Susan Canales is the owner of Undercity Comics. In the first of 2 episodes, Susan talks about growing up in a military family, bad 70's TV, 80's cartoons, the Brony phenomenon, Star Trek, and, of course, comic books.
I recorded a little something in honor of Jackie Robinson day, but after the events that are taking place in Boston, I decided not to post it. Then, the more I thought about it, the more I began to think about the things that happen in this world. As tragic as today's events are, nothing will ever diminish Robinson's accomplishments. We, like Robinson, need to be brave as we face whatever the future holds for us. And, like Robinson, we cannot let those who would seek to do us harm, bodily or otherwise, keep us from seeking out that future. So after thinking about all that, I decided to post it after all. There's nothing deep about what you are going to hear, nothing profound, just a bunch of human beings putting aside their troubles for a few precious minutes and seeking common ground with people who, up until a few minutes before, may have been strangers. You'll hear a bunch of people getting along and singing a song. So close your eyes, and listen, and maybe sing along. Maybe, for just a minute you can forget all the madness this world throws and us. And if reality does start to creep in, be brave. Just like Jackie.
I sit down with some denizens of the world famous Undercity and we discuss the Walking Dead finale, comics, and console games.
April is Autism Awareness month! I sat down with my friends Vicky and Abel, whose son, Joaquin, was diagnosed with Autism at an early age. They are open and honest about the trials, difficulties, and rewards of raising an autistic child. Vicky shared numerous resources with us and the links can be found below. If you only listen to one show I've done, PLEASE make it this one.
