Culture on My Mind
Fly You Fools! (The Second Breakfast)
January 21, 2022
If you know The Lord of the Rings, you know that there is a lot to talk about. As a result, the Dragon Con American Sci-Fi Classics Track celebrated twenty years of assembling the Fellowship… twice!
The first panel on this was held on January 13th and discussed here.
On January 20th, the panel of Darin Bush (on Amazon, though you should join me in telling him that he really needs a website), Kevin Cafferty (Gleaming the Tube), Sherman Burris (NerdBurger358 on Twitter), and Beth Van Dusen (Execute Chapter 66, available where all fine podcasts are fed) joined Joe Crowe for one more round of hot Middle-Earth action.
These Classic Track Quarantine Panels will be held once every two weeks (or every fortnight, if you will). If you want to play along at home, grab your internet-capable device of choice and navigate the webs to the YouTube channel and/or the group on Facebook. If you join in live, you can also leave comments and participate in the discussion using StreamYard connected through Facebook, YouTube, and Twitch.
If you want to connect with the track, Joe, and/or Gary on the socials, you can find them on Twitter (ClassicTrack, JoeCroweShow, and sneezythesquid) and Instagram (SciFiClassicTrack, JoeCroweShow, and Gary_Mitchel). And, of course, to celebrate more pop culture awesomeness, you can find Dragon Con all year round on the internet, Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook.
Since this was a special event, the next panel will be on January 27th when we celebrate another 20th anniversary. You can find this and more every other Thursday as the American Sci-Fi Classics Track explores the vast reaches of classic American science fiction.
The episode art each week is generously provided by the talented Sue Kisenwether. You can find her (among other places) on Women at Warp: A Star Trek Podcast.
Culture on My Mind is inspired by the weekly Can’t Let It Go segment on the NPR Politics Podcast where each host brings one thing to the table that they just can’t stop thinking about.
