We didn’t think we’d be able to pull it off at the last minute, but we did it! It’s our big 800th episode live recording. Producer Joe comes down from upstate to help out as usual. Special guests: Michael Emerson, Erica Schultz, Jonathan Baylis and Slanty Eyed Mama (Kate Rigg/Lyris Hung)! And, of course, because it’s an anniversary episode, there is plenty of music! Many thanks to the CNI Chorus consisting of Sarah Goldrainer, Liz Pepe, Kristen French, Nicky Schmidlein and Emmy Potter.  Big ups to Hourglass Tavern for letting us hold the show there for the 4th time. Give them a visit if you’re in NYC. News includes: Drew Goddard will direct X-Force, Colin Trevorrow is not directing Star Wars IX anymore, Harley Quinn’s 25th anniversary will have her drawn onto classic Batman covers, Futurama returns as a radio play, the Doctor Who spin-off Class has officially been cancelled and the Guy Ritchie directed live-action Aladdin casts Billy Magnussen as Prince Anders (ugh).

Michael Emerson teases some of his upcoming work on Arrow, talks about his love of the classics and relays some interesting fan interactions. Erica Schultz tells us about her new work Twelve Devils Dancing and other projects. Jonathan Baylis gives the scoop on the new issue of So Buttons…, his autobio comic anthology. And Slanty Eyed Mama update us on what’s happening with them and give us an epic improv spoken word accompanied by violin performance!
