Earth Station One Ep 256
Conventions are billed as events where folks of all kinds can gather and celebrate something they love without judgement. However, is that always the case? Mike, Mike, Darren Nowell, and Sabrina Pandora take a personal look at sexual discrimination in fandom. We also chat with Marten Jallad talks about Joelanta and see if his vintage Action Man can save him from The Geek Seat! Plus, Edward Owen tells us about the new Con-GT for fans of Doctor Who. And Mark Maddox joins us for our reaction to the passing of a pop culture icon, Leonard Nimoy.

Feb 5 – Mar 7 Battle Space Wars, Dad’s Garage (Little Five Points, GA)
From the guys that brought you The Revengence and Effed Up Fairy Tales, here comes a sci-fi adventure that’ll knock your Cylon-loving socks off. In the writers’ signature, fast-paced, mash-em-up style – you’ll see our super talented actors weaving in and out of all sorts of characters and storylines that span time and space. From Starbuck to the sharks, nobody is safe from this Battlestar Galactica parody turned Sharknado spoof turned Armageddon send-up. Oh, and we’ve thrown in a little domestic spat about a threesome for good measure. What? Exactly. Don’t think about it too much, just give yourself over to the universe. And remember – in space, no one can hear you scream, but they can hear you laugh.
