CP Episode 52: The Art of Collecting


This week we welcome Jeff Shackelford as our guest. We met him last year at Magic City Con. He's got one of the biggest Star Wars toy collections in the Birmingham area so he's here to talk with us about the art of collecting. We discussed what kinds of things we like to collect and share some war stories of our experiences of acquiring things over the years.

But that's not all that we talked about. We also managed to get the conversation back on to American Gods, Alien: Covenant, and Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales. We also mourn the loss of Sense8 but relish in the idea that Animaniacs is coming back.

I'm going to be conducting some panels later this month at Magic City Con. If you're in the Birmingham area and you want to have a great time with some really nice people then you should come on out. You'll get a chance to meet me and maybe win some prizes in my Sci-Fi Jeopardy game. The convention is June 30-July 2 at the Winfrey Hotel here in Birmingham, Alabama. Tickets are not expensive and you can reserve some right now by visiting their website at magiccitycon.com.

You can listen to the show right here on the site or you can download it to your tablet or smartphone but looking us up on iTunes, Stitcher, or Podcast Addict on the Android store. Be sure to subscribe so that you'll know when a new show drops, and leave us a rating and a review so that we can help more people find the show.
