The theme of the day was Celebrity Sunday and Craig harnessed his 4 and a half years of podcasting into a 1 hour presentation. It was a packed house with people sitting on the floor and along the front of the stage! This new and custom made program just for this event was a hit and full of content. Thanks to the staff of the National Speakers Association for allowing Craig to share this with his podcast listeners.

Episode 161 – John Simons – Comicpalooza 2015 / audio

comicpalooza

John Simons, chairman of Comicpalooza (@comicpalooza on twitter) speaks with host Craig Price about putting a comic-con together. The two discuss the modest history of Comicpalooza from it’s humble beginnings in a movie theater lobby to the juggernaut can’t miss festival that boast 60,000 attendees (more are expected this year!). John explains how he had hoped to grow into a hotel ballroom type of space only to see his comic-con jump into the cavernous George R Brown Convention Center. He talks about how he plans ahead (sometime up to 3 years in advance) for upcoming conventions, who they decide to ask and what type of programming you can expect this year. Craig goes on and on about how great John Barrowman was at Comicpalooza 2014 (It’s kind of embarrassing), the diversity of programming available (it’s really like 10 small conventions happening at once) and the love of beer while waiting in line.

Comicpalooza’s mission is to provide the best and biggest annual multi-format pop culture convention in the southwest region of the United States, serving not only the fans of comics, science fiction, fantasy, video and table top gaming, anime, music and film, but also as a trade show and showcase for the studios, publishers, and manufacturers in those industries.

This year Comicpalooza is happening on May 22nd through the 25th. You can learn about all the guests currently scheduled (Craig is excited to see Haley Atwell and Henry Winkler) at http://www.comicpalooza.com

Entrepreneurs

Thom Singer (@thomsinger on Twitter) returns to talk about his new podcast Cool Things Entrepreneurs Do with host Craig Price. It seems podcasting guests are few and far between so when Craig heard Thom was starting up a new podcast dealing with entrepreneurs, he knew he needed to get Thom back on the show. The two discuss Thom’s show, how podcasting has opened up his network (even though he’s a master at it!) and what he’s learned talking to entrepreneurs. Craig also shares his insights into why Thom’s podcast has rocketed atop the iTunes (a good show is only one reason) and some of the ways Thom could use his podcast along side his Conference Catalyst program. If you’re on the fence about podcasting for your business you have to listen to this episode.

The also discuss what topics are on the rise and how podcasting can elevate your business. 

Elsie has her own podcast award-nominated podcast called “Elsie’s Yoga Class” at http://www.elsiesyogakula.com as well as her latest podcast she does for Libsyn called The Feed.
