Earth Station One Ep 211With Mike Gordon on vacation this week, Mike Faber and Bobby Nash are joined by Mark Heffernan as they take a look at the history of animation from the earliest hand-drawn cartoons up to the 1930’s in the first part of ESO’s History of Animation series. Also, Outlantacon’s Lee Cox and Edward DeGruy stop by to discuss the upcoming convention and Mike G. returns to strap Trek Trax’s Eric Watts into The Geek Seat. Plus, we have the usual assortment of Rants and Raves, The Khan Report, Shout Outs, Dr. Geek’s Moment of Science, and more on this animated episode of the Earth Station One podcast.

Join us for yet another episode of The Earth Station One Podcast we like to call: The History of Animation – pt 1 – The Golden Age
