I’ve been attending Wondercon since it relocated to Southern California in 2012. It’s also a welcomed convention since San Diego Comic Con sells out.
Wondercon 2017 has come and gone. This time I dressed up as The War Doctor (RIP John Hurt) to help advertise our podcast, Who New.
Living in Southern California I always went for comfort over costume, but now with a Podcast to promote I wore a long jacket in the warm Anaheim weather, we’re in spring, but it felt like summer. Continue reading
I’ve been quiet on the blogging front lately, but for good reason, I’ve been working on a Doctor Who podcast with some friends, you may have noticed that we went to Galliday.
Since we don’t have any new Who episodes till the end of the year we started re-watching episodes from the 2005 revival series, not that you need any reason to re-watch this quality programming, we just happened to record our conversations while re-visiting our favorite Time Lord.
The first Galliday of 2016 was this past weekend. What is Galliday? It’s where Doctor Who fans come out to Disneyland, you can read more about that here. I had been before, but this year decided to go all out, since I have a podcast I want to promote. It’s called Who New, more about that next time, back to Galliday. My friend Brian summed it up nicely in his article, (originally posted here) and below;

Wondercon 2016 has come and gone. This year it took place at the LA Convention Center, while not my favorite convention site, they did a great job utilizing the space. But you had to walk out to LA live, past the Staples Center, to attend certain panels and screenings. That was weird and sort of confusing at first, but the offsite events might’ve eased up on the congestion in the exhibit hall.
This year also introduced the new RFID badges, you had to scan everywhere.
Anyway, had a lot of fun this year, and #whonewpodcast was spreading due to word of mouth, hehehe.
