Our podcast has come a long way. A year ago we bought the equipment and then an emergency situation at work called Mrs. Nola Nerd Couple to change her duties. She didn’t have time for the podcast because she had to focus on her day job. Her hard work paid off in that she was named Teacher of the Year!
I carried on doing the music podcast, but it’s hard to do a solo podcast. However, once she settled into the process, we were able to pick up doing the podcast regularly. We are still teaching ourselves the process of producing a podcast. However, it is one of my favorite hours of the week. We would have these conversations anyway, but it’s great to have an hour set aside to have a face to face conversation, even if the point is to have other people listen in.
At first, we really weren’t sure if people were listening. Then one day, Comicpalloza asked us if we applied to their podcast program. We honestly weren’t sure if we were ready, but we took this as the encouragement we needed.
We were ecstatic to find out this week that we were actually chosen! Comicpalooza has a special place in Mrs. Nola Nerd Couple’s heart in that she got to meet Mr. Cary Elwes there. This wasn’t a regular celebrity encounter. She was able to tell him a story of how special he is to her and really was moved by it. The staff and volunteers of this con have been great to us when were able to make, and friend of ours who have gone done panels there have had nothing but great things to say about it. In other words, we couldn’t think of a better con to be a podcast partner with!

Plus, if you have been reading our blog posts about Comicpalooza, you know this will be a great con. Felicia Day, Finn Jones, Jason David Frank, Robert Englund, Lance Henriksen, Chad Coleman, Lawrence Gilliard Jr, Amy Jo Johnson, Mary McDonnel, Mike Colter, Danielle Panabaker, and Candice Patton will be among the guests at this con.
We hope to see some of our Louisiana and Texas nerd friends there, and maybe even some from beyond.
