It’s the epic 900th episode live recording! And strap in, kids. It’s a LENGTHY ONE at almost 2 hours! We were having so much fun chatting with guests that we didn’t realize the time. You’ll love it though! Once again, Jimmy and Producer Joe hold their anniversary podcast at Hourglass Tavern in NYC. Thanks to Beth & Josh for being such awesome hosts at their restaurant! Jimmy hosted while Producer Joe manned the tech boards while co-hosting. Jimmy welcomed special guests Michael Emerson, William Jackson Harper, Jamal Igle, Rebecca Soler and Liana Kangas. Like every anniversary episode, Jimmy wrote song parodies and recruited friends to be a part of the CNI Chorus. Thanks to Kristen French, Kami Graves, Cheryl Orsini, Rachel Gavaletz, Nic Rockwood and Brianna Melroy for singing their lungs out! And big ups to my newsreaders and reviewers Emily Edwards, Gretchen Souerwine and Ali Sattar.

Such a fantastic night! Thanks to everyone whom attended. We packed the room to standing room only! For reals! Everyone had a great time. Great to see friends and strangers alike that came along to enjoy the show. We couldn’t have made it this far without all of the CNI listeners.

Jimmy has tamed the beast that was San Diego Comic Con and survived to tell the tales! Here, you’ll hear his recap of the show. Just a few fun tidbits of what went down, people he met, celebs he saw, elbows he rubbed, parties, roundtable sessions, interviews, awesome press rooms, hotels, outside of Comic Con, and all of the madness! He mostly did press rooms but managed to get some 1:1 interviews as well. He chatted with the Clare Kramer (“Glory” on Buffy the Vampire Slayer) about her new documentary that she directed called Joyrider. He also talked to pop star Lights about her upcoming album Skin & Earth and the comic book mini-series she created/wrote/drew/colored/lettered/etc. that coincides with it. On the last day of the con, he conversed with Shannon Wheeler about his new book Sh*t My President Says as well as his past work. And finally, Jimmy had his annual therapy session interview with clinical psychologist pal Dr. Andrea Letamendi discussing superheroes, Star Wars, and real life issues.

Starting next week and the following few weeks after, there will be no regular format shows. Only SDCC press room specials. Jimmy needs that long just to recover from all of the craziness that is Comic Con International. You will hear roundtables for Inhumans, Wynonna Earp, Doctor Who, Legends of Tomorrow, Batman and Harley Quinn, Dirk Gently, Supergirl, Dark Matter, Battlestar Galactica reunion, Gotham, iZombie, Justice League Action, Lucifer and Teen Titans Go! He missed some rooms that he wanted to cover but boy howdy did he still cover a lot!
