Tomorrow night’s show features Marsia Powers, the convention chairperson of a new Los Angeles area convention called Fandomopolis. The new convention makes its debut May 8-10, 2015, at the Airtel Plaza hotel in Los Angeles, California. Special guests so far are Marc Scott Zicree, producer and show runner of Space Command, and actor and producer Juliet Landau of Buffy the Vampire Slayer fame.
Tune in Saturday January 10, 2015, at 9:00 p.m. to hear the program. Gene Turnbow and Susan Fox host.
Fandomopolis is not one of these super-conventions with an expected attendance measuring in the tens of thousands. It’s a more friendly, fan run convention where convention-goers can actually get into the panels and events without having to pay an extra fee and actually talk to the convention’s guests and celebrities. It’s a sincere, heartfelt attempt to start taking conventions back from the giant corporations and give them back to the fans. It also stands alone among fandom conventions in that it’s run by Fandom Charities Inc, a 501(c) corporation and the same people who run the popular Joss Whedon fan site Whedonopolis.
Visit Fandomopolis.org for more information on the convention and about how you can attend.
If you miss tomorrow evening’s program, you can hear it again on Sunday January 11, 2015, and at various times throughout the coming week. Check our What’s On When page for air times in your area.
