ANNCast Episode 006 - My Neighbor Tatara

Get the Flash Player to see this player.

The ANNCast reaches one third of the number of the beast with episode number 6! This week, NYAF big boss Peter Tatara shows up and shoots the breeze about his convention next weekend, the collapse of NYAF and NYCC into one con in 2010, his favorite TV shows, and more.

I wasn't kidding about the "more" part! Before all that, Justin and I chat about the unspoken rules of interacting with industry types, and then have a frank and honest discussion about some of Justin's deep-seeded psychological issues. No seriously! That actually happens!

At the end of the show it's all Twitter questions all the time. Check it out! You can't not listen to this episode!!

NSFW Language Warning: There's swearing in this episode and a few blue gags you might find offensive if you're wimpy about stuff like that. Just sayin'.
