Culture on My Mind
February 28, 2022
The week, the Dragon Con American Sci-Fi Classics Track is celebrating the sports of science fiction as we come into March, which is mad for hoops or something.
On February 24th, the panel of Darin Bush (on Amazon, though the man really needs a website) and Shaun Rosado (pneumaz on Twitter) joined Joe Crowe and Gary Mitchel for a celebration of the thrill of victory and the agony of defeat. Dodging that bludger, bouncing on that trampoline, and doing some real podracing!
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.
The next panel will be on March 10th. The docket contains battling bands, a famous bloodsucker, and a bonus panel that shall remain nameless for now. You can find all of 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.
