In this special episode of the Media Play News podcast, hosts Charles Parkman and Charlie Showley talk about their experience at the 2022 San Diego Comic-Con. The main floor was bustling, the lines stretched for miles, and the surrounding downtown area was transformed by studios’ promotional booths for upcoming movies and shows — although the crowds at the Gaslamp Quarter appeared much lighter than in the past.
Friday had the duo exploring the show floor and catching an early screening of the next season of Archer. Saturday and Sunday, Charles returned to the convention to see multiple live podcast recordings of pop culture reactions, behind-the-scenes Q&As of classic superhero cartoons, and cultural analyses of Justice League characters.
Yeah, we know Comic-Con’s a visual thing — but sometimes a word is worth a thousand pictures (and even if that’s not even remotely true, give our podcast a listen!).
