiar with Kirby Krackle - they are nerdtastic.
