RevCast: from RevolutionSF.com
Commentary, criticism and comedy about movies, TV and all corners of geeky genres and culture. A sci-fi convention in your pocket.

Deanna Toxopeus, and Gary Mitchell welcome guest podcaster Stephen Granade, part of the What the Cast Team and someone who is at least partly responsible for DragonConTV.  Together they discuss how the con has changed with the arrival of the digital age.  The wax poetic about mimeographed fanfic, the bootleg table and other relics of the good old days.  They also talk about how cons have changed, in some cases for the better, in an attempt to remain relevant and attract a new audience.  They also discuss the Nerd News and the Week in Nerdliness.

Like the bunch of over stimulated Gen Xers that they are, Deanna Toxopeus, Gary Mitchell and Scott Duschene take a look at one of the best comedy movies of all time, Airplane!  They run all the lines, sometimes several times.  Just like last Saturday's D&D game!  Plus they end up talking about Brian Blessed, Patrick Swayze and William Shatner.  What more do you want in a podcast?  Beyond the Week in Nerd News and Nerdiliest Thing This Week.

Podcast Queen Deanna Toxopeus, looks with fellow podcaster Scott Duschene take a look at teh new genre shows that the networks have to offer this Fall TV season.  What they find are slim pickings, full of remakes and strange hybrids.  And what the heck is that Even all about?  Can they stay upbeat about the offerings or will they slide into syncism?  Only time will tell!  Or you listening to the podcast.  They manage to pump it up with week in Nerdliness and the Nerd News.

Blessings be upon American Thanksgiving and the bounty of goodness in the movie theatre.  OK, not a huge, cornocopia of movies, but a comfortable harvest basket of yummy viewing.  Hollywood knows you will be sending some, if not all, of your family to the movie theater in the next month.  So do Deanna Toxopeus, Gary Mitchell and Scott Duschene.  And they take an entire podcast (OK, just the roundtable part) to discuss the November 2010 movie offerings.  They also spend some time talking about the Week in Nerdliness and the Nerd News.
