Culture on My Mind
Execute Chapter 66
June 2, 2022
This week, the Dragon Con American Sci-Fi Classics Track talks about Star Wars on the franchise’s 45th anniversary.
On May 25th, Joe Crowe and Gary Mitchel were joined by the crew of Execute Chapter 66, a podcast that celebrates the literary side of the Star Wars universe. These podcasters included Beth Van Dusen (on Twitter), Chad Shonk (A Feat of Lunatic Daring), and Ryan Schweck (whose primary internet presence is the podcast). They were also joined by filmmaker John Hudgens (IMDb).
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 June 2nd. The future of these panels includes some vampires and a discussion of Saturday cartoons. 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.
