It's the epic 600th episode/10 Year Anniversary recording! As usual, we record our anniversary episodes live at a bar and once again, we were at The Hourglass Tavern (373 w. 46th St) here in NYC. Thanks to Beth, Joss and the staff for taking great care of us all. It was a fun filled night with special guests, a few songs and many a drink. Producer Joe was on hand to take care of all of the tech while Jimmy hosted the grand event. Jimmy chatted with old friend Michael Emerson in a lengthy talk about his career, advice for young actors, fan interactions and more. He also talked to awesome comic book writers Anthony Del Col, Vera Greentea and Erica Schultz. Yes, the podcast wife has lots of great writing gigs going on and coming your way. Alas, a few cancellations over the last week (including some comic artists and actors) but still a great group of guests. Thanks to all! Mad props to guest co-hosts Emily Edwards and Jon Hoche for helping out with news and reviews. And big ups to the CNI Chorus (Rachel Felstein, Erick Pinnick, Emmy Potter, Dana Aber, Amy Wolk and Kristen French) for being so melodic and having fun with us.  News includes: Dark Horse comics is bringing back Barb Wire, the animated The Smurfs reboot gets a release date, X-Men: Apocalypse has cast an actual Asian as Jubilee, Legendary Comics to release a Pacific Rim comic, Fear the Walking Dead is the official name for the spin-off and Maisie Williams will guest star in Doctor Who.

Thanks for listening!
