It was some last minute negotiating/planning, but Jimmy and Producer Joe were able to pull off an 11th hour anniversary episode! We gathered at the wee early hour of 12pm on Sunday at Adella wine bar (410 w. 43rd St) here in NYC. Thanks to Adella for hosting! Swing on by if you’re ever in NYC. Big thanks to special guests Michael Emerson, Carrie Preston, Fred Van Lente, Kate Rigg and Lyris Hung. And big ups to last minute drive-by guests that Jimmy called up: Miss Lasko-Gross, Vera Greentea and Rafael Kayanan. Of course, since it’s an anniversary episode, there was plenty of singing. Couldn’t have done it without the awesome CNI Chorus consisting of Rachel Felstein, Kristen French, James Rodriguez, Tony Wolf, Emmy Potter, and Amy Wolk. Thanks to all whom attended as well! We brought  back the “10 words or less” reviews and even covered some news in between. News included: a new Iron Man is coming and she’s a young black female named Riri Williams, John Cho says we’ll learn his character Sulu is gay in the upcoming Star Trek Beyond, Genndy Tartakovsky’s Luke Cage mini-series is finally coming to Marvel, Mondo is releasing an Over the Garden Wall vinyl album, and DC is bringing you a He-Man and the Masters of the Universe/Thundercats mini-series in October.

Michael Emerson talks about the Person of Interest finale and interesting fan encounters, Carrie Preston talks about her time on The Good Wife and True Blood and has great advice for young actors, Kate Rigg and Lyris Hung do an awesome nerdy spoken word improv, Fred Van Lente talks about some of his current/upcoming work like Weird Detective and Generation Zero, Miss Lask0-Gross discusses The Sweetness, Vera Greentea talks about her recent 9th successful Kickstarter for a new comic she’s writing (more Nenetl of the Forgotten Spirits) and Rafael Kayanan talks about his upcoming TV work.

Give it a listen and enjoy! On to 800! PLEASE DON’T STEAL THE AUDIO AND POST IT ELSEWHERE! JUST LINK TO THE COMIC NEWS INSIDER WEBSITE PLEASE!

It’s the epic 500th episode recording and we do it live with an audience at The Hourglass Tavern (373 w. 46th St.) in New York City! We’ve sang for years and have teased a musical since 2005…and this will be the closest you’ll get. Many a musical number and so many special guests! Michael Emerson (Person of Interest, Lost), Carrie Preston (True Blood, The Good Wife), Veronica Taylor (Pokemon), Kevin Maguire (Justice League), ChrisCross (Bloodshot, Katana), Rafael Kayanan (NCIS: LA, Conan), Simon Fraser (Nikolai Dante), Michelle Mozes (Blue Streak), Qui Nguyen (Vampire Cowboys Theatre Co.), and Heidi MacDonald (The Beat). News includes: lightsabers are going to be real, Marvel teases many new titles to be announced at NYCC, DC based TV shows Gotham andConstantine are on the way and Dynamite Entertainment launches toys/games line. The CNI chorus (Patrick Garrigan, Salli Garrigan, Amy Wolk, Kristen French and Erick Pinnick) opens the show with a rocking tune. Jimmy and Kristen sing a duet as Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner, a special voice mail from Avengers 2, and Jimmy almost spoils Breaking Bad in song. Many thanks to the rotating co-hosts Erica Schultz (the Podcast Wife), Emily Edwards and Kristin Garay. Of course, none of this would be possible without Producer Joe Gonzalez running everything. As always, listener feedback, Top 3 and more. Leave your iTunes comments! 5 stars and nothing but love!
