Episode 222 – Maximiliano Hernandez and Christina Wren / audio

Superhero movies

Maximiliano Hernandez (@maxitois4real on twitter) and Christina Wren (@ChristinaSWren on twitter) join host Craig Price to discuss their roles in superhero movies.

It’s a crossover episode! Craig’s latest podcast project Matinee Heroes spotlighted the movie Captain America: The Winter Soldier and included half of the interview from Marvelous Nerd Year’s Eve with Max (they’re close enough pals to use shorter names) but Christina also was dishing out wisdom too. So why waste such good stuff? Craig wouldn’t, of course. So here is their interview in its entirety.  The three have a great discussion on how Marvel’s (Max appeared in Thor, Avengers and other Marvel projects) process compares to DC’s (Christina appeared in Man of Steel and Batman v. Superman), how they found out they were going to be in these huge blockbuster movies and what it’s like meeting Robert Redford.  They also take questions from the audience as well.

Be sure to check out Matinee Heroes each week! What is Matinee Heroes? It is a podcast dedicated to exploring hero cinema – from adventurers, heroes, to superheroes; from Jedi to buddy cops; from the Wild West, to the distant past, to futures both hopeful and dystopian, from ancient lands to the deepest reaches of outer space. In a time when we need heroes more than ever, Alan and Craig will try to understand just what makes our cinematic heroes tick, and how we can use that heroism in our everyday life.

sign language

Jennifer Husband and Leyel Hudson of Blue Sun Interpreting (@comicconterp on twitter) sit with host Craig Price to discuss sign language interpreting.  Kicking off the 2016 Comic-Con season in Texas, Craig brings the first of his Comicpalooza Podcast Partnership Program episodes with some great “co-workers”.  Craig first met Jennifer and Leyel during his panel with actor David Anders and was so impressed that he also made sure to call them out in his Ming Chen panel that fall at FanFair. The three talk about dealing with celebrities that ramble (Bill Shatner), celebrities that are super cool and interactive (John Barrowman) and how to deal with nerd words that don’t exist in the “real” world. They also discuss their own mini-convention Deaf Con that will be happening May 7th!  But mostly they geek out over upcoming cons and celebrities. They also discuss their latest venture Blue Sun Interpreting.  Blue Sun Interpreting is dedicated to providing qualified, certified, knowledgeable, professional American Sign Language (ASL) interpreting services for comic conventions and other events in order to provide communication access for Deaf and Hard of Hearing individuals. Not only does Comicpalooza stand behind these great interpreters but Reality Check and Craig endorse them wholeheartedly.
